what do i do to help my stressed steppe runner male lizard?

+1 vote
My steppe runner male lizard is, I believe, stressed bc of my other male lizard. He's really skinny, shedding but I have to peel him sometimes, won't open his eyes at all even when I pick him up, and also won't eat.  So today I bought a new tank and added new sand heater and everything. I seperated the lizards. He's,still Blahh though. What else can I do to help him?

You've done the right thing by separating the lizards. Make sure the new enclosure has the proper lighting and has a warm area (100 degrees fahrenheit) and a cooler area (75-80 degrees fahrenheit). Try introducing a different food, that may stimulate him. If your lizard is still not responding, the best thing to do is to take him to an exotic animal vet to make sure there are no health issues.
