Hi- sounds like MBD (metabloic bone disease) and a vet is need to help reverse this, with injections of calcium and a good UVB light source for indoors, and regular outdoor sun time. The vet will asses how bad things are and will help you in the process. You will need to change your feeding habbits, to gutloaded crickets if you are not already doing so, and regular dusting of food with calcium, D3, and vitamins. Veiled chameleons are prone to this and with improper care this happens. Check out the adcham.com website for more info, and get her to a vet! Offer a verity of foods, silkworms are a great treat for chameleons, check out ebay or mulberyfarms.com for them.


BTW this forum has switched over to the new forum http://forums.kingsnake.com/forum.php?catid=44 you should start posting there!

:my female veiled (4mon) has been diagnosed with a fatal disease in witch they lose coordination (miss aiming for food, can't balance on branches, etc.) i have found her many times on the floor of her cage lying on her side with her back feet clenching her front legs. i have been treating her with cipro which seems to help. she is still eating well. has anyone heard of anything like this or have any suggestions for me? thanks.
