my question is this- how much do you guys dubia eat?
I have about 100 i ordered to start a colony, had them about a month and they seem to be producing, i havent even had any deaths. my concern is that they dont seem to eat near enough i would think lots of roaches would devour food.
i advise the cricket crack, http://tikitikireptiles.com/products.php?id=16; i believe in having crickets eat good stuff and keep it in their bellys constantly. i add in veges regularly with this for the dry food. but i guess i dont nessasarly "gutload" either.
Ive introduced roaches to my 8month old vieled.
Question: He will only eat 1-2 out of my hand and i know thats not enough, he will then eat crickets or hornworms after. And he wont touch them at all in his cup. Any tricks here? i want to make roaches his main food but eating only a few a day...
roach colonies are easy, and affordable to start out. check on the sales list on these forums can get some or tikitiki in sponsers sells them. hopefully crickets work out for ya, but roaches are a good alternative and better for your cham
it is hard to say the ambient tempature in the basking spot, thermostats dont really check them. But IMO(which isnt prof just have a veiled myself) the basking spot may not be warm enough so he wants to get dark for more heat. It would be best if you could get a heat...
could be a shed soon(the white), which can make the dull colors as well, also when vieleds bask the get a bit darker. Hard to tell his feelings really your doin the right thing asking here! I agree with the sunbath take him outside! rain might make him drink ;)
are you sure about the age? loooks realy small maybe its just the picture making it that way. looks like the size of my 7month old. This is a great place to learn all you need hope you can get him to eat, or drink which is more important, you could try a shower, not hardly warm to your skin and...
Id go with mistking 100% martys a great guy will help you out if you need it. and the systems are much better IMO
aquazamp is also a great one so ihear! i just wouldnt go with the big name like exoterra(cheap stuff imo)
panacur is a dewormer, you can buy it at repile stores(least the one near me) its a dewormer used for many animals, chams too. Ive used it before and worked(my vet told me it would be a cheaper way).
Im not saying to not call your vet but look it up, and it has worked for me.
dont put them directly in the water make it where the mist bounces off a wall or something, and not really warm they are cold blooded remember so warm to us is hot just make it like skin temp to you and should be ok. where i live the clorine seems fine have not come across any problems ever.
depends on a lot, uvb doesn't really go thru glass well so if its a window then it doesn't do much, then screen blocks it out again(a little so multiple screens=more), i would stick with the uvb bulb and supplement the d3 3x a month, you'll need regular calcium without d3 tho for most feedings.
its a controversy animals eat soil to get minerals they are missing, as long as theres no big clumps or bark chunks or small rocks she can get should be fine. Vields are known for eating plants/soil/anything they can get i dont know what type you have but. but you will probably get mixed...
