    Calumma brevicornis hatch?

    This morning I noticed three baby chams inside one of the egg boxes--I pulled the box out, and saw that it was one of our Calumma brevicornis clutches. It was exciting, but the more I look at them, I wonder if I've somehow misidentified the eggs (not sure how that could happen). The reason...

    Calumma brevicornis eggs - part trois

    One of my female brevicornis laid a good-sized clutch of 32 eggs today. This is the largest clutch I've received from a brev, although it was the result of captive breeding so that is most certainly why. I bred a pair in early February, and she laid around six weeks later I believe, but her...

    Yellow brevicornis...

    I was feeding the chams today and I noticed one of my female brevs was a really vibrant yellow--they sure do change colors a lot, and I'm still learning what they mean (gravid, receptive, stressed, etc). I'm trying to map it out. But, she's beautiful.

    Calumma brevicornis eggs...

    My Calumma brevicornis locked...

    Today my pair of Calumma brevicornis locked, so I'm very pleased. Not the greatest picture quality, but I didn't want to disturb them too much. This photograph was near the end--it lasted about 20-30 minutes. Not bad.

    Madagascar new arrivals...rare!

    Here are some hand-picked chams that I was able to procure from a very recent Madagascar shipment. I took a few pictures as I was unpacking them this evening--I'll post better pictures once they are acclimated and better hydrated. Male O'Shaughnessy (sole male)... Female O'Shaughnessy...
