    Exclamation Crested not eating?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi so I am new to owning a crested, I got him a little over a week ago and so far things have been going well? However I havenít noticed him eating any of his food or seen any poop in his enclosure. They said he ate the day before I picked him up last Sunday. Heís a juvenile and I was told he was around 6 months old, should I be concerned or is he still acclimating? I know we have a vet in town that will see him, so should I try to make an appointment?

    I’m going to include pictures of his enclosure and him. His humidity ranges from 80-60 (I have a monsoon solo misting system on it and it sprays twice a day), his temperatures go from 70-80 and he has a 5 watt LED bulb on the enclosure for the Pothos plant.

    Your temps and humidity sound fine. Sometimes it takes up to a month before a crestie feels comfortable in a new "apartment", so I would give it some time yet. You may not notice him eating as the lick marks are so small. The poop may be hidden in the plants or hides too. Just keep watching, and be patient. He's probably just fine. You could try putting two feeding ledges in for a while - one high and one low, to make his food easier for him to find.
