my female veiled cham ate a few bits off of the plant in her enclosure, a ficus lyrata. should I be worried? she’s acting fine
but she’s not gonna like , die right? like what’s the worst that can happen so that ikDon't know from personal experience....but...
omg what a relief thank you so muchYou should be safe. Your cham is not going to die. All ficus (genus) plants that I know of produce sap. Yet, Ficus benjamin (a sap producer) is considered plant safe on chameleon academy and many other websites. I'm certain your cham will be fine. Just make sure that the sap (if any) is cleaned up. The sap could gum up the eyes if rubbed against. Otherwise, you should be fine.
I literally cut off the leaves that she bit bc she kept going back to those two so I was trying to see if she would stopAlso, you should take a picture of the leaf that was bitten. Keep an eye on your cham. In a couple days, send a picture of both to Bill Strand and he'll upload it to his website. We hardly know what is safe and what is harmful. But datapoints like this are extremely helpful.
