    Hello there,
    I have a veiled Chameleon (almost 1 yr old) and it is lethargic with closed eyes all day and not eating 2 days now.
    It is in a medium terrarium with moss substrate vines and fake plants. I have a waterfall inside with 24/7 running water.
    I have a uvb lamp 12h open, temperature around 27-32oC and humidity 45-70% (when it drops I spray)

    Hi there, can you post some photos of the chameleon itself along with its enclosure? How high is the basking temp at? is 27 deg c the ambient temperature? What type of thermometer are you using to measure the temps and how do you measure the humidity?

    I have two thermometer/humidity meter (one in each side) and another humidity meter(exo terra) in the inside of the terrarium
    I pictured his gums to see if it has infection. but im not sure..

    Hi, can you take a photo of the hygrometer/thermometer?
    The photo of the mouth is not very clear (it looks nice and healthy, but it`s slightly blurred), can you take another photo?

    The humidity range you describe tells me that after you spray it goes to 70% and when it drops to 45% is when you spray.
    Unfortunately stable humidity is required and if you take the average then you're only providing roughly 55% at most times. This is too low.
    I went through this myself when I had veileds and I could be wrong of course but I would highly suspect dehydration has caused some health issues.
