 URGENT!! Starving Dehydrated oriental garden Lizard

PLEASE HELP!!

I have today rescued a starving oriental garden lizard. He is weak having not eaten or drunk for perhaps 4 weeks or more.
We gave him raw egg- mostly albumen- in his mouth, also 2 drops undiluted cordial, and a fresh fly and some water in his mouth. We moisten him and he is lying very still but he blinked. He is alive but virtually comatose. What else can we give him? We have grapes for some sugar also. He is currently between some damp towels.


I have no info regarding his cage etc because at present he is just in a plastic tub, no lights, ambient temperature, about 24 Celsius

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks, LizardSOS

He’s needs to see a vet. And not having lights is gonna makehim worse. Its good that your trying everything you canand you rescued him.

Not too familiar with this species but I know that it definitely needs UV light, so at least set up a full-spectrum fluorescent lamp over the tank (with a shady spot) Provide some vegetation and mist the leaves, so it can lick off the moisture.
