    hey guys! I’m new to the forum and new to chams. Just got my first veiled chameleon named Leonard. He’s been sleeping and eating fine, but his tail looks a little funny in this picture... he just woke up a few hours ago and his tail was completely curled so I don’t think it’s broken. Am I overreacting? I just want to address anything quickly before he really gets hurt or sick. Thanks!

    does the tail respond if you touch it?

    I have tried to handle him as little as possible, so I’m not sure. I’ll give that a try and get back to you.

    Yes it does respond when I touch it! Straightened itself right away :)

    In the "better feel safe than sorry" way do you got a better picture of him? in this angle he look a bit dehydrated too me ;) how is the poop? (color, texture)

    He probably was. My cage got flooded with a new dripper, so I had to dry it out and let it sit for a while. Just misted him a few hours ago.

    Poop is regular color and texture. Urate is white and slimy.
