Temps, Diet and clutch size.


Chameleon Enthusiast
I have been keeping my female on a schedule of about 3 small dubia nymph ( 3lg cricket) sized meals three times a week, with max basking at 80f ambient max of 74f for over a year now. She is about 2 1/2 to 3 years old. Her first clutches were in the 50s+ and were becoming regular at about 3 to 4 months apart. Her first clutch after starting the new regime for about 3 months was I believe 40 or so on 9/2020. Her recent clutch 8/21 nearly a year apart. Also note temps went up about 3f on average and I added 1 med sized cricket to two of the weekly feedings. On this clutch there were 32 eggs with 7 of them being tiny eggs . So I am guessing 25 viable eggs. Not bad. I want to continue breeding but not produce tons of animals and wear out the female. If I can keep her at 20 to 25 babies a year. This is good. I am prepared to handle this.

Note the size difference. And yes same clutch 2 days from being laid.
