my male has been on a hunger strike for over three months .when he use to eat he would only take brained pinkies.temps are fine 68-72 mostly 70 degrees.aspen bedding,with two nice hides- one half log and one wet paper towels.he is 23 inches and is being housed in a ten gallon aquarium by himself.he has a water bowl big enough for him to get in.he has been sheding fine and has no visual parasites.

now that i gave all of mt info i have some questions. #1-should i offer a small lizard like an anole?
#2-should i worry? when he was eating he took 8 pinkies every week for five weeks.
#3-could he have stored up so much energy that he dosent need to eat?
also he seems to be as active as he was before the hunger strike.
please help me-ill take all the info, and suggestions you can give. thanks alot.
