OMG! Two out of four panther chameleon eggs I’ve been incubating since September 12, 2018 hatched today! I obtained them from @Matt Vanilla Gorilla. I’m so excited! Thanks, Matt! The remaining two look viable, so hoping for 4 out of 4!

I'm embarassed to say I'm a little unprepared. I have access to lots of live food, starting them with flightless fruit flies. Not sure the best conditions temp/light/humidity... So I'm googling and searching forums. If anyone has good recommendations, please post advice or links! I've never had a chameleon at under 3 months before.

Congradulations! I am very proud of you!
Thank you, Matt! Please PM me if you have any tips for raising babies, or good links! So far they are looking pretty healthy and active. I don't think the fourth egg is viable. I'll post a picture tomorrow. It is larger than the others, softer shelled, not shrunken or sweating.

As long as the egg is still white just leave it. All mine are taking longer then normal as well. You just have to be patient.

Babies this morning, when the lights came on. I’m currently feeding flighted and flightless fruit files, but will be adding tiny hornworms and bean beetles. I’m also working on getting more live plants today in the Exo-Terra enclosure.

@Matt Vanilla Gorilla the last unhatched egg, next to a hatched egg is circled in the photo below. Does it look viable to you?

My phone camera isn’t very good, but here are the four babies (hatched 8/12 to 8/19) in my attempt at a bin setup. It's hard to get them all in one shot, but the last, sideways pic has all four. So far they seem active and alert, eating and pooping. I’m still playing around with the setup. Thanks for all the help, @Matt Vanilla Gorilla, and all the support from the rest of you in the CF community!
