How does my new veiled chameleon look?

Looks good. Where did you get it? If you got a better picture of its back foot/feet, it'd be easier to determine, second picture is kinda blurry. But, I'd guess right now, female. But like I said, if you get a better picture of a back foot, it'd be easier to determine.

We need to see the back of the rear feet to tell. Male veileds have a little spur at the base between toes. And I think he/she looks healthy, that's what the babies at the pet shop I got my veiled from looked like. Just read up on everything to keep it healthy, because those babies now could be doing better than the way they are taken care of in that shop... The member Jannb has a great blog on her page for baby veiled chameleons. Pretty much covers everything you need.

I got him in a fish/reptile pet store that I work at called "Something's fishy" and it is in Owen Sound Ontario

Thanks, Is there anything special that I should know about her being in shed? any food? also should I take another pic just to make sure?
It wouldn't hurt for more pictures. For shedding, nothing else is needed, except maybe more humidity.

congrats on the pretty vieled. make sure the enclosure has enough time to air out and dry properly between mistings.. looks like he/she is in a exoterra or an aquarium. if it is not able to dry out between misting properly.....will cause fungus and possibly a ri. maybe i missed this in another posting but just to make sure you and your chameleon have great years ahead of you. please fill out the "how to ask for help" form.

ok so now i have got the bottom of my tank at 75-78 f at the top is 79F how is this
At that age, I would suggest it a little warmer. At this age, they use the heat to digest their food. I would suggest to get it a little warmer, to about 83-85 degrees.
