Pet: Veiled Chameleon
Name: Junior
Age: 3 years old

Issue:
New habitat and Junior is dark green and black; we understand that this is caused by stress.New Plants are chameleon approved and polished river rock is store bought. Junior sits at the bottom of the cage on top of the rocks - this is dangerous because he is away from his heat source (lamp) but ambient is about 80 degrees with 60% humidity.

Action:
I worked with him to get him back up top and now he is in the palm plant - hiding head down like he's a leaf - his color is green.
Not taking water or food - offering every 3 - 4 hours.
Good and proven direction is welcome and needed here.

Thank You
