Hello to all,

I am not active in this forum as I just recently purchased my first water monitor. Some of you may have seen it posted for sale here on KS about a month ago. I am going into the 3rd week with this monitor and he simply refuses to eat. I have been offering him everything I have read to try. The only thing he has eaten was just about 3 tablespoons of ground turkey over a week ago. I have been trying to stay away from too much turkey as I have read where it may not be the greatest thing for him. This monitor is in a huge cage with about 12-18" of substrate to dig in (he stays buried a lot) and a large soaking bin that he goes into several times a day. The substrate is kept damp but not saturated by any means. Temps are at 120f for basking and 80-85 on the cool side of the enclosure. In my opinion, he has had plenty of time to acclimate. We have let him be and given him time to get used to his new home. What else can I do? I am starting to get concerned. Thank you very much! David
