Eating Problems

My chameleon is chewing up the crickets and spiting them out! What should I do? or that mean? Does he not like them any more and I should try to give him something different! Any suggestions!

Hmm... I'm not sure. Maybe they just have a foul taste or something He might not like them.
The crickets you say are pinheads, right?
Or (I'm just guessing on this one, don't take my word for it) he could have a little cut or something that hurts him when he swallows.... it could be

So, how is the eating problem now?

You need to have a variety of bugs, fruits, and veggies that you offer this guy. He is soooo picky!!

I said to use the worms cuz he wasn't eating anything else. And did he even eat many of either kind of worms you got?

If he's 4 1/2 months old pinheads are likely too small.
