Yeah must have just been the new plants and light that freak him out a bit, coz he's back to his old self now... eating like crazy... and his colours are also a bit better... cool stuff, thanks guys.

hmmm, yeah my chameleon did the same thing after I moved his enclosure and added new plants etc... and I was stressing as much as teh chameleon I reckon.
But he came right eventually. Fingers crossed your chameleon comes right soon, I'm sure she will. ;)

Cheers thank you.
hmmm, thats a good question... I'm trying to guestimate here... flip, haha, not sure I'll work it out when I get home.
Here's 2 pics that I found on my PC that were taken a few months back, he's on my hand so that can be used as a scale... he hasnt got too much bigger since then really.

He is a nice size there Clay, also very pretty!!! How old is he?

I have a female that is about 15+cm from the tip of her mouth to her vent, well atleast thats what it was last time I checked, I also had a huge male, but unfortunatly he had a miss understanding with the gardener when he was in his out door enclosure,

I think that these have got to be one of the best chams out, they are dam pretty,and get to a nice size, and have awsome personalities.

I wil try get some pics of her just now,
She dosent look like clays, her colour depends on her mood, but mainly she is green, with purple and white stripes but i have yet to get a pic of her that showes her colour props,
Mine dosent seem to get scared, she gets angry and goes dark purplely green with all sorts of spots on her and stripes, but i dont think she has deff colours with regards her moods as I have seen her bright green with white spots and she was happy and then a normall green that is ment to be seen as happy but she wass pissed off as hell and hissing and gaping,
I also cant really handle her, she is EVIL most of the time, my male was an angle on the other hand,

hhmmm, he's 10 months old.
When I got him he was green in colour... then turned more brown.
Now he's mostly lime yellow and sometimes very dark green bands... and sometimes he looks almost orange and almost looks like tiny blue spots.
yeah, interesting critters.
