My new Chameleon

I just got my first new chameleon in a really long time (almost 10 years), she is a beautiful Veiled Chameleon. She is about 3 inches snout to vent. I was wondering what peoples opinions are on how much to feed her.

She has been eating pretty much constantly for me (5-10 bugs a day), comes down from her perch eats 1 or 2 bugs then goes back up, and repeats this 3-5 times a day.

My main feeders are Dubia Cockroaches babies that are about 1/4" long (have several colonies going).

I will be using these as treats:
Crickets - Pinheads to 1/4"
Silk Worms
Mealworms

Congrats on your new girl. Pretty soon you will need to cut back on her food but for now what you are doing sounds ok. Do you have any pictures? I keep veileds and I'm attaching a couple of my blogs for you. One for general care since you haven't had a cham in 10 years and the other is about egg laying and the laying bin. Jann
