Current Problem
This panther is one of the nice chameleons in my friends pet store. My friend got it when it was only 2 months old. He is a good chameleon keeper and everything was great until 1 month ago, the strange lump appeared without bad omen. The lump is hard but a bit softer than bone. Besides the lump, the panther is still acting normal just like nothing was happened.
Since there are no skilled lizard veterinarians around, I hope if there is anyone can give us some suggestions! Thank you so much! Please the pictures attached:)

I am going to respond to this thread in order to bump it up to the top of the thread posts in hopes one of our vets will see it. Anytime you have a growth, whether it be on a human or animal, lets face it, it is of concern until it is diagnosed. They will probably tell you the same thing. Good luck with your guy.
