Any else have Oustaleti chameleons? I have a question about my possibly gravid female.
Not a popular breed, you should just ask your question, they are similar in care requirements to Panther's.
It sounds like she might be sick.
Here’s a photo of a gravid female.
Was just thinking that could be a sign of her being sick/dehydrated. What's your watering like? Have your had a fecal exam done recently?
Yup you're posting for everyone on the forum . If you say she's trying to lay eggs definitely give her a break and don't let her see you while digging.
To me though it looks like she is very sick/dehydrated as mentioned. I think a vet trip+fecal exam is in order. Her eyes are very sunken In. The shower method is a great way to rehydrate. You could also add hornworms. The dripper and hand spraying may not be enough, I would get an automatic mister if you can.
I did the shower trick again. Her skin definitly seems less tight, if that's a thing. I also ordered the mistking starter kit today. I will keep up on the shower each day till it arrives.she looks beautiful though, i would also try a shower. its good because it gives her a chance to experience "rain" and running water on a larger scale. if you dont want to do a shower try a 5 min mist. chams all seem to love anything that moves to moving water droplets are very enticing to chams.
