Well.. I know little about chameleons. I did a lot of research, and just bought this 7 inch long (with tail) male from reptilesncritters dot com.
I have officially named him 'Jen', after the male gelfling from 'The Dark Crystal'... but sometimes i like to call him Bobo, or Tuco, Alonzo, or Xerxes, Zell, or Ty Cobb.
He was trying to get out of the enclosure for the first half of yesterday... now he seems to have settled down, and isn't hiding so much. Just very curious.
I have no idea how old he is, but seems to be just over four inches in length minus the tail.. so 7 all together? Any ideas?
His color is green with gray... and i have seen no color changes.. is this normal?
Also... on the top of his back, maybe you can see... is a 'crusty' gray spot... not sure if its a skin shed extra or a fungal infection. He also looks kinda skinny. Maybe not?
I read about bowlegged chameleons and I'm not sure exactly what that means. His front legs never stick out to the side, although his back legs do sometimes...
Just curious if anyone with expertise can answer any of these questions:
general health, fungal, bowlegged, age... what size i should expect him to grow to... and about color changes.
