I have 84 freshly laid eggs and wonder whether I must cancel my summer holiday trip in August or not. It all depends on the hatching time of our first chameleon babies. Now, some sources say the incubation time is 150 to 180 days, some say it is 6 to 9 months (equals 180 to 275 days) and some say it depends on the temperature in the incubator. Some say 26 C (80 F) is right, some say it must be 29 C (84 F). Although I am willing to stay at home in summer if necessary I wonder - can the hatching date be really controlled by the breeder, by increasing or decreasing the temperature? If you have successfully bred veiled chams can you please tell me your incubation periods and temperatures?
