Since our Chams can eat other lizards, would you be able to put a backyard anole lizard in their enclosure and see what happens? I’m not planning to do it just wondering.
What if he bought a anole from a pet store and the Anole is clean of parasites and healthy would the chameleon be good for the go
Sound about right but ama try to feed my Cham somthing difrent lol am sure he’ll find it interesting and I got pet insurance lolI wouldn't assume its clear of parasites because it came from the pet store - the pet store is probably ground zero for parasite transmission. Chameleons have been observed to eat other small lizards and birds in the wild so its certainly edible.
I purchase anoles/geckos from mealworms.com to use as feeders occasionally. My chameleon doesn’t eat them right away. They’ll last months sometimes, but eventually they disappear. I assume he got hungry enough. I know I run the risk of parasites, but they are a “feeder” company, and my chameleon is very robust and healthy. I think it’s worth the risk for myself, but wild feeders are a different risk.
I've wondered about them. They say they're B grade, so I was hesitant to try them out. How many times have you done this?
Off topic but here in PA I have salamanders that live with my chameleon outside lol. Everyday they're there.
It's funny to think about it like this!
