I have a male, veiled baby chameleon (around 1 month old) and he's been starting to eat more than usual but he still looks pretty skinny to me so i wanted to ask what's a healthy weight for a baby chameleon like him?

How often and how much do you feed him?

@NashansCamos I feed him 2-3 times a day, I've been feeding him baby crickets and mealworms occasionly he'll eat mint and other veggies but not very often i couldn't give you an exact number as to how many he eats daily but around 6-10 mealworms.

Vields are supposed to look long and skinny. If he starts to look fat your over feeding him. And as a baby I wouldn’t worry about weight. He will stop receiving food when’s he’s full. Well at least mine does when’s he’s full. Good luck!

Mint can block calcium absorption you should consider a different green veggie. Green beans perhaps.
Yes of course i don't only feed him mint I've only gave him a tiny bit of mint so far as i haven't found actual information about it being toxic for them (in small quantities) I'll definitely keep that in mind though and try to stop giving him it all together.
