Very cool video. Some folks think roaches are pretty (not me), but they're all insects. Besides, it seems so much more natural when the chams eat something other than a standard feeder. I'm sure the variety is good for them too.
 
So much wing,so little meat. I didn't know they ever used their hands to hold bigger prey. Nice vid

I have seem him use his hands before, but I thought it was an accident. I'm beginning to think he really is using his hands to keep the big prey still, as he does it with big, male Dubia as well. I have one female who does the same thing.

Did he eat the wings too??!!

The good part is in the middle :)

Those wings were batting him to death until he bit down on it's head.
That shut it up!! :eek: ;)

Yep, he ate the entire thing. It's body was about the size of an adult Dubia. I was surprised that he wasn't at all intimidated by the size of it. It has a wingspan of at least 5-6 inches.
