prepare to get bitten :)

there are chemicals in the glue on duct tape that could irritate your cham's skin so you really need to get it off of him asap. try distracting him with one hand and getting the tape with the other.. or try giving him a superworm or something that'll take him a sec to chew and get it while he has his mouth full

good luck :)

Your the one that got the tape on him and now it looks like your are going to have to pay for this mistake. Stick your hand in slow, remember that most lunges are bluffs (do not jump and jerk away) and then peel that sucker off. Now if I had money on this I would say you get bite right about the time you start peeling off the tape. I suggest finding something better then tape for a job like that in the future. I use wire ties or twist ties. Not sure but it seems like they would last longer then tape.

Water is the universal solvent. Maybe more will do it. Try putting him in the shower for a while. Can't hurt.

Update

IT CAME OFF! I called a vet and told me to put humidity on full blast and soak him i mean drench him and all i tried didnt work so i was going to drive an hour and thirty minutes away and trying to get him into the box he got his foot stuck to it and i started to flip out! but all of the sudden it came offf!!!! I am so lucky. Lesson Learned! Remember if anything is stuck to them lots of humidity and water! Hes all happy now!

So did the bites hurt?
Fractal used to want to bite... until I had to give him antibiotics. Everytime he opened his mouth he got some. He bit the syringe and I stayed steady so he would know he did not affect me. Now he keeps his mouth closed. lol For now....
