Remy Gravid??

Took my girl out for about 20 mins of some sun today. Soooo, I like to go on a Facebook chameleon page and just show off my chameleons, I will not date ask them any questions bc they can be hateful and very mean. I come here for all my questions bc any answer I have ever received has been kind, constructive, and very helpful. If someone doesn’t quite know the answer they tag someone that they know does know the answer. So I posted these photos of my lovely Remy on the FB page & someone said she was gravid. Now, i am currently going through the receptive stage of a Veiled cham and they are completely different looking when receptive. I have a photo of Panther Chams that show the receptive-gravid stages and I didn’t think she had ever shown receptive coloring... she is 8 months old, she doesn’t appear to be gravid in my opinion... these are normally her ‘not sure about what’s happening colors’ when I take her outside (normally only for 20 mins & I only hold her about 2x per month unless it is to get her from one cage to the other for cleaning)
So, my question is... does she look gravid? I’ll post recent photos of her inside her cage as well for comparison. && I have had a lay bin in her cage for about a month now, just to stay on the safe side. I have another thread about the lay bins in the cages with the help questionnaire answered as well.

Thanks !

Unfortunately I know nothing about gravid Chameleons, had an iguana lay 30 eggs on me once but that's here nor there, however I will say she is an absolute beauty. If I wasn't shell shocked from my iguana experience I'd likely get a female panther for those gorgeous muted pastel colors.

But it seems that you already have taken the steps and precautions to allow her to lay if so inclined so I wouldn't stress too much

The last pic almost looks like gravid colors yes. Shes not super big so its hard to tell. Ive seen gravid females get almost completely black so im not 100% sure. Ill tag someone with more experience with this.

Not gravid.
I didn’t think she was.... But I was not 100% sure. She hasn’t gotten any bigger in her belly area, she only puffed up because I walked her through the house to get outside, then when we got outside she slimmed back down again. I know she is the age that she very well could start to become receptive, but from what I’ve researched, I don’t think she had really shown the signs that I’ve read about.

She is lovely! I can’t wait to see her at her full grown adulthood. Her purples keep coming in more and more as time goes on. When I got her, I had no clue that they could lay eggs without a mate. ‍♀️ That was my fault for lack of research. I also did not know the gender of her when I got her, she was about 2 months & the vendor at Repticon was selling them cheaper simply because he didn’t know the gender of them. But I love her just the same as if she was a male... but Hammercy, it is a handful when you worry about egg laying. This too shall pass.
