Baby reptiles that are ready to emerge from their eggs and see the world for the first time do so by ‘pipping’ their way out. This is the process of breaking the shell of their eggs using their teeth – similar in the way baby birds use their beaks to escape. This little fellow couldn’t quite get the job done himself; luckily his home is in the Canvas Chameleon pet shop in Reading, Pennsylvania, where he received a bit of help getting out from his egg. The baby panther chameleon didn’t quite realize he had been born into the world yet and remained cozily snuggled up as if he was still inside of the egg. His look gives a rare glimpse to see just what reptiles look like within the confines of an egg. We’re glad to report he has since got accustomed to life outside the egg and his enjoying himself with the rest of his chameleon family.
