My Dino weighed 160 grams at the vet. I believe he is 6 to 7 inches from nose to vent. He looks pretty good. I am a little unsure about his age. I bought him from Backwater reptiles, and they said he was 6 to 8 months old. So that makes him about 20 Months! He didn't look that old, as he was small. Any help? Just curious. Thanks, Julie

Thought it would be nice to see this data represented graphically, so I went ahead and made it into a line graph! You can really see the fast growth pattern early on and the plateau later on this way

according to that table, Dino is super small.

Honestly, you can't trust Backwater Reptiles to tell you pretty much any accurate information when it comes to age lol (or most other things tbh :cautious:). I bet your cham is younger than they told you by several months. Also, different chameleons have dramatically different weights even at the same age. There are many factors at play, all of which combine together to make an individual cham's weight

Don’t worry I am a new Cham owner and my Cham was the smallest of the clutch two months from then he is 4 months old and is a monster at 80 grams and 5.5 to 6.5 inches snout to vent
