okay so i have a juvenile veiled chameleon (almost 5 months) and ive noticed that her head is looking a bit dull (not necessarily grey but not as bright green as the rest of her body) im not sure if it has to do with her health or shedding or if this is just normal for the age so if someone could let me know that would be awesome:)

Did it shed? Or is this still ongoing? Looks ok. As they mature and shed the will show more variation in color. As they near a shed they will loose some vibrancy in color and appear dull. Hope this helps. Cool cham by the way.

Just keep in mind when they are young those really bright colors indicate stress as well. So if she is a bright solid green she may not want to be handled much or there could be an issue with her enclosure that is not making her happy.

I thought that bright green was good/calm for a veiled and stripes or darker color meant stress/discomfort.
