What type of hosuing do you have for your Chameleon
Do you have a UVB light? How old? Tube or coil? Strength?
Is she housed alone?
Whare is her enclosure in the house?
How old is the UVB tube?
Have you tried any other feeders?
Is she able to use her tongue with no problems?
The husbandry sound very good. The only issue with the husbandry that may be causing a problem is the UVB is old. UVB bulbs loose potency after 6 months and sometimes sooner depending on the type of bulb. My personal preference is the Reptisun tube 8.0. The first suggestion I have is to have the UVB bulb changed and see if that makes a difference. Many time Chameleons are sensitive to UVB rays or lack of and that may be having an effect on your Chameleon.
The other issue would be parasites that can throw her off food. Parasites can come in through feeder insects. If this is the case you chameleon will need to be checked out by a Herp Vet and treated for parasites. I would be happy to try and locate a Herp Vet for you with a State.
I do have a couple of suggestions that you can try beside changing the UVB light. You can try some different feeders. Silk worms, Phoenix worms and goliath worms would all be good to try to entice her to eat. You can order them online www.coastalsilkworms.com or www.mulberryfarms.com. You cna also try some meat flavor stage 1 baby food mixed with calcium and drop on her snout and see if she will take some as a supplemental food.
Please let me know if you would like a list of Herp Vets by supplying a state and hitting reply to Expert.
I thought abouth that and this is the season, but you would notice a lot of weight gain, as well as she is a bit young, but I cnanot rule that out. They can lay infertile eggs if not with a male. You could set up a lay box for her. This link has some instructions on making a lay bin: http://www.ehow.com/how_8614194_breed-ambilobe-panther-chameleons.html I prefer using a rubbermade bin for them to lay in, but the set up instructions are in the link.
The Vet can also check her for eggs if you take her in.
If she has not been with a male they will be infertile so can be frozen and disposed of after being laid.
I will follow up in a few days to see how things are going. Please do not forget to increase the calcium and change the UVB light for her health.
