How old is he and can you fill out the how to ask for help form so we can tell if your husbandry is wrong or if the chameleon is just sick.

Whats your schedule for the dusting? He might just be being a hardhead and refusing to eat. Have you tried to feed him anything other then what you already named? My Jackson refused to eat for about a week before.

How many waxworms did you feed him?

Usually if you give them too much, they'll go on a "food strike" and will ONLY eat waxworms. Samething with mealworms.

If thats the case, just let your guy starve and eventually he'll eat. just offer crickets or try other feeder options such as dubia roaches, horn worms and silk worms.

I noticed you dust with D3 you should every feeding WITHOUT D3 you should only give D3 twice a month and vitamins twice a month as well.
