    Hi Chloe,

    How often between feeds?
    If you have just taken him on, he'll still be getting used to his surroundings and might be a bit flighty.
    The other things to be looked at is ensuring correct temps are being offered (high 30's, low 40's basking spot, mid-high 30s warm end, mid to high 20's cool end. If it's not warm enough, he won't want to eat, as without heat, he can't digest food properly.

    Mine is on and off food at the moment, and is very actively trying to put himself to bed for the winter, which I am trying to keep him from doing as he is too young to bromate.

    If you could advise your enclosure setup, either myself, or especially those a bit more knowledgeable, will be able to offer advice.
