Hi all, I have had my Chams for about 2 weeks now, when we got them I was told the female was just a fatty, I'm not begining to think that is the case, her belly is almost bloated feeling, she poos regularly, and eats well, I thought maybe she was getting ready to lay eggs so provided her with a box in the bottom of her enclosure.
18x18x36 screen cage, hummidity level is 60% basking spot is 90*, uvb lamp is brand new last week-Reptisun 5.0 fluorescent bulb. Pothos,rubber tree and dracenea tree. There is also jungle vines throughout her enclosure.She eats crickets mainly, mealworms couple times a week, wax worms once a week. food is gutloaded 24 hours in advance and dusted with vitamins and d3 supplements 2-3 times a week. I have noticed that the end of her tail isn't right, is crooked, so now I'm thinking MBD.
When my friend was over last night(she runs a reptile rescue) I asked her to take a look,she palpatated her belly and couldn't feel any eggs, she also noticed that she crawls almost on her elbows, which I haven't noticed because I only see her climbing her branches and such, not out on my arm as she was lastnight.
I am calling the herp vet Monday for an appointment.
I have tried warms soaks just in case she needs to do a big poo (with careful observation so she wouldnt drown)
Any other ideas? I tried to post her pics, but it wouldn't load, will try to put them in my album
