Hello I'm a new veiled chameleon owner and was just looking to see if this coloration is normal or could mean something. He's done it a couple tumes, mainly when I put crickets in his terrarium.
Look for the tarsal spurs on the back feet. If they arent there then you have a girl. It probably is a male I was just curious because I have not seen a color display like that with my male. Either way beautiful baby.I'm 90% sure he is a male I can check for sure when I get off work
For sure thanks for the infoNormal color pattern for a young chameleon. In my experience they will pop the black spots and stripes when nervous or feeling defensive. As they get older they will develop more drastic color patterns and ranges. My male will pop bright yellow, teals and dark greens lined in vivid black when he is angry.
Okay I'll try and get some better pictures later. There is a small hump between his toes like a small tarsal spur but it's very small. Could just be because he's still young but we shall see
