I wasn't advising force feeding or forced hydration. But the shower method is at least something to try if hydration could be a factor. If she is as you describe as "too far gone" than what's the harm?Please be aware that sunken eyes do NOT always indicate dehydration! Forcing water on a sick chameleon can do more harm than good. It can be dehydration, but there are many instances where chameleons are ill and unfortunately on their way out when their eyes sink in. In any case, it is a bad sign.
