Help.. New chameleon just regurgated


New Member
Hey, so I got a adult male panther chameleon about 3 days ago, he ate right away after he was shipped to my house, its been three days and today I noticed he didn't take any food and then all of a sudden he leaned down and threw up a half digested ball of food, I own a few chameleons and have never had this issue before please advise what happened and if this is a big issue ?

It is hot enough for the chameleon to digest, I think it may have to do with the fact that he over ate... he ate like four horn worms back to back yesterday so I was thinking that might be the culprit... any thoughts?
