Thanks for the info. Sounds like I could do a general lowering of temps about 5-10 degrees across cool and hot sides. I did soak it last night in tepid water and placed cypress mulch in its hide box and across the bottom of the cage. I offered it some banana hoping the sweetness would help entice a feeding response. I cant swear, but it may have nibbled a piece.

The lizard appears pretty lethargic, even in its heated cage. Very docile and not skittish when handled. Still remains pretty lethargic and didnt even get skittish when placed in the shallow water of the bathtub. As far as feeding, it hasnt to best of our knowledge, even when offered live crix. We have offered it various veggies, canned cat food, banana, bearded dragon bites, raw egg.
