In Reply to: Frillies only eat when I handfeed(?) them. posted by Vic on January 08, 2003 at 04:23:57:
It could be that they are spoiled--LOL--and you just feed them enough so they are never so hungry to work for it! Try something that moves a lot, like superworms in a dish that they can see from their basking spot. Put it in there when they havent eaten for a couple days (adults I'm assuming)--all that movement, they probably cant just sit there and watch for too long!
As long as they are eating and drinking that is good.
They could be a little lazy with the change of seasons too--when they brumate they do just cling to the branches and stay put.
If you want to get them to exercise, you can close off a room, preferable with carpet and get them to run across it--get behind them and sort of scoot their behinds along. LOL.
just some stabs at it
:My 1.2 frilled dragons only eat when I feed them by hand.
:Did I spoiled them doing that cause they won't come down to eat.
:They do eat enough this way, but when I offer the food on the ground they don't hunt and eat them, they just stay on their branch.
:They do come down regulair just to ehhh poop and then they stay on the ground for a while and do a little walk around the cage.
:Anyone has an idea why?
