    good question. not real sure, never been much into lizards. you said he has a heck of a bite. maybe tease him with a cricket till he gets mad enough to bite and see if he realizes its food?

    You could always put a wax worm in some tweezers and press it agains his mouth, though I have a feeling you are going to have to force feed.

    I have already been force feeding. I already tried the cricket trick. It just hung half way out of his mouth until he decided to spit it out.

    try ripping the abdomen off of the cricket and smear the liquid on his mouth. Worked for my frilled that wouldn't eat. He then ate the abdomen.

    I know this update is long past due but I have been very busy because I had to go to NC for a death in the family.
    I had to take the curly tail with me. I thought that the ride there might kill him but I knew if I left him here he would defiantly die. I took him there and he made the trip fine. He's been doing a little better everyday. The growth on him eye, I'm sure it's his eyeball that has ruptured. While I was in NC he opened his other eye and looked at me. He keeps it closed most of the time, but some times he opens it and looks around. I am now feeding him bearded dragon treats. He opens his mouth when I pick him up, to warn me that he's going to bite me and I shove a treat in, lol. I'm still giving him water with a syringe.
    He moves around a little more than he did before and he seems to be more feisty when you pick him up. All are good signs. I actually think he may make it now.
