Leave it to the "experts!"
I think it is fine to hold them. Some handle it better than others. Most are fine once they are off the perch and onto your hand. Be carefull taking them off a branch tho, I understand you can break toes if you force them too hard.
They will also eat mealworms, moths, and basically any moving bug (don't feed lightening bugs). They also will sometimes eat plants -try romaine lettuce or endive or put a pothos ivy in the cage - they will nibble on that.
: I am a new owner of a 6 week old female veiled chameleon. I have 4 books on the subject and low and behold they all say something different. Is it o.k. to handle her. One book said no the other said handle everyday to avoid aggressive behavior. She does not like to be sprayed and all of the books say to spray. Is there something else besides crickets to feed her at this age. I would think she would °ariety. I would appreciate any info.
