Im pretty sure the breeder i got my chameleon from lied about his age. When i got my chameleon the breeder said he was 6 months old. I’ve had him for almost for 2 months and so tjat would make him 8 months and he’s really small. I was looking at jannb pictures of his chameleon name hank and my chameleon looks just like him. In the photo i put up of hank (jannb’s chameleon) he was only 3 months old and thats what my chameleon looks like.

I could envision a scruple-challenged breeder representing a 2 to 2.5 month old cham as being 3 months, but I can't figure why anyone would misrepresent a cham as being six months. Just doesn't make sense to me. 🤷‍♂️

That said, individuals can grow at different rates. I was given a choice between 2 from the same clutch & hatch date, and one was almost twice the size of the other. They can also go through growth spurts at different times.

To my eyes, the 2 pics with the hand are better because they give some frame of reference, except that IDK the size of the hand. Pics next to a ruler or some other recognizable reference might be better to gauge your little guy's size. ;)

As long as he's healthy (and he appears to be so), is there some particular reason his size and/or age matter? :unsure:
