by the way i dnt treat my chameleon like a gadget hes my baby end of!These are animals not gadgets. They do what they want when they want. If he's hungry he'll eat if hes not he won't . My cham sleeps hanging from his tail at night which isnt normal but he likes doing it.
This what I met and that there's no manual as to handle your individual cham, each one is a little person.some people feed every day, some feed every other day. There is no wrong answer. As already stated, its important not to overfeed. I feed 3 to 5 cricks or the equivalent in other types of feeders every day. Some feed 6 to 10 every second day.
hey Lynda, Have you ever had success halting a female panthers egg production completely? Dont remember you saying if you deal with panthers or not...I feed hatchlings at least once every day as much as they will eat in a couple of minutes leaving a couple of extra crickets in their cage since they are growing. Once they are about 3 or 4 months old I feed them every second day as much as they will eat in a couple of minutes and leaving a couple of crickets in the cage for later. I continue feeding them every second day from then on except for during the winter when its cooler and their metabolism slows down a bit...and then it could be that they will get fed every 3 days. There's no set rule. I just don't overfeed them constantly and I don't feed them if they are getting fat. I control the females' diet more than the male's too with the hope that they will not lay big clutches....or maybe not lay at all.
I feed almost daily.i have a male adult chameleon and i have been speaking to a chameleon specialist in the uk and he told me its fine to feed my chameleon everyday but i keep reading on here that you should on feed him every other day???
