Eastern Fence lizard not drinking water
I got a Eastern fence lizard a couple days ago, a big male, he eats a lot, whatever I give him as long as it moves, but he won’t drink any water.
I’m very worried because I caught an anole that was skinny, I didn’t know what was wrong with him, he ate sometimes, and drank about twice as much water as he ate, and because much more active then he was when I first caught him. I didn’t know what was wrong with him or that something was horribly wrong when he died yesterday, that morning he was bright green, happy as always, playing around on his branches, then dead... My dad thinks he died of dehydration.
I don’t want it to happen to my Fencie, he’s very active, as I wasn’t going to keep him, but my anole died, and my mom just bought a whole much of lizard stuff for Christmas, so now Alduin has it.
I soak him in water twice a day, hoping maybe he’ll absorb some liquid, but other than him not drinking he seems in great health, what can I do to get him to drink water?
