In Reply to: Qustion about Cup Feeding... posted by hades-raptor on May 06, 2003 at 21:28:06:
I've tried pulling the legs off of the crickets to keep them in the bowl...just the big jumping legs.
but Zoe will have none of it. He won't even look at a bug in a bowl.
When he was eating regularly on his own he would only pay attention to free range crickets and worms.
You could also try squishing thier head a little...so that they will still twitch, but not jump. I know that sounds really morbid but, I've done that with meal worms ever since Zoe was bit on the eye by one.
By the way...no need to feel dumb!
:I feel really dumb posting this, but I can't quite figure this out.
:I hear about peoeple feeding their chams from cups or bowls. How exactly do you do this? I've put crickets in teh fridge for a few min, so they slow down, and then tried putting them in the cup so my cham could go eat them, but before my cham got around to going over there and starting to watch them, the crickets were up and jumping out of the cup. Same goes with all other insects I try feeding,they get out of hte cup and wander the cage.
:What's the trick to it?
:-Randilyn, feeling really dumb.
