Is a plastic cup the best thing to use to put feeders in or can they climb up that too? I'm hoping to use something they can't get out of.
I have thought of using those cups but I am afraid they could scrape their tongue. Have you had any issues using it?And as I was posting this, I took out the white cup to prepare for feeding. He has since moved up to the rock ledge and is hovering over it like he knows its coming...
hehe! i don't feel so bad now for hoarding every plastic container I can get my hands on!You can use really anything that is opaque. I will recycle Chinese take-out containers, yogurt or butter containers, etc. Anything I have that is keepable I will wash and hold on to, because I feel like I always need plastic containers for my chameleons (whether to cupfeed, dust, etc.)
Crickets, some roaches, and worms will not climb out of anything smooth plastic. Some roach species will, but things like dubia/discoid roaches, crickets, superworms, hornworms, and whatnot will not climb out.
The rock is made of styrofoam. It's a little coarse but I would say it is less abrasive then the screen of my cage. I don't feel it would be dangerous. And the cup is plastic so no issue there.I have thought of using those cups but I am afraid they could scrape their tongue. Have you had any issues using it?
