>>But if it goes on for more then a few days, I have considered dusting a few crickets and tossing them in there to see if it would arouse his appetite, agaisnt my gut instinct as well as yours and many other's knowledge about the problems of protein and iguanas. He was however housed with a beardie, so god knows what those pet shop people had him eating.
At this point, assuming he is active and of good weight, give him time. I usually give 2 weeks to all new animals before I worry. Measuring your food will help you gauge how much he is eating. I personally would avoid doing crix at all. Having a reptile rescue here in my home, I see a WHOLE lot of fasts initially. Two weeks is average settling time.
Treat these weeks like you would a new monitor, even going so far as to cover the exposed portions of the cage. I would expect that you see him eat.
