howdy everyone so about 3 months ago i purchased a female jacksons chameleon from a local reptile shop 5 days later i have 32 baby chams...
(also think she's pregnant now she's huge)

the reptile shop told me she had been with a male the week before i got her but they had only had her for in their shop for about 2 weeks

im so confused about how breeding works because their literally living sperm banks ahaha
so my question is how many more clutches can she have? she was with a male while she was pregnant can she still get sperm from another cham while she's currently pregnant?
sorry if that made no sense lol

If she was that close to delivery it is unlikely she would have been receptive. They seem to be most receptive a short time after giving birth. You will likley see her have 2 more clutches but 3 are possible. If she just passes slugs then more births are unlikely without another mating.
