Sick chameleon

this Morning I had to rush my Larry to the vet. He’s been acting weird the past few days and this morning I found him with his tongue out and eyes closed. He’s at the vet for observation right now and I’m waiting to see what they have to say.

He was roaming the cage a lot and clawing at the roof of his cage. I thought at first he just wanted to get to my female till I noticed he stopped eating

I'm curious as to how a captive bred chameleon ends up with these parasites? Do they already have them from birth and it waits for a moment of weakness to attack its host? Going to dig into this...

going back to the coccus, how is he doing, poor guy, I think it may be a good idea to gut and srpay you're cage down with a bleach solution and hose it down for a good wash too to make sure there hasn't been anything in the cage giving your guy coccus, forgot to mention it but just better to be safe than sorry
