That chameleon is female judging by what you have shown. Can you post a photo of it from the side that clearly shows the vent bump and tail?

Not a great pic as he/she is shedding at the moment and don't want to stress it by holding.. any ideas of the sex?

Because the area below the horn is curved rather than a sharper angle I suspect this is a female. I can not be certain with out comparing it to other clutch mates and even then there are some that could go either way until they are older. This only works well with xanths not T.j.j.s because even the girls get rostral horns.

Thanks so much for your help.

These are the pics of the mother and father.. will these help identify the sex ?

Also attached pics of the babies as babies.. don't know which is which as these are from the pet store..
