No actually, it looks dehydrated. Please fill out the "how to ask for help form" stickied at the top of the health clinic section so we can take a look at your husbandry and help adjust anything that might be incorrect.

I am concerned about dyhidration of my chameleon. Temperature at basking spot is around 90-97 and drops to 70-75 at night. Humidity is around 40% and I have monooson misting programd 30s every one hr. Plus, dripping on the top. Here are some pictures . Btw, He is very active though. I took him out twice and put him under the shower in bathroom for 5 minutes, but he didnt like it. So, i am confused, i dont know what else i can do? Thanks!

for now let me just start with the fact that you should spray at least 2 mins for 3 times a day. 90-97 is way too high for a juvenile cham, basking should be around 85. it will be a problem because it will dry out the moisture too fast and your cham will not be able to drink.

You should have made sure everything is correct before buying him.. at least it’s only been a couple hours and not days or weeks. Lower down the temp. It needs to be around 80-85. Get a different basking bulb if needed
it's been for weeks that he is basking at 90 degrees. That's because I was told in this forum to get the bulb that makes that much heat.
