:i've only had it a week but it will not eat????
:thanks for any help
Ok..For one do not handle him at all for a few days..Give him a chance to calm down..Try giving him a hiding place so that he can get away from all the noise and feel secure...He should start moving around on his own when he's ready and then you can try throwing a few crickets in there to see if he is ready...Throw em in and leave..Don't hang around or he may still feel threatened and not respond..Got to remember when they are that size, everything in the wild is trying to eat THEM..lol..He's just looking at you as a big predator and instinct is telling him to run and hide..In time he'll get used to you and then your gonna have a whole lot of nasty caimen on your hands..haha!..Keep us updated on his progress
