I found Trixie shedding this afternoon for the first time since I've had her. I was starting to get a little worried since I've had her for over a month. Here are the pics.

Awww....she's adorable and sooo tiny!
I weighed her this morning and again this afternoon when I got her out to take pictures. She weighed 1.14g this morning and 1.16g in the afternoon. That's a little down from the 1.19g she was a week ago, but hopefully it's because she was getting ready to shed.

She looks great, really colorful. This clutch started hatching on 5-27-2010.


She is a Cameroon Sailfin chameleon (Triceros montium). She's about 14 weeks old.
I believe Cameroon Sail-fin Chameleon refers to Tr. Cristatus, Tr. Montium is usually called the "Two-horned Mountain Chameleon".

Although T. cristatus is sometimes called a Sailfin chameleon, I think the more appropriate common name is Crested chameleon. T. montium is commonly called the Cameroon Sailfin chameleon. The Crested chameleon isn't native to just Cameroon, so the Cameroon in Cameroon Sailfin chameleon tells you it's T. montium.
