Hello Bob:
They look phenomonal. Just like the couple I raised up. The biting, attacking behaviour is just so typical of the species it's kind of funny. By the pics they look very good so at least you have something to work with. All too often people start with animals in a down condition.
Now to get these guys eating regularly. They are a little bigger than I thought they were (that's why pics are important) and though they should chase the small crickets fine you might want to just put a couple three quater grown ones in there for them. Not a lot, maybe a half dozen at most.
Definitely try the bowls of meal worms. They should snap them up readily. And...just for an experiment why don't you try a small dish of finely chopped fruit (bright colors, maybe strawberry) garnished with some mealworms for movement. We may see that they'll take to it readily.
I'll rack my brain to see what I may be forgetting to tell you. I'm sure Jobi will be able to add something to this list. One of these days I'll get around to writing a care booklet on "Tree Dragons." I have lots of info, I just need the pics.
Good Luck and keep us posted. Though everything (cage included) looks fine, I won't feel secure until I hear from you that you've seen them eat. After setting up the feeder stations you may want to cover the cage partially and let them be for a day or two, monitoring them from peek holes. They look good, they should feed readily.
Take care and Have a Great Day!!!
P. S. Throw a few small feeder fish in the water. They may go after them.
Good Luck!!!
