He's a couple of months old now, but I've only had him for about 3 weeks. I give him a coulpe crickets twice a week and he eats them. I gave him a few freshly picked dandelions and he at them after about 3 hours (and they shrunk from the heat!). Other than that he doesn't eat very well. I offer him lots of vegetables every day (peas, lima beans, fresh cut greens, just a little corn, asparagus, mustard greens, collard greens, a little lettuce ...) He occasionally will take a few bites, but rarely. I'm afraid he's gonna get sick if he doesn't eat more. He seems happy most of the time, when he isn't afraid of his own shadow. I know they need time to acclimate to new surroundings, but shouldn't 3 weeks be enough? Also, gonna go to the nursery tomorrow to get some flowers for him, anyone have any ideas/recommendations?? Thanks!
