i had a basilisk for 3 years and when i first got it, it didn’t eat for propobaly 1.5 weeks. then it stated eating all of a sudden. and you have only had yours for 3 days. i wouldn’t worry to much, yet atleast.

Yes as smokey said alot of lizards will not eat for a week or two because of their new environment and moving stress.
As long as you are giving it the right care everything should be fine, if it goes too long then get a vet check up(wich you should anyways most basilisks are WC).

You may also want to be sure it has plenty of clean water. I know my guy loves to sit in his tub and drink the water straight, or he will lick it off the branches when the mister goes off every couple of hours.

Just put the crickets in the cage and leave them alone your basilisk will learn to hunt for food I did that and now mine don’t like to be hand feed. They love to Chase their food, its an exercises for them.
