Heya, in my opinion the petshop guy hasn't given you the full/correct info, as in the other reply, wax worms are more of a treat and contain more fat rather than protein so the main diet should consist of locusts and crickets ('dusted' with calcium and vitamins). I would also suggest that you raise your temps, the basking spot should be between 100 and 110 degrees F, i think thats about 40 degrees C. Lower temps might be making him more lethargic, and cause him to loose his appetite a bit. It is likely that he isn't particularly interested in food because he is still settling in (plus temps), you also might wana try locusts as he might just not like crickets (mine refuses to touch them!lol). good luck
