Overweight Chameleons


Avid Member
Is it possible for someone to post pictures of overweight chameleons, with an explanation of how to tell?

For panthers, I know the pads on the top of the head are good indicators, but there is no reference point that I can find on the forums for comparison.

I appreciate any help y'all can provide, and I believe it wil be useful to the community.

One method I've used is to look at the base of their tail. The cross section of the tail should be oval from top to bottom, not completely round. If it's completely round your cham could be a bit chunky! Using the casque only can be tricky as it is also an indicator of proper hydration.
