We got a baby axanthic blue shipped here and it arrived last Tuesday. Today we thought he/she had mysteriously disappeared only to find he was dark in color (stress, right) and had buried himself deep under his substrate (forest floor) under the food dish. We got him unburied and then checked on him 5 min later and he was completely submerged in his water dish with his eyes closed. His face head and everything. We got him out and he's pretty apathetic. We are new iguana owners but have experience with other advanced reptiles. Just want to take care of our new little one. Is something wrong or are we just being paranoid? Any advice welcome.
