I just purchased a Jacksons Chameleon and Ive had him for two days now
and hes not eating. Hes a bright greenish yellow color most of the
time although alternates to brown and patterns sometimes. He drinks
everyday off the leaves and even straight from the bottle i mist with
but he just wont eat. I offer him a variety of crickets meal worms
apples lettuce and apples but he doesent eat anything. He’s a little
skinny and im getting worried anyone have some help? please and thanks
to everyone who helps!

Hopefully you’re consulting a lot of care sheets–if not, Google “jacksons
chameleon care sheet” and read what pops up (more than one; some people have
slightly different techniques and advice).
Make sure you’re providing enough shrubbery so the lizard can have some
privacy, and only put a couple of crickets in with him (so he doesn’t feel
overwhelmed by an army of insects he can’t escape!). Two days isn’t long at
all to go without eating, but if he’s appearing skinny, maybe he wasn’t in
the best shape when you acquired him. At least you’re getting him to drink.
