Breeding techniques can be as varied as the number of species and the breeders. Each species has "quirks" and specific traits. Each breeder has preferences on techniques from whether the male is introduced to the female or vice versa and what medium and temperatures are used for incubation. I will describe and illustrate some of the more popular preferences and discuss when they are most appropriate.
The following photographs are from a mating of a pair of Chamaeleo chameleo calyptratus (veiled). The process described below is similar to most commonly kept oviparous (egg laying) species. If you are attempting to breed species not specifically described here I suggest you check the for your species. Many profiles include breeding tips.
The pictures below are babies in egg sacks from two ovoviviparous species. In ovoviviparous species the female carries eggs in her body until they hatch.
