If there’s one animal we’ve always got a plentiful supply of it’s Yemen Chameleons. Yemen Chameleons are desert chameleons from the Yemen and Saudi mountain regions. There are also known as Veiled Chameleons because of the large crest on their head.
Our breeding pair Leonard and Lucy have given us a steady supply of eggs ever since they were partnered together. Lucy will often lay up to 50 eggs at a time. The incubation period for Yemen Chameleons is very long compared to most other reptiles potentially being up to 8 months!
This current batch consisted of 48 eggs. Unfortunately 2 failed to hatch properly and were lost but the rest were in superb condition. They are now all living in a large 4′ x 3′ x 2′ vivarium where they enjoy catching small crickets and locusts.
They really cause a stir in the shop as they can sit virtually invisible hidden in the vivarium foliage. But, once a tub of food goes in the jungle literally springs to life with long tongues shooting in all directions. We’re very proud of our chameleons and recommend anybody to visit them!
