my panther chameleon has been very well taken care of with all the proper vitamins, lighting, humidity, diet, etc etc

i can’t imagine what is causing him to have such a hard time shedding his tail and feet and side

he has been like this for about 2 weeks please help, how do i assist my chameleon? is there a safe way to help him remove this skin? is this normal? i just really don’t want him to get something amputated

thank you!

That area doesn't look ready to shed just yet. As they get older they tend to do partial sheds. I don't see any areas that look like they are being strangled. Pulling at the shed can hurt him and damage the scales creating scars that don't shed well.
I would double check your temperatures, humidity, supplement schedule and gut load for your feeders and then give it some more time for him to shed.

as mentioned above, he doesn't look ready, I would increase the humidity that may encourage him to shed
