    Wild Chameleons SAFE

    As previously stated, they are probably the product of chameleon ranching at one time. I stumbled upon this Nation Geographic video on it yesterday.

    Can anyone identify this plant?

    Looks like Brazilian jasmine, I'm not sure about chameleon safety though.

    Picky eater - alternative feeders?

    Blue bottle flies and black soldier flies might trigger a feeding response. They're pretty active and get the chameleon's attention from buzzing around quickly. The black solider fly larva are also an ideal feeder insect.

    Black hornworms?

    I don't grow or use hornworms, so take this with a grain of salt. It might be an unhealthy hornworm. I know they're very susceptible to disease and I noticed some of the other ones are looking darker as well. It could be from too much humidity / overcrowding in the container. I'm sure someone...

    How long can an adult go without food?

    A friend of mine is a vet and he says this is a very common thing chameleon owners come to him for. His advice is to try using new or less common feeders to stimulated their appetite. Adult green banana roaches are supposedly great because of their bright color and the fact that they fly, but...

    Plants for 18x18x24 Glass Terrariums

    I'm pretty fond of scheffleras, vriesea bromeliads, and pothos vines. Pretty standard, but appealing and effective.

    TALL WIDE ENCLOSURE

    Building your own can be very cost effective and is probably the best way to go. Finding affordable enclosures outside of the typical size range is very luck based (craigslist ads, facebook BST pages, etc). Its really hard to mess up assuming you have the proper tools. I'd recommend a staple...

    Brainstorming and suggestions for new / uncommon feeder insect production on a large scale

    I saw that as well :L . Some people were saying they harvest wild larvae and keep them until they turn into dragonflies, but I'm not too keen on using wild feeders. Also some adults eat their own body-weight in 30 minutes, so feeding them would also be a huge problem.

    Brainstorming and suggestions for new / uncommon feeder insect production on a large scale

    Phasmids are REALLY cool, but the legal restrictions on them make them less than ideal as a product, unless there's a non-toxic species native to several states that I'm not familiar with.

    Brainstorming and suggestions for new / uncommon feeder insect production on a large scale

    If only I were handy with electrical work :/ I'd love to breed every kind of roach out there, but I forgot to mention I'm in Florida, so roach selection is limited to native and naturalized species unfortunately.

    Brainstorming and suggestions for new / uncommon feeder insect production on a large scale

    Dragonflies would be a really neat one to pull off. Definitely going to look into them. I never would have thought of aphids, but it does look like a used niche feeder. Based on my garden, I'm already a pro aphid breeder as well!

    Brainstorming and suggestions for new / uncommon feeder insect production on a large scale

    I forgot to mention that my problem with wax worms was that I could not find an efficient way to separate them from their media. They create so much silk that all their waste turns into a block that can't be sifted. Water separation did not work.

    Brainstorming and suggestions for new / uncommon feeder insect production on a large scale

    I run a small business producing feeder insects for local breeders, pet stores, and occasional online sales. I'm looking to expand into some insect species that are not typically found in pet stores. The chameleon community seems to use a very wide variety, so I'm coming to you guys to see what...
