If your cham won't eat from a cup in your hand, try this!


My baby sometimes will step onto my fingers, but he's only tried to eat from my hand once. Most of the time he's not interested (and crickets are, well FAST!). He doesn't really like cup feeding in general, and only goes for the cricks when they're free range. Well, today I put a couple of crickets on one of those "mossy sticks" and held it in the cage. My cham has been scared of these before when "wielded," but I brought it in VERY slowly to where he was sitting on a vine. The crickets stayed put because it felt like a safe space! Eventually my cham felt comfortable and ate the crickets one at a time :)

P.S. These sticks are GREAT for general climbing and perching :)
