I am new to this and am doing my best to do everything as perfect as possible for my new cham. I also have summer break just around the corner and was curious as to some tricks and experienced knowledge on how to feed them while away (besides a friend). Also, how long can jacksons go without food? Given the lighting is on a timer, and a drip system is in place. I may be gone for (at most) a week at a time, however not often, so i am just thinking ahead. I figure a bowl at the bottom with some worms, and crickets (with the back legs removed) would work and possibly hold him over for a few days? This brings me to my next point. I read you should remove the legs every time when feeding.. does this only apply to younger chams? or for all ages? that is a lot of surgeries a day! I'm pretty sure they eat them in the wild without picking their legs off first. I have been taking them off and was wondering if it was really necessary. My very last question (I promise, thank you for working with me) roughly how long does (should) bruising take to heal?
