The man we got him from told us that he had eatting already .He said it was about 2 to 3 weeks old .He is a foot and half long . We have him in a 20 gal tank with a log in the tank . We have him on paper and have a bowl of water in there.He has been realy active . He is partly shedding .I have no clue what the temp is in there (I know it's not good I Have three Bearded Dragons ) I have a reptile blue light on him I just can't remember what watt. it is . We Got him a pinky from the pet store we put him and the pinky in a rubber made tot put the top on it and waitted but he never eat. We then froz the pinky and tried two days later .We took the pinky out and put it in a bag and put it in a cup of hot water and then gave it to him again but he still has not eatten .I was told to try dipping the pinky in chicken broth and tried this but still nothing .My son is very upset that he will not eat and I have no clue what to do . I do have a vet here that does reptiles but don't know if I should take him in ??? PLEASE HELP THANKS sorry for the long post.
