My chameleon hasn't eatin anything since sunday, i feed her 4 small mealworms, and she won't eat the mealworms that are in her bowl now.

Has anyone tried the vibrating rock bowl with those prepackaged crickets?

Are you feeding anything besides mealworms?
Why would you want to vibrate dead crickets as opposed to feeding live ones?

when i went to petsmart they were out of crickets and she needed food badly, so i got mealworms.

and i think feeding dead crickets would be somewhat cheeper and easier.

Won't eat.

If your chameleon is on a hunger strike, try something new like superworms (zophobas morio), silkworms, butterworms or roaches. Unfortunately, you won't find any of these at petsmart. You might find waxworms there, which may get your chams apetite going again.
As far as the dead crickets go, one of the most important aspects of chameleon husbandry is gutloading, and you can't gutload a dead cricket.

What species of chameleon do you have?

What is the temperature in the basking area? If the chameleon can't warm up enough the digestion will be slowed down.
