Has anyone studied what insects specifically are available to panther chameleons in the wild? I have my panther book and it goes into some detail about prey preference between grasshoppers and crickets. I'm pretty sure that the study determined that the chameleons would basically alternate between the two. Here's what I was thinking about. How often do Panther Chameleons eat crickets in the wild? Crickets seem to prefer the same type of environment as cockroaches (dark and under cover) and I can't really see them wandering into the trees or grass tops to get eaten. It seems to me like the most likely insects in the elevation range of the chameleon would be either live plant eaters or predator insects. Cockroaches and crickets feed on dead and decaying matter generally right? I'd like to know exactly what insects a wild Panther would eat over the course of a day. It would be nice if you could provide a Panther with native species of common insects.
