Hey there,
To echo Osira's response, I'd be willing to bet your HL's lack of appetite is stress or temperature related. Depending on terrarium size, an HL can get freaked out if there isn't anywhere to hide, and likewise will "shut down" if temps aren't high enough for proper daily routine. Don't forget the power of UVB..... Anyway, let the temps get into the high 90's-low 100's on the hot side, and around 75 or 80 on the cool side. Maybe place his tank in a low traffic area of your home. That might help him from stressing due to your interactions. Until he gets better, I would advise AGAINST handling your HL, because it may stress him even more. Anyway, Hope this helped.

check out Phrynosoma.org for other husbandry questions.

good luck!
-Phil
