Also, it is very important to leave him alone as much as possible. This means not taking him out of his enclosure to eat. Everytime you move a baby it takes time for them to get used to their surroundings and causes stress. If you move him to a different enclosure for feeding, it is very unlikely that he'll eat for you. Some others had good suggestions for feeding in the enclosure. I know it seems logical, especially for people used to snakes, to remove the beardie for food time, but it really can cause stress and problems for baby beardeds.
Good luck.

:I just received our new baby beardie yesterday. I ordered it through a reputable breeder, and it arrived via the mail by overnight delivery. I soaked it after arrival, and it shed after being put in its new home. I have it in a 40 gallon tank, with the proper lighting and temps. I cannot get it to eat as of yet. I have offered crickets, minced greens, and baby dragon food. I have been offering the crickets is another, smaller container, as I realize a 40 gallon tank is too big for it to find its food. I have the greens and other food in the tank. What can I do to get it to eat? How long until until I should get worried? It is basking and otherwise appears fine. Thanks for any help. This is my first beardie, so I don't have any experience from which to draw.
