I was just wondering that if you cup feed a chameleon all the time, would the chameleon get use to eating out of a cup and not hunt or eat the free range insects?
My Werner's does the same! She wants me to hold the cup, but not look at her -- what else yet?! I decided it was a bad (albeit cute) habit, so I now put her cup in a different place each day. She refused to eat for a few days after I stopped serving her, but she's back on track now.ha mine is just the opposite and wont eat out of the cup unless I hold it for him! spoiled rotten!!!
I posted pics of my cup feeder on this thread. It's just a take out container I painted the outside of because it was so transparent he was trying to eat them through it. You can see it's just paper clipped to his branch. The trick is to find one tall enough they can't jump out, but if you can't find one tall enough then you can always pluck the back legs off so they can't jump. I got tired of doing that though.Im feeding crickets, and they seem to excape from the cup quickly. My panther has a large cage so im sure they are hiding everywhere. What size cup are you guys using and what is it made out of? He is new 3-4 months old and doesnt like me holding a cup by him or me even being around it seems.. I want to be sure he has plenty of chances to eat but dont want 50 crickets hoping around his cage.
