Well, Zoe still isn't eating on his own. I don't know what's going on.
I have seen him shoot his tongue, ONCE, and wouldn't you know it, it was at a peice of pearlite, or whatever it's called in a plant! Not even a REAL cricket! sheeeeesh!
What's going on with my silly chameleon?!
I have only been making sure that he is still getting water, as I never see him drink on his own...but I have not force fed him in two or three days now. He just shows NO interest in food.
I'm trying to be careful not to fill him up with water, so that it suppresses his appetite. But at the same time I don't want to let him get dehydrated again.
UUUUGGGGHHHHH...I just don't know what to with him!
I don't think I was ever this concerned about how much food my KIDS were getting into them! I just figured they'd eat when they got hungry...but with Zoe it seems he's content to starve himself to death!
Anyone have any ideas what I should do?
