Cricket care question

So this may be a stupid question but I have not seen this before. One of my crickets died in the container and I saw another eating it. Should I be cautious of giving the cannibal cricket to my chameleon? I don't know why the one cricket died so I'm just trying to make sure there is nothing wrong.

no, when they die they serve as a host for harmful bacterias and parasites, you should take the dead crickets out everyday. along with that the dead cricket bodies will make other living crickets die faster most likely from eating eachother.

Yep yep yep great advice above. Make sure you are gutloading as well. Here is an image for the best feeding options and what to pass on. Or you can buy something like repashy bug burger for gutload.
