So I have a panther chameleon and she is about 6-7 months old. she has been acting very weird. she has stopped eating and drinking, she is very restless, she is extremely les active then usual, she just lies on the same branch all day, she is getting a little bit bigger but her skin is getting very loose and she is like full orange with just a little bit of beige witch I was told that those are the colors she will show when she is ready to mate but when ever I bring my male close to her she gets very angry and tries to attack him. I was very worried so I took her to the vet and she x-rayed her but we did not see any eggs so I was very curious as to what is wrong? any and all help is very much appreciated thanks

Hmm... Possibly the terrible teens? Sometimes they get moody, but that is more with veiled chams, not panthers. Try taking her outside in some natural sunlight. Check your setup and care, temps, humidity, supplements, etc. Also check to see if she has a clear view of another cham. Chams hate, they hate all other chameleons...for no reason. So take any others out of sight. I had a veiled that, although he couldn't see the other males in the area, he knew they were there. He was always pissed. Check your stuff, do the real sunlight thing, wait and be patient. It seems your are on the ball, especially since you vet-checked for eggy-weggies. Good luck dude, may the force be with you.
