Here is a chart for lay bins, she needs one ASAP. She also needs an experienced chameleon vet to do x-rays to see if she is egg-bound or anything, as well to treat her burns. Please raise her heat bulb up, too

So she need a laying bin but she is only 5 1/2 months old
Yes…she looks very plump and her coloring is suspect for eggs.
I don’t have the money to take her to the vet can I treat the burn myself
A vet is best as is the burn cream they would prescribe. However, for now you could put a thin layer of Neosporin (without pain relief) on the area. If you fill out the help form above and provide us with pics of everything, we can help make sure everything is perfect for your little lady.
