His basking spot is 115 and the cool side goes down to about 90. He seems to go to the bathroom every other day or so. He's in a 36"x21"18" cage for now. As long as he seems happy and he's eating a little bit I guess he's ok. I'll have to keep an eye on the little guy though, I'll get him some treats tomorrow. Thanks for the reply!

:The first thing you should do is check his temperatures (probably the first thing you should do when you have any problem). 120 basking spot with a gradient down to 80-90 on the cool end. I would not worry much as long as he is eating a little. My little one didn't really start eating a lot until last month and I have had him for 5 months. He would eat peas and flowers and nibble on his greens but nothing very substantial. (He did go to the bathroom every day however; does your little one go frequently?) Now he's a eating machine and is always almost awkwardly fat. As long as his setup is right I'd just give him more time.

:PS: dandelions and peas are Nebu's favorite.
