My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and Reptile Rescue.
Can you tell me if it is a screen enclosure?
UVB light, Linear tube or compact coil strength. age of bulb and brand?
White basking light?
State to locate a Herp Vet?
Type of chameleon?
When a chameleon is on low branches and on the ground and is a Female, I get very concerned. Female chameleons can lay eggs without a Male. The behavior you described could be that of a Gravid female. The big issue is that chameleons can get eggbound very easily. This is vary dangerous for the chameleon and many people loose their pets due to this. The positive note is she is still eating, but the warning signs that something is wrong is there. I have to suggest a Herp Vet visit to have her checked out. Once they go off food you are in an extreme danger Zone with them. If you supply a State I can locate some Herp Vets for you. If the UVB is over 6 months of age you will want to replace it and also being a femal make sure her prey is dusted with calcium 5 days a week as well as two days a week with a Vitamin. Femal Chameleons as well as most female Reptiles require extra calcium.
Please hit reply to discuss this information and we can continue and supply the state for a Herp Vet.
