it seems normal - your male veiled is becoming territorial becasue of the coming or age - personnaly, i have not handled my veiled in nearly 1.5 years because he is very territorial - and the drop in appitite is normal - my veiled eats every 2 days but when he eats, he eats a ton!
hope this helps

:Hello All,

:My male veiled cham is getting close to a year old, he weighs about 130 grams and has become less scoial in the past 2-3 weeks. This is accompanied by a drop in appetite. He once ate as much as I'd give him everyday. Now he seems to eat every 2-3 days.

:This is my first cham. Does this sound normal or is it a likely sign of trouble?

:Thank you,

:Brian
