Customer Question

Today I got a 3 1/2-4 month old ambilobe Panther chameleon. She's been squinting in one eye and and has been pushing her eye out of the socket. I lightly showered her for 5 min so she can get some water in it she was breathing a little heavy after but seems fine now walking all around the cage but keeps closing her eye after a few minutes, moving it around, and opening it again. Is something wrong

Can you tell me about the enclosure? Tank or screen enclosure?

UVB light, coil or linear tube and strength?

Mister in the enclosure?

Is the eye still popping out?

State to locate a Herp Vet?

Can you post a Picture of what you are seeing with the eyes?
