Hi all I'm new to this site I have a 4 month old veiled chameleon I was told he was male but starting to have doubts was wondering if you could help.

I don’t think this is a female... and it is definitely not 4 months old. It looks closer to a year old. The marking and thickness at the base of the tale tell me it’s a male. Although the spurs are not very prominent, this picture shows a spur. The casque is small and looks deformed, I would highly recommend a full husbandry review.

Oh, I guess I should do quite a bit more research then. That casque did look a little wonky, yes.

His casque and his spikes along his spine.

I would also get your husbandry checked out. Couldn't hurt to see what others have to say, could it?
