Hey guys, finally got around to uploading some videos of my cham. Shes a baby veiled named Yoshi in a 4 foot flexarium. Due to the size of the cham I hand feed her crickets, baby silkworms, phoenix worms and fruit flies. I've herd its pretty rare to see a cham this comfortable around owner so i thought you guys would enjoy and let me know what you guys think!


Heres the link to my youtube channel with the videos (ps also check out the leopard gecko set up):

Must be nice. Im jealous....haha.

i rarely see waldo, my cham, eat or drink. Although, i try not to put too much attention/stress on him. I may dump about 15 crickets a day into his cage and there are always about 5-6 left by the time he is done for the night, hiding and asleep.

Usually for him its one cricket...chomp it down...bask and go hide. then I dont see him eat the rest of the day.

Id love to be able to hold him like that and watch him eat straight from a bowl

Just make sure that you put the crickets in like a plastic cup vs like foam or paper so that the crickets slip and can't get a good enough grip. Be careful with clear cups, you don't want your cham to bruise their toungue

Will they not try to just hope right out of the cup?

Its all relative to the size of the chameleon. If the chameleon is small use a small cup since the crickets should be small, slightly deeper cups can be used for bigger crickets for slightly bigger chams. Remember not all chameleons can be hand fed but its always worth a shot. Lets you inspect them daily a healthy pet!
