How to breed Chameleons
Breeding chameleons can be easy, if you do it correctly and follow good chameleon husbandry rules.
To have healthy, beautiful chameleon babies you must provide adequate diet, supplements, and proper husbandry. This can add up in costs.
To be an ethical breeder, as in any animal that you breed, you should always strive for the healthiest, and most beautiful, while promoting standards of color and built that is proper for that breed.
You should breed chameleons form the same locale ( type of chameleon). You should not cross breed chameleons and if you do, it is your responsibility to disclose this and the baby chameleons should only be used as pets, not future breeders.
Chameleons are egg layers. The pregnant females digs a hole in dirt, sand, or vermiculite to lay her eggs.
The amount of eggs can be as few as 6 to as many as 30 or around that number.
The eggs need to be incubated properly and will hatch in 7 to 12 months.
Here is a picture of a female chameleon digging in preparation to lay her eggs. As you can see, she's watching me watching her. It's important to leave the female alone as she digs or else she may stop what she's doing and not lay the eggs. She could become egg bound and die in that case.
