Male or female?


New Member

Hello all! I need some help identifying the sex of my chameleon! I’ve had my chameleon for a little over a year now, so he/she is a little over a year old I believe. These are the best pictures I can take, because my chameleon is scared of me and won’t let me get very close when they’re awake ): if you’ve got any tips on how to help with that, too, I’d appreciate it! Thank you!!

I’m seeing a hammock type thing in the first picture, remove it. Chameleons don’t really use them and there nails can get stuck in the stitching easily. Do you know about females laying eggs and correct husbandry to lower their clutches?
