Hi! This is my baby veiled chameleon, Dino! I was told that Dino was a male but I want to be 100% there’s a tiny bump near its tail and gets pretty colorful when basking or when in a grumpy mood, please help? Also, he’s only a few weeks old if that helps

I think I agree with Mike, He looks like a she. With veiled chameleons the males will have a pronounced spur sticking out of the back feet.

Typically, you can tell the sex of a veiled chameleon at that age. Your Cham looks to be over a month as well. Prob at least 2 months. Hopefully other keepers will chime in and give their input as well.

The more research I’m doing the more my chameleon seems like a male though, some are born without spurs and Dino happens to be reeeeallly territorial, and kind of hates handling, and is also growing really super fast. I’m not sure if this info helps but that’s what I’m getting, also the bulge on the tail too?

Yeah.. now I’m just nervous about a girl veiled becoming eggbound though... is there anything I can do to stop Dino from laying eggs?
