I have a younger lizard that I purchased 2 months ago at a show. I brought him home and instantly had issues with him not eating. I was informed that most of my issues were due to my set up for him. I moved him to a 20 gallon tank. He is on a tile that takes up half of the tank with a UTH hooked up to a thermostat. He has a warm hide and a humid hide on that side. The temperature of the tile read with a laser thermometer is 95. He has a 2 hides on the cold side that stay around 75. He is on top of the shelf unit that holds a couple other reptiles so their lights will not bother him. The only light is the little sun that comes through the basement window and the room light that I turn off at 8PM and never turn on at night. He will not eat. I was ready to give up on him thinking he was going to die but I can't. I have tried leaving small crickets in with him overnight (I know this shouldn't be done) and the next day none had been eaten. I got a dish and would put meal worms in it and leave them there for days. He would not eat a single one. I was tempted to try giving him some wax worms but didn't want to open that can of worms (no pun intended). He stays in his hides mostly and I never see him out. Last night I was feeding the snake under him (I feed my nocturnal animals at night) and I saw him run into one of his hides. I couldn't believe he was out. I dropped 2 meal worms near the entrance of the hide that he ran into. I came back with a small flashlight and saw the worms were gone . I went and got two more and dropped them in at the same place. I came back later and one was gone (I don't know if the other was hiding somewhere). I am going to try this again tonight, but was wondering if any of you have come across a lizard that just doesn't want to eat. His tail is skinny and he needs to put some weight on. Also to add., I have not bothered him for a month. I have opened his cage once to clean it but I left the hide he was in alone so he shouldn't be stressed about anything. He is also on the top shelf so he isn't stressed by my kids running around the room during the day.
