Hi all, Ever since I was about 6/7 I’ve always wanted a chameleon. Long story short i’m 19 now and I finally got a juvenile female veiled :)

Her names Harley ( named after Harley Quinn )
She’s approximately 6 inches ( I have no clue how old she would be, maybe 5 months? ) Regardless I’ve been looking around and i know every cham is different so i hope this is what a happy chameleon looks like :) Have a good day!

Welcome to the forum and the life of a Chameleons servitude. Check the resource tab on this forum for the care sheets. The biggest reason is that with a female there are some specific needs your little one will need. One of which is planning for a lay box.

There is a ton of people here with endless knowledge so long as you accept it with an open mind.

Good luck and see you around.

By the way she looks beautiful!
