In Reply to: Roaming Crickets vs Cup Feeding! posted by livxpreshun on April 20, 2003 at 15:13:41:

Hi- I have 6 panther chameleons, and all are free roam feeding, and they are all in large cages. The cup feeding works good if you can not keep the crickets in the cage because the scrren is to big and they can go right through it. I however dont use cricket, I use silkworms, so I dont have to worry about crickets all over the place. I only use crickets every once in a while when I have no silkworms to feed or if one of my panthers refuse the silkworms for a period of time. I have a WC female ambilobe that would eat the silkworms when I first got her, then she refused to eat them, and would only eat crickets, but she always goes back to the silkworms after a period of time. There is a good link for a nice feeder cup, I think they called it a cricket run? You may try that, I dont see why he would not free roam feed, it is hard to switch from free roam to cup feeding. Hope this helps!

:Hello all,

:Ok, so I am going to make my second cage - bigger and better - and I have a question. When I got my veiled at one month old, I used to love watching him run around in the ten gallon tank chasing crickets and nailing them. When he got to be bigger I put him into his first cage that I built for him that is made of plastic hardware cloth so roaming crickets was not a choice and I went to cup feeding.

:SO - I want to go back to romaing crickets after I make my new screen cage and want to know if anyone does this with their chams - and if you think this is bad or good. Thank you!
