Default Orange spotted agama

I have recently bought a orange spotted agama and he's just led in a corner and hasn't moved? Just wondering if this is normal or not?

Describe your setup (heat, lights, humidity, substrate, feeding, supplements, everything).

How recently?

The hot spot could be upped a little as long as it doesn't affect the cool end temperature. Sounds like it could be stress from the move, just leave him alone (or if in a busy area of the house cover his tank up) and provide food every couple of days. You may want to try locusts as you can leave them in there all the time.

Around 25C would be fine for the cool spot

You can but leave veg in there too. If they get hungry or thirsty they'll go for the lizards (particularly the eyes). Locusts don't tend to nip, neither do cockroaches.

You could have a 12hours:12hours light cycle. Some people change this throughout the year so 14h:10h in the summer and the other way round for winter.
