Hi, I AM IN URGENT NEED OF HELP. I’ve seen unusual “spots” on my chameleon and I believe they might be burns, I am very worried. Also, today she decided she wanted to come out of the cage and I noticed something that looks like a cut of some sort. I have also been wondering if she is too skinny or if I am simply stressing myself out for no reason. PLEASE HELP.

Looks like it could be burns to me.
Have you tested the basking light to see if it's too hot under it?
Put your hand palm side down, as close to the basking light as possible inside the cage...if you want to move it then it's hot enough to burn the chameleon.

Do you have a laybin in her cage?

Okay so I researched a ton about laying bins and literally could not find anything helpful but I have a medium sized bin with clean rocks (about the size of grains of sand) and pebbles on top. Any advice for the laying bin? Also thanks for the heat tip, I will try it.

Welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry, but between the Resources section, the archives, Chameleon Academy, Neptune the Chameleon, and google in general, I find that very difficult to believe.

I am not a veterinarian. Some of the spots on your chameleon look like burns to me too, but they also look like there could be some other things going on (the scales along the backside of the casque).

Either way, I would take this girl to a herp vet to be checked out and possibly for some
Silver sulfadiazine ointment (prescription only).

You’ll need at least a 12x12” (length x width) container - bigger is just fine. Fill to about 6” deep with washed play sand (you can get at any home improvement store) and keep it moist enough to hold a tunnel without collapsing. Your girl will find it when she needs it. Once she starts digging, she’ll need absolute privacy or she may stop and become egg bound.
