I need some advice for cup feeding I think he is scared of it
I think he’s scared of the crickets too
Can you upload a picture of the cup and where it is in the cage? He shouldn't be afraid of crickets.
Put your cup/feeder just below his basking spot with a treat or two in it. Something that he finds irresistible like a hornworm and he should get the idea. I've gotten to the point now where Lucky goes over to his cup each morning and takes a look. I mix up his feedings from cup, hand and free ranging, so that he's familiar with all three.
You may need smaller crickets, if any food is too big, they will shy away from the challenge.
Will he eat cut thing because he just a baby
Are mealworms good for him he a juvenile
phoenix worms, aka black soldier fly larvae ?
Mealworms are not good staple in a chameleon's diet. They can be used for variety, but nothing else. They have a high ratio of chitin to meat, which is not good for tender chameleon tummies. They can cause impaction. By cut things, do you mean insects that are no longer alive because they have had their head/mandibles cut off?
Hi Jinkins, has your chameleon eaten at all yet? Your last post about him not eating was made a week ago and I'm getting concerned for your little guy! It is not normal for a juvenile to not have an appetite. Can you please post some new pictures of him and his enclosure?
Like I said above, and @Syreptyon said the same thing, the pictures are going to be helpful. Something's just not quite right.
He has eaten three crickets the other day and 1 that I know of yesterday
What size crickets are you trying to feed her?
edit: also, are you still using the red solo cup? That red colored cup is likely not helping your situation. It is one of the trigger colors for chams.
phoenix worms ? they r small n healthy option
Good that he ate a few, at least. I second the phoenix worm suggestion. Really healthy, small option
Small to medium crickets and I changed the cup to clear
