Hello,

I adoped a Sudan Plated Lizard over a month ago. It is approximately 8 inches long (incl. tail)

I've got him set up in a 55 gallon, with all necessities (I am a rehabber)..but no matter WHAT I try, I CANNOT get him/her to eat.

I've tried zoophobas, pinkies, wax worms, earthworms, fruits, you name it! A fecal showed ascarids, and he was dewormed twice.
Fecal now comes up negative.

I do catch this lizard basking, but the second it sees any movement, it hides. (and it's FAST!)

I know his enclosure is warm enough, good bright light, big cave to hide in, etc.

Has anyone had a problem like this? I am getting really frustrated, am have finally resported to tube feeding him at this point (he is VERY thin) but he will drink small aounts of water from a syringe. He seems to deal with being handled OK...

Any and all suggestions/observations would be greatly appreciated!
