    First of all, welcome to the boards!! I don't know that much about Chams, but I'm pretty sure that it isn't normal for any reptile to have it's tongue out all the time. It could be a couple of problems so if you could answer these questions, it would give us a better idea of what it could be!

    From the pictures your chameleon looks very healthy.

    Very cute.

    Have you ever seen his mouth close all the way or has it always been slightly open like that?
