Have you ever seen a baby chameleon hatch from its egg? We’ve seen kiwi chicks hatch, we’ve seen echidnas hatch, we’ve seen anacondas give birth underwater, and we’ve seen all sorts of babies, but we’d yet to see a chameleon hatch. Then we happened upon this 2008 video by YouTuber rmh355, via PBS Digital Studios’ Tumblr, and it’s pretty great.
