Potential problem with newly aquired Nosey Be


New Member
So I have had my new cham for 2 days and so far he's be acting and eating quite healthy but I recently witnessed him almost yawning and to the point where it looked like he was going to throw up. So I just turned my mister on and he seemed to calm down...I had also just shut off the heat and uvb. Any idea's?

(previous owner told me lights on at 9 and off at 9) is this correct?

Been feeding crickets and silk worms properly dusted.
Was this only one time or have you noticed it a lot? Chameleons are impressive yawners and sometimes it can look like they're having trouble, but it shouldn't be something that occurs frequently.

Okay Male Nosey be roughly 3.5-4 months, been In my care for 2 days, Been feeding morning, afternoon, night yesterday I was using crickets, and today I used silk worms (5 fed, throughout day silk worms are eating chow)lightly dusted with calcium phos free and d3 free. haven't handled the cham at all since in my care as I want him to adapt,I'm using rep cal brand. Watering I have a habba mist, with the remote nozzle and I also use a dripper cup about 2 times a day in between mistings. (misting is 30 seconds every 3 hours). all fecal matter looks fine. Cage is a fresharium not sure the specs but he has the right amount of space. For humidity I use an umbrella plant and wrapped the back half of the fresharium in saran wrap. located in my room near a window but not effected by the window, he is roughly at my chest level (I'm 6'2). I due tend to keep the fan on very low for air flow, and its a very non traffic area.
