I was just curious as to the signs of a Uro dying. I just bought a pair of Nigerians and the male looks worse and worse everyday. He's only eaten twice in 5 days. He is extremely thin; to the point where you can see all his bones. His tail is also very very thin. I have tried everything to get him to eat, but he simply won't. I know it takes time for acclimation, but he just doesn't seem to have any energy to even move. You can pick him up and put him anywhere and he'll just shut his eyes. He also sleeps/naps out in the open. He will sleep in a cave if you guide him into it. I am really worried and don't know what to do. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
