    bell pepper
    mustard greens
    collard greens
    dandilion leaves
    grapes (peeled)

    and i would slice them up, thin slices, and you can put them in a bowl, or on a leaf. wherever she can find them

    You can use dandelion greens, kale, collards, endive, escarole, mustard greens, slivers of carrot, squash, zucchini, sweet red pepper, sweet potato and a bit of fruit (apple, pear, melon, berries, etc.).

    I have never tried this yet, do the shoot them like crickets or just chew on them? Just wondering, I think I will give it a try. Will they naturally eat them or will it take some getting used to?

    My veiled chameleon just goes right up to it and takes a huge bite and chews it really well, I only can get mine to eat hibicus leaves but am going to try some grapes.

    14 years ago had a female veil that excaped on Camp Pendleton and lived in a eucalyptus tree for 10 months. Once she was recaptured her feces contained bugs, eucalyptus flowers, and mostly eucalyptus leaves. (i thought they were poisonous) Would not recommend it though.

    Ok well maybe it'll be good trying while she's still young, cause then she can have some variety in her diet other than mealworms and crickets.. Is there any worries of giving her too much fruit because of the vitamin A? What about oranges?

    & For sweat potato and stuff would i have to boil it first? Or give it too her raw?

    i caught mine eating pothos leaves, so i switched the plant out for a hibiscus. he doesnt eat fruits or veggies, just tears the hibiscus pland up. he likes the flowers too!
