    My veiled laid her eggs! After 14 hours and a nearly 2 feet deep tunnel, she laid a small clutch of 20 eggs. Here are a few pics. Sorry for the very poor quality of them :( , there under poor lighting and nearly dead batteries.

    Here she is digging the nesting tunnel.

    The entrance to the tunnel.

    After she emerged from laying, and filling in the hole.

    Now here are the 20 eggs she laid. You can barely make them out in this pic, sorry.

    Poor picture quality doesn't mean a thing! I would have been happy with old black and white!
    I'm envious!:p

    Wow I had no idea chameleons dug tunnels like that. What kind of substrate do you use? And those babies are going to be ridiculously cute!:)

    Thank you everyone :)

    I will most definitely do so.

    The laying substrate I use is potting soil (without the addiitives and chemicals) and sand. I find that the mixture of the 2 holds together better when dug down into.

    do chameleons like to dig?

    because I have one but nobody said anything about them digging or is it only for eggs that they dig? :confused::confused:

    As far as I know chams only dig to lay eggs. Their hands are adapted to living on small twigs and vines, not flat surfaces.
