Veild Cameleon not eating

Hello,

I have a 4 month male veild cameleon, named Bubba. I have been noticing Bubba hasn't been eating his crickets, and also he hasn't been active. He has been at the bottom of the cage for a couple of days now. He still has his pretty green color. So visually I can't tell is he is sick or not. The cage gets misted every hour for 30 seconds.

I"m a new owner to this cameleon, so I'm still learning about them.

Does anybody have any suggestions for a rookie like myself? Am I doing something wrong for him not to eat?

Thanks,
Jennie:D :D
