I bought mine about 2 weeks ago, Petco had two at the time mine, and one that was a lot smaller and emicated looking. I saw mine eat while at Petco and picked him because he seemed to be in much better condition. I have to agree on their appetite seeming to be lacking. I have him in a 75 gallon tank with all the neccessary lights/temps/humidity until I build him a bigger cage to go in. Some days when I come home I can't tell if he just ran through his food or picked at it, and some days I can tell he has a little bit. I walked in on him eating one time and quickly left to give him some time but other then that I have never seen him actually eat. I have kept handling to a minimum to try and let him acclimate, handled him a few times the first week and twice when taking him out to let him soak in the tub. I have tried to hand him while he was in the cage but no go, this weekend when I take him out to do a full clean on the cage I will try and feed him while hes out and see what he does. (his current salad consists of collard/mustard/turnip greens, butternut squash, yellow squash, green beans, carrots and every other day I mix it with strawberries and mango, and mix in some calcium everyday all finely chopped)

Been looking for some alfalfa to feed for protein but haven't had luck finding any, anyone know a good place to purchase some? After the first couple of days he has been very active going from is couple of basking spots to everywhere in the cage and poops everyday, stool looks normal with no odors so everything seems ok minus the minimal appetite. He is usually a very bright turqouise blue with white stripes on his side and a turqouise belly, when he gets scared/stressed he darkens down to a very dark blue/green.
