Hello Shan, I'm Dr. Deb.
I recently came online adn see that your question about Chamelio hasn't been answered. I'm sorry that you've had to wait for a response but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.

The problem of yellow skin could be related to several different possible explanations from husbandry issues to diet. So, in an effort to narrow down the list a bit, I'd appreciate the answers to the following questions:

1. Do you have a UVB light?
a) If so, how old is it?
b) If is a florescent tube or a coil?
c) Strength?
d) Brand?
2. If your enclosure glass or screen?
3. Do you have an auto mister?
4. What supplements do you provide, if any?
5. What is his diet?

There may be a delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you and I may be offline when you post your replies. But, I'll get back to you as soon as I can since I'm on my computer a good part of the day. Thanks for your patience. Deb
