The vet I see is the same guy that looks after the ones in the zoo here and is up to speed with everything that's going on. He is drinking with no apparent problem that I can see, and all his other habits are still happening... just not eating. I've presented a few specimens to him in hand and he goes after them after a few minutes.... but not in the food servers or cage..... I'm starting to think that it is a boredom thing..... I'll keep ya'll posted on what happens..... and thanx again for all the help...
and sorry for not being more specific about knowing more than I led on
