I hope someone will read this message and be able to help us by answering the questions we're wondering about..
We just found out that Kamileo is in fact KAMILIA!!!
Unfortunately we didn't realize that it's a female until after around a month from getting her. She escaped her temporary cage (we put her in a big cage up on the roof which has natural plants in pots, but when we bring her to the room during the night because it's warmer then we have a small empty cage that we removed the bottom and we just put it over her sometimes when she's sleeping when we want to sleep too so she won't escape in the very cluttery room, this time we were blocking the open side of the cage with a pillow which was stuffed in the space, we overslept and after we woke up around noon we were very surprised when we found that she pushed the pillow and got out) and disappeared for around 2 days in the room!
Then we found her and she was very skinny, but up until this point we still thought it was a male, and when we saw how skinny he was, we just thought it's because it's been couple of days he didn't have food or water.
We put him back in his cage, it was around midnight, and at noon the next day my boyfriend found one single egg in his cage that wasn't there a while ago! It was in the water cup we put there. I checked online and found it exactly the same as a chameleon's egg, and when i saw the quantity they lay, I told my boyfriend and he looked under the couch, and OMG he found like 20 other eggs on the floor :S
Now we don't know what to do, I mean we know that we should get sand, but we only have dirt from the type you plant in, is this good enough for her to lay more eggs if she needs to? (The area we got her from there's no sand around only dirt)? We don't know if she still has eggs to lay.
Also, she ate once after that, does this mean she's safe? Or is there a chance that she might die? :( Her grip is fine and the same as it was before, she's just a little more aggressive,and very skinny compared to how she was. Is she going to stay that skinny? Is it normal?
Could her eggs be fertile since we only have her for one month now and maybe before we caught her in the wild she mated with someone?
Please help if you know the answers!
