Half dark half light

Last night I went to check on the chameleons b4 bed and I noticed Imelda was still dark but only on one side. I’ve seen this on other chameleon while awake but not asleep. I read an old thread on here that it could be from her eggs pushing on her nervous system and preventing color changing. So anyone advise?

Generally, I could be wrong, but generally this is due to the lighting around her. No its not because shes blending into the environment. But it's kind of like when you shine a flashlight on a chameleon how they get lighter, its how you find them in the wild if you're herlong at night. They do it naturally even if they're asleep. It could be an egg thing, but I'm guessing it's just a light thing.
