I'm a Veterinary nurse a Veiled Chameleon came in from a pet store as a owner return with is tongue hanging out about 1 inch , the end about 1/2 was dead this was the 1st time we ever saw anything like this ! checking with the reptile vet in my area he suggested Euthanasia saying the dead part would need to be removed and surgery would be risky ... my heart broke I was wiling to try to hand feed or what ever he needed but myself and the doctor were at a loss of how to do the surgery safely ? when I came back to check on him his tongue was back in his mouth !! in looking closer he bite the dead part off I brought him home I have had him 1 day at this point he looks good (not eating ) in reading discussion I see there may be a chance to help him I will do what I can for him and will be grateful for any Guidance and advice .
