this is very normal..u got a new baby and those are two big reasons for him not to act normal..
1- new
2- baby
he is probably shy and doesn\'t want to be seen a lot..maybe he\'s not feeling safe too at the moment..this is in ur case but usually when turtles don\'t bask then u have to check the temps..the basking area might be too hot or too cold

ok he\'s getting used to u then..step 1 is done..step 2 is keep something in there so he can eat anytime he feels he wants to..just be patient cz i know it\'s much easier to make him eat when he has a mate..i always had a couple and my newer turtle had the guts to try food when he saw the other one eating from my hand
