    So I just got a diablo blanco recently as a hatchling, maybe because of the red eyes and the age, his eyes are are mostly closed. So I wonder if he is able to eat at all if he constantly has his eyes closed. I tried offering him mealworms and he won't take it which shouldn't be the case as the seller told me it was eating and ready to go. I haven't tried all the techniques yet, I though it would be good ask for suggestions first.

    I'm not at all knowledgeable on Leo's but some quick questions to answer that will save time when someone who is more experienced jumps in.

    How old is your leo?

    How long have you had your leo?

    What's your set up?

    Can you post pics of your set up and leo.

    My leo is about a month or so. I've had him for 3 days. He is in a plastic tub with a hide he rarely comes out of (maybe at night) and he has a water bowl

    What temp is the warm side? Cool side? Is he defecating?

    He defecated twice since I got him, the hot side is 90-95 and the cool side is 75-80 so temp is perfect

    Hopefully someone knowledgeable will read through the thread then be able to give you some advice.
