What about this color?
Soon after the stripes where no longer visible.
How old is your cham? If it is a young cham with not a lot of colors the bright green might be his display colors. Black/Gray coloration is Stressed/Unhappy unless the Cham is cold and Basking. A good way I have noticed what my chams "Happy, Non Stressed" color is, is when he is sleeping. He is a good bright green with a little of his Yellow bars starting to show. He is only 4 months old right now so he doesnt have a lot of his adult coloration yet. My Picture in my Avatar is of him sleeping, or until I flashed the camera a few times. Those are the colors I am talking about.Jaeg said:So when your handling the chameleon and it is fairly bright green he is stressed. Will he be a dull green when he calms down?
When chameleons darken their color it is to bask and absorb sunlight/heat. When they lighten their color they deflect the light.voxxom said:When my chams are "happy" from what i know, they are a bright nice, green.
and when i hold my male, since hes still very cautious of my hand, he turns a dark green and puffs up.
and when they bask, i see they turn darker green, is that to absorb more heat?
