I think if it's getting thin, it may be time to be concerned. Since you just moved it, however, you may want to give a little more time. Make sure the temperatures and environment are in line with what has been outlines in the croc faq on Crocodilian.com and you also might consider covering the enclosure completely till the animal begins to feel comfortable. Try putting live food such as crickets on the land area at night when the lights go out too. Usually, this behavior is environmentally related so make sure you understand all the variables that may be influenceing it.
:I moved about 3-4 months ago into my new house, With a new roomate, The first night I stayed there with my Spec. He ate once
:Ever since that, He has not eaten, (4 Months) He was in a medium traffic area, With new people looking in on him all the time, So I know he was uncomfortable, The reason why hew wasn't feeding.
:I recently moved him into my room where I keep the door shut and locked to assure he gets privacy..heh..
:Is 3-4 months w/ out feeding something I should be strongly worried about? he looks skinny and he refuses all food..
:any input would be greatly appreciated
