Usually chameleons are known to get a little grumpy during shedding.

The not eating and hissing is normal.

Just wait until he is done shedding and he will be very hungry :p

Oh good...shall i still put food in for him or not...i think it best if i leave him whilst he is shedding and just open cage to mist :)

I defiantly wouldn't test him :p, but I like to at least offer mine a couple worms (something easy to take out if he doesn't eat them) so if he does decide he's hungry, he can still eat. :)

Lights stay the same.

As for worms, it depends on the kind. Mealworms and wax worms are treats. Phoenix, horn, silk, and sometimes king worms can be fed on a more regular basis. :)

Something that might be useful to both you and your cham; keep the humidity up! It helps them shed more quickly. :)
