I have two younger sulcatas. The smaller one recently stopped eating. The two are in an open air environment spilit into two sections. One area is a topsoil, bedabeast and sand mixture and the other is alphafa pellets. Temps have never dipped below 70-75 and most areas are constantly around 80-85 if not a little higher. Both get bathed bi-weekly get hay, some dandelion and fresh grown bermudas, clovers, etc. The smaller one was eating great until we got a cold streak (I only mention this because I can't think of anything else which could have caused the lack of appetite). Anyways, I separated him and have been bathing twice a day and used some eye drops since he did have a little goop in his eye. He looks fine, eyes are clear, he has pooped, and there are no noticeable problems. However, he just doesn't have an appetite. Any ideas? Thanks
