No I didn’t see a bubble and she hasn’t opened her mouth at all. Her cage is 72. I put a light blanket over most of the cage last night and woke up in the middle of the night to check temperature and it was 60. She is a juvenile I got yesterday maybe 3-4 months?Did you actually see a bubble? Veiled chameleons can handle night time temperature drops all the way to the low 50s. Have you seen her gaping or hear a popping noise when she opens her mouth at all?
What do you gutload with? How often do you dust and with what? How long do you mist for? When you get the money, invest in a t5HO linear uvb bulb and fixture and an automated misting system. What’s the basking and ambient temps? Have you read the veiled care sheet here? It might just be me, but her eyes look a little sunken it, she could be dehydrated. Her cage needs more branches and vines, mostly horizontal, everywhere, along with more plant coverYOU CHAMELEON: veiled female unsure of age maybe 4 months?

CURRENT PROBLEM: I want to make sure she is getting everything she needs and I’m not missing anything!
Cricket Quencher is only a watering gel, not a gutload. Get a quality gutload like Cricket Crack, Mazuri, Pangea, or Repashy.I gutload with cricket quencher yellow jelly. Is that okay? I’ve been doing 10 crickets a day, I’ll just keep adding more when she is low in her tank.
I mist until the cage is dripping so about two minutes. Then when the cage is dry I do it again.
As for temps the tank stays at around 71-75. Basking is 84.
I took this picture right after I got her. I was worried that she did look dehydrated but her eyes are good now I have been misting regularly. Just haven’t seen her drink yet.
Dust every feeder right before you feed them off with phosphorous-free calcium without D3 every feeding, phosphorous-free calcium with D3 twice monthly, and a multivitamin twice monthlyI dust with repti calcium by zoomed. I put a little bit in and shake the container. I do this with every feeding.
