I had a newt named Merlin who went on hunger strike whenever his cage was cleaned. I eventually learnt to just replace the water and let him wallow in a bit of his own filth and he’d eat. So maybe there’s some other factor for why he won’t eat?
I didn’t change anything, I don’t really know. I’m tired of his amphibian bullshit.
I’m just happy that after 2 hours he ate ONE LARVA
