    He is prob still getting use to his new surrondings. Give him more time and he should come around and start eating as long as his temps are right. As for him running away that will take time to. But alot of people on here will tell u to put in a shirt that u have worn recently so he gets ur scent and gets used to it.

    I rescued A gold tegu 4 weeks ago and he/she went mental everytime I entered the enclosure.... Patience is key, let it settle in for a few days and then when its out and about just slowly keep putting yourself in the enclosure a little closer each day and if it freaks just hold still until it calms. I didn`t do the jumper thing but loads of people do.....I finally got to stroke my little pal yesterday.
