I just got my first Veiled Chameleon and he is about 2 inches long (not including tail). It is eating like crazy! I've only had it roughly 24 hours and it's already eaten about 15 crickets, is that normal. Also it's drank a few drops of water a few times. Can you over feed them?

I think you can overfeed them but when theyre young they need to eat more vigorously because they are growing.

Hello & welcome, we are glad to have you join us. Since your chameleon is small, I would let him eat whatever he wants. At that age they need to eat to grow. After he hits 6 or 7 months then he should slow down. We are here to help if you need us.
