Cicadas have come to my town and I was just wondering if I could feed my Cham some, or a lot of cicadas because there are !!BILLIONS!!
ewwwwwwwwww !!!! I think I will pass on those-They are fairly nutritious though, people eat them as well.
I'm guessing ours will arrive any day now Bit nervous but glad to hear they are fully edible! Hope all my guys are up to the challenge.That is what brought me to this thread, just this morning I looked outside and they were everywhere, good thing this wont happen again for 17 years
Not only have they come to town, they have come to my HOUSE!!! They are all over it... I had some 32oz feeder cups, and went out yesterday and picked up 4-500 of them, but I only have 1 chameleon large enough to eat these things... I have way way too many. If I can't figure out something to do with them in next couple days i'll let them go. Wish there was a way to sell them, maybe make a couple bucks in this hobby/addiction rather than just spending every extra cent I have ( and some cents I don't have) on it...lolCicadas have come to my town and I was just wondering if I could feed my Cham some, or a lot of cicadas because there are !!BILLIONS!!
this sounds like great advice.here the best method to my knowledge that has worked for me....
go early in the morning/late at night and flashlight a bunch on tree trunks.
eventually you will find a non emerged one still in it pupa stage stuck to the tree, grab it and put it in a container. feed it as soon as possible.
this allows it to feed when its cleanest from environmental impurities, when its physically smallest, and when its softest and can't fly.
