Hi,

I'm just after a bit of advice.

I have 2 veiled chameleons housed seperatley which i've had for a while know & everything is well so far!!!

However, every morning I used to throw in a handful of crickets for them pre gutloaded with cricket grub but my wife was tearing her hair out everytime she saw a loose cricket running around & the noise they make is unbearable especially in the hot weather.

So, I have stopped feeding them crickets & started to buy a sackful of locusts each week of which they love & gut load them with greens.

I am throwing in about 4-5 small locusts a day & am curious as to whether this is enough for chams.

I also mist their flexariums every morning as well.

Also, what else do you recommend I do with regards to diet?

how old are the chams?

mine is only about 5 months old and is eating 3-6 large (well over 2 inch) hoppers each day, i also give the odd wax worm here and there, moths, worms no crix though, hate the noise and the stink!

my 9 month old male gets a box of adult locust every other day, and mealies/waxies occasionally. if i have roaches i give them too. i was advised to feed him less often, considering their short life span..

my experience of chams is that they have huge appetites, and they like a big variety, i even used to pupate maggots for him to eat the flies. also got crix, locusts, waxies and whatever was banging round the lampshade(moths daddy longlegs, spiders etc.). I wish i knew what i now know about roaches when i had him though-theyre the best!

Good to see your supporting the right team. Lol.

They are both over 12 months old.
CHAMPIONS!!!! lol

i am sure they would eat more than that, especialy the female as they are like dustbins when it comes to food, just try a few more and see if they take them....
