Yes please put some newspapers magazine pages construction paper on the outside of the back wall and sides- see if getting rid of the reflection helps w/ the behavior
He's been hugging his little log all day for two or three days. He'll go get some salad and will eat perfectly fine and occasionally walk around but he is desperate to get back inside and won't really leave his log.

We are planning on taking down the diamond paintings we have on the wall. We have like 30 framed ones and I think the reflections inconjuction with the bright colors of them is freaking him out lately.

Yes please take them out ----- please NO more out for him -- he needs to stay in his tank till he is older and more acclimated to his surroundings and tank --

Yeah, I took them out. Well, he's relatively well handled. We've had him right at a month and the guy we got him from said he handled them everyday and he's never been a huge fan of being out, just the last day or two, he hasn't wanted to be bothered so I think we're leaving him alone for a day or two, other than feeding and such.

Seems like i remember talking with you or your hubby about those painting a while back. Beardies have an extra cone in their eye, they see better than we do. Those could be the issue.

It was me, we couldn't decide if they were bothering him or just caught his attention. He stares at them with wide eyes, it seems. We're thinking it may be scaring him so we're going to take them down to see if it helps.

He definitely does. I think he isn't quite used to being in the living room. He looks at the high up cabinets, lights on the veilings and even the air vents like they're birds that are gonna swoop down and gobble him up, wild-eyed and head at a complete 90° angle.😅
