Okay, I've got a Veiled chameleon that's approximately 4 months old. Before getting my Veiled, I'd only had experience with pygmy chameleons, and before that I'd never had any reptile ever. So obviously my experience is very limited with chameleons. I have had very good luck with my pygmies, even to the point where eggs have hatched and I now have 2 baby pygmies.
But my question is in regards to my Veiled. I've been "winging it" since I got Ziggy (my Veiled) and feeding him a few crickets once a day, dusting them each time I feed. Thing is, Ziggy is growing and he's twice the size he was when I got him. I need to know if I should be feeding him more, and more than once a day.
Right now I feed him about noon time and usually give him 4-5 small to medium crickets. I've just gotten more medium ones because I think Ziggy is getting too big for the small size.
Should I be giving Ziggy a 2nd feeding later in the day or leave it as is? Also, at what age do I stop dusting every feeding, or is that something that I will continue to do until he's more than a year old?
Sorry to be so ignorant. I did actually buy a book, but it was very general in the information it provided, besides I would much rather get advice from people who actually have experience with chameleons.
Thanks in advance.
