Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. I'm sorry to hear your daughter's chameleon is having some problems. Some additional information will help me determine the best steps for her to take.

What temperatures are maintained under the basking light and on the cool side of the cage?

What brand of UVB light does she have?

What is being fed? Any supplements?

What is the humidity level?

How is the chameleon's appetite?

Thank you.
