Seconds-Old Baby Chameleon Doesn’t Realize He’s Out Of His Egg

These amazing photos of a baby panther chameleon (Furcifer pardalis) who doesn’t know he’s been born yet give us a unique insight into how these beautiful reptiles look when still in the egg. Canvas Chameleon, a pet shop and breeder in Reading, Pennsylvania, explained that this baby chameleon had to be helped out of his egg because he had failed to ‘pip’ properly. ‘Pipping’ is when reptiles or birds use their egg teeth to break out of their shells. The chameleon is now safe and comfortable with the rest of his brothers and sisters!
