I'm not a huge fan of bugs either. I use gut loaded crickets (I can't do mealworms, but ask my son to do it) and I was going to try silkworms.
This is what I do for crickets. I keep all the crickets in one of those little critter cages with egg crate. Then when it's time for a feeding I...
sorry... I've posted several times with all her details and forgot to do it this time!
We got her 1 month ago. I don't know exactly how old she is, but we got her as a "baby" from a pet store.
right now she is in a glass aquarium - I know it's not the best but we ordered a screen one...
I have a baby veiled girl - Zaida. I've noticed that when she seems to be hunting she walks around and around in circles on the floor of the cage and she turns very patterned. She also holds her tail strait out. Is this normal.
I've heard that when Chams turn brown or patterned it means...
I'm not sure exactly how old she is. We got her on the 9th of April as a baby. We got her at a pet store and forgot to ask how old she was.
Also, yesterday she ate a total of 9 crickets and she drank also.
but she is just a baby? We just got her about 3 weeks ago. I really don't know how old she is but she's very tiny and she's about 2.5 inches (not including tail).
also, today she ate 3 crickets in the morning and drank some water, and then at about 6pm she ate 4 more...
it's complicated. She's a baby female so I guess she needs more. but I usually take her outside when it's sunny.
plus I give the crickets veggies, cricket food and quencher.
I really appreciate the feedback.
I've been worried about my baby girl veiled. She hasn't had much of an appetite and I rarely see her drink.
I was very happy b/c the day before yesterday she ate 5 crickets and took some water from the dropper I use.
But then yesterday she didn't eat anything! and I didn't see her drink...
We feed my baby veiled gut loaded crickets. But, actually I need a clarification on gut loading.
We have a cricket cage thing and I keep it stocked with cut veggies and cricket quencher (that yellow jelly stuff). Does that count as gut loading or do I have to make sure the crickets eat...
We had him for 10 days. We got him and his sister from a pet store (Zookeepers) in Austin, TX.
The vet told me he had a pretty bad respiratory infection. We were there for 2 hours yesterday. He was pretty stable, they gave him oxygen. But then when the vet went to give him fluids and...
Thanks everyone for info & support.
We'll miss him. We only knew him for a short time, but he touched our hearts.
And now we love chameleons
We still have his sister and she seems to be doing okay. Though we are keeping a close eye on her!
