Hello all!

New to this forum so apologies if I am missing information.
I recently purchased a panther chameleon from Petco (terrible I know). I’m sure you’re all aware of how bad the conditions are there and I just had to give her a bigger safer home.

She is my second chameleon. A panther Cham named Sabrina:) just recently had her first HUGE poop and I have not seen a poop this big so naturally I am concerned. I was hoping for some feedback and tips.

She is approximately 1 year old (according to petco). I tried to get as much info from them as I could. Has not layed any eggs yet, I’ve had her for just over 2 weeks.

She’s in a 16x16x30 screened cage enclosure with a UVB light and an automatic mister. If there’s any more info you need please let me know!
