I have an alligator lizard that I rescued from my cats. I had a spare tank so I kept it in that so the leg wounds could heal. It seemed to be doing well. It was eating crickets and I would dust them with calcium every third feeding. During the time I've had it it has shed twice.

For the past week and half to two weeks it has been hiding in the substrate but moving around. Yesterday I got home to find it out but not moving like before, then it seemed to go limp. When I pick it up the tail is limp and his back legs aren't moving and are pointed towards the end of its tail. This front legs move but it always end up pointing towards the tail too. It will open its mouth and move its head but that is about it and the eyes seem alert.

Today the lizard appears to be in the same condition.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. I am puzzled as to what I should do. Thanks in advance.
