Blue, the Red Tegu - Not Eating

So now we're getting concerned because our baby red tegu hasn't eaten. We are going on 2 weeks now, since we brought him home. Is this okay or is our concern valid?
 
I have not notice poop and not sure about peeing. The water bowl gets low and we have refilled it multiple times. Not sure if it's from him drinking it, splashing around, or evaporation. The water is not on the heat sid . Maybe I need to put a game camera up for a day or 2.

Try to see if he is drinking because if he isn’t urates will block his system causing him to not eat and poop

Ok he may just still be a little stressed out or scared because he just came home with you not so long ago

They're generally not out for long anyway. Mine will bask and wander for a few hours a day. Four hrs is typical in the summer.
