    Hello There

    I got my chameleon today and i was wondering how many pinhead crickets i should feed him a day? He is about 7 weeks old.

    What kind of chameleon do you have? Want to tell us about his setup, we might be able to offer some ideas for that also. Congrats on your cham.

    Its a veiled chameleon. I have posted a few other posts on here about my set up the last few weeks and i finally got my cham today :)

    He went a dark colour when i first put him in the enclosure but he seems fine now exploring his home

    feed him as much as he will eat :p when they are young they will eat ALOT at 2 months my little panther was eating at least 10 crickets a day, and ive heard of them eating like 15. So i would throw in between 10-15 and if he finishes them all, throw some more in and see if he will eat.

    My general rule is to feed them as much as they will eat at each feeding when they are young.
