    dont expect him to eat for a few days or even weeks. just keep offering food until he does and dont worry unless he gets very skinny and still refuses to eat. He is most likely stressed and will eat eventually.

    To me it sounds like he is just stressed. To me it seems that captive bred baby reptiles/amphibians take longer to acclimate to their enviroment than an adult frog or a wild caught frog. If your frog is not eating in about 2 weeks I would start to worry then Hope this helps.

    Strider, for a baby 2 weeks of not eating could be too late it all depends on a lot of things with proper environment being a main factor here. OP is right of worrying about it now, because if anything is wrong it is not too late to change it. And in ideal conditions and proper sized tank baby ornates usually eat right after settling in, ( next day or in a few days), but some crazy ones go for food/fingers/anything the second the see anything in front of them.

    Oh woops I should probably read better :P I can understand how 2 weeks can be to long to start eating. It still could be distressed or not properly taken care of. I am sorry I will make sure I read better next time

    I really hope things are all better for Godzilla. Please let us know if he digests the lizard or not. try to feed him soft foods like nightcrawler worms so he doesn't get impacted (which means he can't go poop)
