Hi- Well veiled chameleons should be housed in all screen cages after there first 1-3 months out of the eggs. Veileds don't like high humidity. They like humidity around 60% and a basking spot of 95-105F. What do you have on the bottom of the tank? What kind of lighting do you have? This is a perfect example why chameleons do not do well in glass tanks! You need to get her out of the vivarium (tank) and in to an all screen cage with the proper setup. It may be to late to save this one, since she is so young.

:Hey,
:I had a baby vailed for about 3 months. About 5 days ago she stopped eating, is loosing weight and for the last day and a half has eyes 99% closed. Any ideas what's going on? She's currently in a vivarium with 99% humidity as her eyes are showing signs of dehydration.
:Thanks
