I got a chacoan tegu about a week ago, and he hasnt eaten anything. He comes out to bask and explore a bit. And hes active. But ive tried to feed him so many things and he doesnt seem interested. Ive tried superworms, crickets, turkey, fruits and vegetables. And nothing seems to work. Im getting nervous because hes starting to look way skinner then when i first got him. Any advice why he wont eat?

Would you post a photo of him please? Normal for them to not eat for a bit when in new surroundings. Also, winter slowdown varies among individuals. Being skinny, however, is not good.
