Temp in basking area and ambient temp?
How long has it been swollen?
Thank you! The swollen tongues is a very serious issue and will need to be addressed by a Herp Vet.. I can locate some for you with a State. If CA please let me know north or South.
The swelling could be the result of a Vitamin A Deficiency or could be an Infection. The Chameleon will require an Anti inflammatory and an Antibiotic and if Vitamin A issue they will address that.
Right now we need to hydrate the Chameleon a warm soak. For feeding try some chicken baby food with a pinch of calcium if he swallow it.
Please reply to dicuss this information and for a list of Herp Vets.
Reptiles are prey animals and hide illness, So it is very important to get him helop as soon a s possible.
