brightness? could the cage not be bright enough? We keep lots of chameleons too and use reptariums. I've noticed that most agamids do not do well in dark screen enclosures because it is just not bright enough. The uva seems to be really crucial to their livelihood and appetites. Anytime I've used screen enclosures for frillies, I make sure it is next to a window that gets a lot of sunlight in addition to multiple tube and dome lighting.
It is strange since I've always been amazed at how hardy the frillies are as babies. ???? i dont know!

: Wow that is strange then, I only feed them 1/2" cricket have a good sized water bowl in there and have them in my herp room. We only go in the herp room 3 times a day other than that they are alone. They dont have any visual to any other animals. We have not handled them at all. I mist them 3 times per day. Just not as hardy as I would have thought. This is not to bash anyone just want to know why I am keeping them as everyone else is and they dont seem to be doing all that well. Or maybe is just me, a person that keeps panthers and veileds and am used to them eating anything and everything all day if they want to:0)
