I have a two month old veilied chameleon and there has been nothing out of the norm till today. While I was putting crickets inside the cage, my chameleon turned all bloated and had brown dots all over him. Is this normal or should I be worried?
I wouldn't worry about it until you see something else that arrises. When situations like this happen, grab a camera, a notepad and pen, and document the event. Date it and file it for use in the future, could be a clue or sign of something else- Buuut its likely nothing, just something he saw and didn't like.
My baby veiled does that. She only displays those spots when I open her cage and either feed her or try and handle her. She puffs up and displays dark spots. As soon as I close the cage again, she goes back to normal. So I'm assuming it's just a defense or aggressive behavioral thing. I dont' think it's anything to worry about.
