10 days ago I found a chuck, about 14 inches long. He was alert, but on a busy street so I decided I would try and give him a home. Took him to a pet store to confirm what he is. Bought a 4 foot tank, sand, basking lights and so on. But now 5 days later he still hasn’t eaten. I’ve tried romaine, mustard greens, dandelions, hibiscus, cantolpe, kiwi, grass, cactus, bird food, crickets, and some iguana food I bought that looks like mushed up berries. Still no luck. I’m not sure if he was someone’s pet or if he was wild. Could I be killing him if he was wild and put him into captivity? Could it be because he is shedding? I know they get their water from their food source.....so that means he hasn’t ate or drank in 5 days. Please if anyone has advice let me know. He is tame....just lays on my chest when I hold him. Help!
