They shouldn't be in with each other at all.
Chams are solitary animals and do not appreciate the company of others. You should split them up and leave them that way.

She should lay in around 30 days. Do you have a laying bin ready for her? It's best to put it in with her now so she can dig as soon as she feels she's ready.

Thanks for your comments I have a trio that used to live all alone but when i put them together to breed about 3 months ago then parted them all the did was stress out and when they were together they loved each other company. So im eyes MY CHAMS are better together.

cheers mate Some people only see in black and white and go by the books,Most time this is not always the best of the animals. I know my chams very well and if i thought it was best to keep them apart i would.

Well really Jame is right, you may think whatever you want about how they might feel and bla bla bla, it's just logic that moving a chameleon from one enclosure to another enclosure is going to stress them out. It's like you moving out of your home and being put into another one.... it's not stress free by any means.

They are solitary animals, if they "enjoyed" each others company so much they would be found in packs or pairs which certain specimens aren't like the yemen and the panther chameleons.

That's why the female is showing signs of aggression because they only go in contact with another chameleon when it is "breeding" season.

People believe what is in black and white because it is actually researched and many people spend a lot of time researching their animals and know how to keep them healthy and provide a safe and as natural as possible environment for them.
