newbie question


New Member
Hi everyone, I have just got my first veiled. His name is Leon. I got him home yesterday afternoon. My ? is how long will it take for him to trust his new home? As soon as I put him in the cage he climbed up a vine and hasn't come down yet. I put some crickets in yesterday but don,t think he ate. He is kind of just hanging out in one place. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? I think he is about 2-3 months old. His body is about 2 1/2" long.
