 Help Please!

Yesterday I bought home my Mountain Horned Lizard and he hasn’t eaten or really moved much in the past 24 hours. I think he may be sick, but I don’t know how to tell. He doesn’t go near the water either and we have the water moving. If there is any possibility someone could help me. Please message back.

for the first few days or so they may not eat. and the reason he hasn’t moved much is because he is not use to his new territory. i hear these guys are very territorial. i have one my self and I’ve been doing a lot more research on how to keep these guys and so far i like what i found, they eat harvester ants and other small insects Ants/Spiders/Crickets etc... ( any one correct me if I’m wrong) that’s all i can remember off the top of my head. but if you are really worried take him to the local reptile veterinarian. Make sure he has plenty of hiding space ( they like to hide.) and water, you may want a natural looking dish full of water for a bathing pool.
