    hornworms-is it worth the extra effort to breed?

    So when I got two containers of MD hornworms for my cham they have now doubled in size! Some reaching 4" Still some smaller ones to feed (feeding a full grown male veiled) Can he actually eat those big ones if I let him? Or would those be too much..... Thinking of setting up a breeding...

    Tongue Use Question

    I have a 10 month old male panther chameleon, and I have a question about his tongue. When he eats on his own, loose bugs in the cage, he occasionally misses, but otherwise, is fine. When I hand feed him, it seems like his tongue doesn't fully extend and when it does, it's not "sticky." That is...

    The anticipation is killing me!

    So I found one of my favorite this is to watch me little one eat! She has such a large cage for her size so I put in a lot of plants, vines, ect. And being free range fed in her cage it is so anticipating watching her go for it and the look in her eyes! Shes so determined! Moved her up to wax...

    Should I be feeding him more?

    So I have an 8- 1/2 year old male panther chameleon, and he has grown a lot since I got him, but I see pictures of chameleons around his age and they look so much bigger. I currently feed him between 12-14 1/2 to 3/4 inch crickets a day (the amount depends on the size), and about every other...

    Feeding video and tongue shooting problem

    I've noticed that Leo sometimes has a problem with his tongue shooting correctly. Here's a kinda funny video of him trying to get a dubia: http://youtu.be/m_m9biNsvzY As you can see, sometimes his tongue works fine, but certainly not all the time. Could this be related to something...

    Feeding Time issues

    So usually My chams light comes on about the time I'm getting ready for work or class and I drop some crickets in before I leave so he can hunt and eat and still have enough time to digest before lights out. I usually don't get home before lights out or if I do its usually not enough time so he...

    How many to feed/ what to gut load with

    I just received my dubia roaches yesterday in the mail and I am unsure as to how much to feed my guy. I received a starter colony with tons of different sized roaches but i am only used to giving him crickets. He is about 11months old and is a normal weight panther. I used to give him around...

    Play rather then eat

    Hey everyone, it's been a while. My guy is doing great and just had his first birthday. The reason I'm posting is my Cham keeps wanting out of the cage at every opportunity, that now it has made feeding difficult. When I open the door he comes up and will take interest in the food but only...

    Vailed Chameleons and mice

    I saw this video on youtube of a Cham eating a mouse. I had no idea that Cham's could even eat mice. Is their any health risks involved in feeding a cham a mammal?

    Darjeeling had a hard day....

    Okay, so I was feeding the chams some enrichment feeders today and Darjeeling was having a hard time of it. He did fine with the first one and seemed to love it. When I offered him the second one, he zeroed in on it super quick and ran down to get it. The bug kept sticking to my hand (it was...
