Is this a normal color for a male Cham?


New Member
So I came home today to my little love really dull colors and under his arms are white like he’s ashy . He’s been eating really well and was really bright colors yesterday and when I woke up to turn on his lamp . I want to make sure he’s okay . He has a misting machine that goes off ever 6 hours for 30 seconds is that enough?

Hi @Calcifer I see your other thread was on the 17th of August. As mentioned filling out husbandry form ASAP and adding pictures of your enclosure ( as the chameleon kit doesn't have the proper stuff and some things that does have can be harmful to your baby .
