In Reply to: Hissers as feeders for chameleons? posted by iwana on April 22, 2003 at 20:45:11:

We feed hissers from our colony to both our Jackson's and Veiled. They thrive on them. The logic that after hundreds of captive bred generations on dog food and veggies from the grocers that the babies are going to have bacteria from their "wild diet" is just a figment of someone's worried mind. Hissers give birth to live young, but those young hatch from eggs just like any other insect - they just are retracted inside mom till they are developed. Enjoy your colony - we haven't really bought any cham food in at least six months and our chams love the roaches...Bartleby the Jackson's even eats them out of DH's hand now. We also feed them to our geckos and bearded dragon(s)...
