Jackson's Chameleon Babies

I'm a DADDY!!!!

That being said, I don't know anything about raising/keeping baby Jackson's...I really wasn't expecting it. By the looks of it, there are four babies walking around the cage and a few more egg sacks laying around.

I fortunately have two enclosures set up, so I have the babies in the smaller cage right now.

Any tips/help?!?

Thank you

Welcome to CF!

This happens often actually.

I can direct you to jdog1027's video, he had the same thing happen.

It was smart to remove the babies! Make sure you get them ALL!

Help them out of the sacs if they dont come out, they may still live.

Youll need small feeders, fruit flies preferably.

ARE fruit flies ideal for neonates fresh out? are 1/8 th crickets ok or should it be pinheads?

Pinheads and fruit flies are fine. Especially with smaller babies like jacksons.

Thanks for the advice, the pet store near my house only had the pinhead crickets, but the babies are eating them up

The key to keeping baby Jacksons alive is to make sure they are well hydrated. Make sure you also gutload the crickets before feeding them off.

I completely agree. My female gave birth to 12 babies nearly 3 months ago now and so far all 12 are healthy and thriving. Hydrate, hydrate, gutload, hydrate!

Congrats!! I never start with pinheads and Ive had some species that are really small at birth. Ive always just started with the 1/8 inch. Of course different places have different ideas on what the sizes are.

One thing they will like is humidity but where a lot of people go wrong, I think, is they have stagnant humidity which can cause multiple problems. You want good airflow with your humidity. I think its best to be on the lower side and mist more often than to have the stagnant humidity.

Hope they do well for you!!
