    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 :confused: 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.
