Swollen Tail

Hello everyone,
We noticed that Mowgli's tail was a little swollen towards his rump. I'm not sure if this is normal, but we took a few pictures to try to show it.

I know in a lot of other animal species their tail is a source of fat storage, so we're kind of anticipating this being nothing, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask just in case it's indicative of some bigger problem.

These next three pictures are shots we snapped at the same time we took the tail pictures, just so everyone can see if the little guy is healthy looking.

What a beautiful cham!!

It looks to me like his man parts are maturing <blush>. I have noticed the same with my boys as they pass the 6 month mark.

I agree to be maturing also how is his stool and how often ? And he is defiantly beautiful one where did you get him from
Glad to hear everything's good! He poops probably once every three days and they look totally normal (HUGE brown part with a nice white and slightly damp urate). He likes to poop on us when we take him out... hah. We got him from epic chameleons in October! We are SOOO happy with how his colors are turning out! He's about 7 months and we hope he's only going to get brighter! Do you guys think he will?
