Hello, i found my cham changed her coloration after i put some fake branches (brown ones). Is this her normal coloration ? I know her stress is bright green + black dots, this doesnt looks like it. Maybe she is growing? She is 15 months old. Another question - sometimes she is opening her mouth, maybe because she is hot ? Nothing is changed in her cage.

Signs of gaping means She could be too hot. What’s her basking temperature and what are you acquiring these readings with? Also does she have a lay bin? I’m not an expert on this but she may be gravid and ready to lay eggs.

She has lay bin, but i know she is not ready to lay. Her basking temp is 31-32C . I am measuring with temp gun.

Okay you are going to want to lower that basking temperature down a bit. This is probably why she is gaping. Female veileds like it a little cooler for their basking spot. 85 degrees is what is Recomended. Also if you are using a infrared thermometer gun you want the basking branch to be a couple degrees cooler than 85 because you have to take into account the chameleons body will be closer to the bulb.

Awe she’s a cutie! I would likely say she is brighter because of the heat. Once you turn it down I’m sure she will go back to normal...also how much are you feeding her? She looks pretty round. If you feed daily I would cut back to every other day. More food=bigger clutches.
