I have two blue-belly lizards, one that I caught and one that a co-worker caught.
The one that I caught is smaller, and very active, but the bigger fella doesn't look too keen. He's always lazing around, often with his eyes half-lidded. He has a crusty nose and I can't tell if he's eating. Dory is the one that puts in the crickets, and he says he's never seen it eat. When I pick him up, he goes stiff and still, not at all like a wild lizard. And he doesn't scamper when I put him down.
I've had him for about a month, and this is too long for it to be a tantrum or the "blues". I intended to release both, but this sluggishness has put that on hold. The two like to hang out together, I'd like to release them together.
They have a heat lamp, and there is no humidity requirement-- I caught them outside, local conditions are just perfect.
What can I do?
