    exchanged him from the breeder, because the first was a female. was fine at the breeders home, but now is sleeping with it hanging down

    Please elaborate and show pictures. Nobody can help if we cant see what is going on. Most likely it is stress from going somewhere new. And didn't you say that the babies were 3-4 months old? Those babies definitely did not look that age, and the breeder should not sell them that young

    yes i know but the breeder is not taking very good care of them and is selling them at all ages, so I'm trying to save a few because I'm not confident in his abilities. and he's asleep right now so id have to take some photos in the morning

    If you are trying to save a few, why would you return a female, and be looking for a male?

    Going "somewhere new"from stress as stated above will not cause a chameleon to favor its leg. It is possible it injured it in someway . Hanging the leg down off the branch for prolonged period of time can indicate it is in pain.

    Sorry, I misread it. You are right @carol5208 , there probably is some sort of injury, or something wrong in general. Please show pictures, even if he is sleeping, as he will not freak out and we can see without him getting stressed and possibly hurting him or making him weaker if he is ill of some sort.

    Ok, how much did you get them for? I'm just curious. If you don't want to answer that, that is okay.

    I would try spraying his foot with water to loosen it up. Do you have as sprayer bottle? If you put hot water in bottle, it will spray out warm. Test it out first. I have removed shed on feet before manually. You have to be very careful though and i would not do to a chameleon you just got who already is stressed in a new home.

    the excess shed is not coming off, he uses both legs when walking around and seems fine, but when he's not moving they just dangle for some reason. if sprayed both feet with warm water 5 times today.

    I would not worry about that little bit of skin.
