so it has ate two days in a row, first day i left 3 tiny pinkies in and they were gone in the morning, second day i left 5 and they were gone in the morning, and i also left 20 superworms covered in calcium with d3, but none were eaten. and both times when i came home later in the day, the enclosure was a complete mess covered in small holes and dirt with plastic vines and leaves thrown everywhere (good sign)?

i am going to put 10 pinkies in tonight, as i just want him to eat so hopefully it helps his body get him through the stress of a new environment. humidity has been kept in the 80s, but his eyes have changed. they dont look sunken, but wrinkles are forming on the bottom eyelid and one wrinkle on top, im thinking its a sign of dehydration, although it doesnt make sense due to how moist the hair has been. when i put my hand in to clean/change water, my arm feels sticky because its so humid, any thoughts on this..?

tonight im going to fill some of the pinkies with water, to get even more water into this guy. if i cant get any advice or answers on the computer from knowledgable and experienced monitor keepers, then it will be off to the vets, so im hoping FR can help with the situation.

125 - 135 basking spot
86 hot ambient
74 - 76 cool ambient
