How big is the cage? Maybe he/she feel kindda in-secured. I had my baby in opaque plastic sweater box and within a week he came around and started eating. For some reason mine didn't eat the red wigglers in the beginning. But will eat crickets, rolly polly, sow bugs, roaches and things like that. Surprisingly, he will eat the salads, but refuse earthworms. [chuckle]

At this point I'm not sure what is going on to honest.... Turtles usually come around pretty quickly if you set them up right.

Try giving him a little bit of soaked, low-fat, dry, dog kibbled. I know they can't resist that. That's my box turtles' favorite treat. I only give it once in a while, though. It's really not good for them.

Do you have UVB light? I think you do, but I can't seem to recall....
