I don't see a spur on its back foot so I'm thinking its a female but some members with more experience will know better @Beman What do you think

WELCOME TO THE FORUM!
Cute little female!
Once a female nears sexual maturity, you need to control her diet and keep her basking temperature at 80F.
thank you!! i really couldnt tell with this being my first, i couldnt figure out if the little bump right past her tail was just her leg was just a part of her leg or the hemi penal thing lol was hoping for a male since this is my first cham, when do they near sexual maturity? im going to need a laying ben correct?

Here is a female at one month that I hatched. View attachment 292820


Yes, you will need a lay bin. Better to make it early so she is used to it. And it's better to be early than late. Be expecting her to lay between 6-12 months.
wow even smaller! shes so cute, i will look into it somemore, right now her cage is too small to fit a laying bin. im using a 16x16x30 cage, i was planning on getting a bigger one in a month or so as she got bigger, i currently have five plants in there that take up the bottom of the cage. how big should her bin be?

The bin should be 9 inches long. 9 inches wide. And 6 inches deep.
You have time for the bin, but you'll be surprised how fast she grows.
You will want a minimum of 2x2x4ft enclosure for her
okay thank you! we are going to build ber a bigger cage that takes up my shelf so she has enough room for a bin and more room to grow :) this is what it looks like right now
