She wont eat

I am not sure if this is something that I need to be worried about or not. I'm not sure if this is very serious but my female chameleon the lethal will not eat. She has been like this for the past two days I'm not sure if I should keep offering her food because there's still living food in the feeding area. If anyone has any idea why this is happening or if I should make a vet visit or not please tell me the next time that I can possibly make a vet visit at all will probably be Friday. I do have live in ready in case she is gravel. More sound will be added as needed.15755054745027187618341598559326.jpg15755055074514845134131891685366.jpg15755055461144621713888626532111.jpg

Most likely she is gravid and getting ready to lay. Cover up the lower half of her enclosure to give her privacy. It may be a couple of days, so if she’s visible on a branch in the morning, offer food and hydration then cover her until the next morning.

Does she have a proper lay bin in her cage?
Has she laid eggs before?
No she has not and she is hearing the 1 year old mark

I will do this but are you all 100% sure she is gravis I know some people are very experienced in veild's not that I don't trust any of you but still want 100% verification
I use washed playsand produced by Kings instead of soil.
I do use plays and so I think I should put more? The last pic is the lay in shoulders I put it in a more accsessable aria other than on the bottom in the front corner of the vivarium.
Also am I allowed to keep the mistking on while she is laying?

I can't see your last picture clearly.
Look at the link I gave you and set the laybin up like that. If you wait too long to give her a proper place she could become eggbound and die.

Between her age, coloration, plumpness and not eating I’d put my money on her being gravid. With that being said though, my Stella has her colors on and isn’t wanting to eat and is nonstop cruising around her enclosure (she’s always been a little porker) but she’s receptive...not yet gravid.

OK so I moved the bottom around a bit and this is the sand refilled.

The sand will hold form as shown15755893547387337941379187954331.jpg
Is there anything else I need to prepare other than cover the bottom
