Since November (2008) I have kept two side striped chameleons. Wednesday morning I noticed that one wasn't eating. From previous experience I know chameleons go down hill quick. I was going on a trip to the vets the following day. I went out into the reptile room at about half past ten that night, to feed the giant millipedes, and she was fine and wandering around. I woke up on Thursday to find that she had died during the night. She had always been a bright green colour, but most of her was now pure black. The male was very distressed and pacing the vivarium floor. I removed her and he calmed. I then disinfected the whole viv and all it's contents, and replaced my one remaining male. He seems to have calmed down but is craving human attention. Just wondering if anyone else has come across such a sudden unexpected death? Thanks!
