How long are you baby sitting the chameleon?
Does the chameleon have a UVB light?
Do you know howd it is?
Is there a basking light?
Is there an auto mister?
Do you know if she has ever laid eggs?
Any open mouth breathing?
Please let me know do they have a UVB light? The chameleon needs two digerent types of lighting. This could have great bearing on what is going on. The chameleon should also be getting a calcium supplement 5 days a week and the vitamin only 2 days a week. They should have an automister because chameleons dehydtrate easily.,.
Being 6 months, she is of age to carry and lay eggs.
Any time a chameleon is down at the bottom of an enclosure is a sign of a sick chameleon. I would like to suggest giving a warm soak gor 15 mins in a shallow basin. Once the soak is obe gently pat dry and place in the basking area. Thiswill hydrate the chameleon. YOu can supplementally geed using chicken baby food with a pinch of calcium and drop on the snout and allow her to lick it off. I do suggest a Herp Vet visit since they can go down very quickly. Iwould be happy tolocate a Herp Vet for you with a State or Country.
Please reply to discuss this information. If they do not have a UVB bulb I suggest a reptisun 10,0.
I suhhest a Reptisun 10.0. They need to be replaced every 6 months. The UVB metabolized the calcium into D3 in the body to prevent Metabolic Bone Disease.
