Hello all, new to this particular section of the forum (I usually hang out in the snake part).
I recently bought a Fire skink from Repticon Houston, and was not given very good information from the vendor.
She has not eaten since the first day, and I've offered her both crickets as well as mealworms. At first I had her in a 29, with uva and uvb, and an undertank heater. The substrate was forest bark, not really sure what the name of it was, but it looked just like mulch. Then after the first week of not eating, I moved her to a 10 gallon with uva and uvb on, and infared heat lamp on at night. I mist her cage at least twice a day (before I leave for work, and when I come home in the evenings), and offer her food every evening. I've even left her alone with the food and she isn't interested.
Also, her coloring has changed. She was a dark chocolate brown, and now she is more of a milky brown.
I'm afraid I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I refuse to let her die of starvation.
What do I do?
