Welcome! Looks like a little Flapneck Chameleon, and there are many people here that have them so they will hopefully chime in and give you good advice (I have never had a Flapneck). Make sure you gutload your crickets with good healthy veggies, etc. and dust them with calcium.
Welcome to the forum. Very nice looking flap neck, impressive. I never kept one also but there are plenty of people here that do and I'm sure will help you out.
I have a Flapjack

The term flapneck caught my attention so I thought I would look it up. I have a Chameleo trioceros fuelleborni otherwise known as a FlapJack. It differs from yours in that she has three tiny little horns. The funny thing is both of them are from Tanzania originally. I wonder if the two species could cross breed? Anyway cool pic. If you would like to see a pic of mine I have some in the gallery under Wally. Peace
