Pennies from Heaven!
We take care of our silkworms with great care, Limey wants to eat them every day. He eats 7 small or 4 mediums or 2 large silkworms.
Keep them warm, at least 75 degrees (under a lightbulb or in a warm window).
Diesel is a lucky cham! Limey is a veiled from Florida Chams also, maybe they're related! Limey loves his free range time (a few times a week) and he's always sad to be caged again.
He will go to the top of his cage or hang on to the side, like he's trying to find a hole to escape. He's always...
Limey has distilled bottled water for his mister
but I use our well water, which my husband tests, in a spray bottle.
They are both used on an average of 50 per cent of the time. I'm usually home and I squirt him with the bottle. If I need to go somewhere or I'm really busy, I use the mister...
He didn't like the hornworms. However, I took the bulk of them to my favorite pet store with lots of reptiles and they fed them to the biggest lizards they had and it drew a crowd! The big lizards devoured them with relish.
Limey's almost 2 years old.
I find the Dubias interesting but my...
The supplier replied, they call them reverse zebras.
They say no one else has had trouble with them.
They will provide the regular and zebra silkworms in my next purchase.
I'm surprised that no one else here has seen the reverse zebras.
Thank you for replying. I have tried many different kinds of worms. He would starve himself for three days and then I would give him mealworms. I don't like to wait any longer than three days.
We do use the same supplier for all of the silkworms and other worms we've tried. This is the first...
Nutritional value and hardiness of gray vs. white silkworms has become a pressing issue in our home.
My chameleon, Limey, loves to eat silkworms. My latest batch was gray and he is not as interested. The gray worms seem mushy and not firm, with a weak grip rather than strong and quick, like the...
How about rotating the plants?
Limey (veiled Chameleon) has four live plants on the bottom of his cage. But not always the same four plants.
I rotate them to outside, when it's sunny and in the house, near windows; then back to Limey's cage. They're usually changed a couple times a month.
Up high so that the cham is above my head, that is my main concern.
Limey is in a main room with three huge windows on a tall rolling island. I open the shades all the way during the day. I roll him closest to the brightest window. When the weather's cold, I have large beach towels rolled on...
Your choice of animal for your report was exciting for you and s/he should have talked to you before deciding you were messing around.
I teach elementary students but I do know that if any student is passionate about what they're studying, we should let them fly!!
Share your love of chams and...
Limey is a 15 mo old veiled cham. He's always been quite healthy from my neurotic nellie husbandry. Of course he's shed many times before but this time it looked a little different. I made an appt with the vet because I've read too many posts about skin disorders going bad.
He was very good...
You made it possible for us to learn about mbd so we can keep our chams safe. Your posts are always Great! Thanks for all your efforts to help relieve others' suffering. I'm sad for you and excited to see the little ones coming.
Welcome Rave to the vegetarian world!
I've been a strict vegetarian for 32 years.
I never tell other people what to eat because I don't want anyone preaching to me about their own lifestyle, it's just not polite. But since you asked...
I am a peace activist and vegetarianism is my personal...
Have you considered using lightweight garden gloves and the super big tweezers accompanied by a bandana around your mouth and nose?
I'm not squeamish but I think having barriers between you and the creepy crawlies might help.
