I hear about all the symptoms of dehydrated chameleons, but I'm just not sure what exactly sunken eyes look like. Does anyone have pics of a dehydrated chameleon or know where to find them?
I don't think mine is dehydrated, but I've only seen him drink once and he is eating quite a few leaves. I would just like to know what I am looking for just in case.

It's pretty severe and this cham is no longer alive, but there are pictures of what you want to see in the health forum.

As I said the sunken eyes are pretty bad, but you can see what is being referred to and where the "sunkeness" occurs.
I had a hard time looking at these pictures.

Thanks Heika.
Your links make it easier, although I'm not going to click on them.
I can't stand to look at those pictures again.

Howdy,

I'll add that severe dehydration will likely have sunken eyes as a symptom but that sunken eyes is often a symptom of any severe health problem and even just severe stress without an underlying health issue at all can cause sunken eyes. It all depends...:(.
