My Chameleon is a Juvenile, and my mom got these for me cause she doesn’t want actual insects unless you need need them. I’m trying to convince her otherwise. But until then are these safe for them to eat and should I still sprinkling calcium powder on them?

They need live insects. No questions. Either convince her or rehome your chameleon, they wont eat pellets. They need the movement of live insects.

If you even thought this was okay i'm assuming you need your husbandry reviewed (excuse my blunt tone, its just the truth hun) . Fill this out please! :

Chameleon Info:
  • Your Chameleon - The species, sex, and age of your chameleon. How long has it been in your care?
  • Handling - How often do you handle your chameleon?
  • Feeding - What are you feeding your cham? What amount? What is the schedule? How are you gut-loading your feeders?
  • Supplements - What brand and type of calcium and vitamin products are you dusting your feeders with and what is the schedule?
  • Watering - What kind of watering technique do you use? How often and how long to you mist? Do you see your chameleon drinking?
  • Fecal Description - Briefly note colors and consistency from recent droppings. Has this chameleon ever been tested for parasites?
  • History - Any previous information about your cham that might be useful to others when trying to help you.
Cage Info:
  • Cage Type - Describe your cage (Glass, Screen, Combo?) What are the dimensions?
  • Lighting - What brand, model, and types of lighting are you using? What is your daily lighting schedule?
  • Temperature - What temp range have you created (cage floor to basking spot)? Lowest overnight temp? How do you measure these temps?
  • Humidity - What are your humidity levels? How are you creating and maintaining these levels? What do you use to measure humidity?
  • Plants - Are you using live plants? If so, what kind?
  • Placement - Where is your cage located? Is it near any fans, air vents, or high traffic areas? At what height is the top of the cage relative to your room floor?
  • Location - Where are you geographically located?
Current Problem - The current problem you are concerned about.

Please Note:
  1. The more details you provide the better and more accurate help you will receive.
  2. Photos can be very helpful.
edit-- Do you even have your chameleon yet? I just Read through your first thread.. apparently not im assuming? At least you've got time to convince your mom. If you are getting him/her soon I hope you have already started on their enclosure?

Thanks for the information, I was asking before I actually came into ownership on the chameleon I’m going to get. Just double checking on everything. Appreciate the help!

Haha yes I just saw your other thread! You could still fill out the cage part-- unless you haven't set up the cage yet? when do you plan on buying your little friend?
