Small female panther egg laying!?

Hi all

I need some advice, quite urgent actualy.

Well my female ambanja panther chameleon is 6 months old and is 8cm snout to vent thats about 3.2inches.

I want to know if that is small for a female panther? She eats alot, has a spot lamp and goes out in the sun every 2 days otherwise everyday.

Is that size (3.2 inches) small for her age?

And now my worry is that, since she is about the age of sexual maturity - will she lay infertile eggs soon despite her size?

Please let me know if any of this is actualy a cause for concern, what should I do?

Please let me know if you have some advice for me.

Thanks

Yes she could lay an infertile clutch any time. Don't worry, get a laying bin in her cage and she will do the rest. Use a container - like a bucket or flower pot- with some organic soil, or just make sure the soil has no chemicals in it. Mix half soil & half play sand. Make sure the soil/sand is wet so it will hold a tunnel without falling in. Not to wet. Dig a hole so she gets the idea and put the bin in her cage. Then hope she is not carrying infertile eggs.

Thanks laurie will do that tomorrow.
How far off is she from the average full grown female panther?

She is 6 months old and has not been bred, I wouldnt breed her so early.
