The video shows a big chameleon on a plant moving upwards. Suddenly it gives birth to a baby chameleon which is shaped in a ball. It falls onto a leaf that is present below the chameleon. Slowly it uncurls into a small baby chameleon. Then it tries to climb onto another leaf but fails due to its small body. It does not fall off since chameleons have sticky feet. The video was posted by the Twitter handle Nature Is Scary with the simple caption, “Chameleon (sic).”
The video of the chameleon giving birth has raked in a lot of views with over 2.7 million views on Twitter alone. (This is based on the time of writing this article). Many people started commenting on the video asking many questions on how it is possible.
Since a chameleon is a reptile, people were expecting and egg to be hatched, but instead they saw a live baby chameleon coming out from the mother. The reason why this is happening is because the incubation happens inside the womb of the chameleon. After it is hatched, it is expelled out as seen in the video.
Many users were astonished as the baby chameleon was alive for 10 seconds and was already trying to climb another leaf. The chameleon might not be alive if it fell on the ground instead of the leaf.
