Most likely needs a little time to settle in. She may be showing a little stress with the dark spots. Give her a few days to get used to her new surroundings and she should be fine. She may show some darker colors while basking at times as well. Welcome to the forums! Here is a great resource for veiled chameleons...

You will need to have plans for a laying bin (she will develop eggs even without a male cham nearby!). Here's the links to some info...

Best of luck with your new girl! :D
