:It's got to be the 30 gallon tank. He is trying to thermoregulate so he's hiding to get cool.

Hi Dana and All.... yeah that's what I figured.... He's just way too hot....Also the stunted growth....I missed that point...
Yes it is very small for a year old.....I know that the one baby that I kept from those that I bred is bigger than average but this guys baby should be bigger...Good point.

Humidity is too high I think..... plus temps too intense all over....Lower the wattage of the basking bulb,move it right over to one side........lower humidity.....Feed on a daily basis...little and often...get a new cage under construction ASAP....and make sure your UVB tube is NEW! Put another couple of branches in the 30 Gallon tank to give somewhere else to climb on the cooler side....Once this guy moves up to a bigger cage with better gradients you should see a difference.....
Well that's my opinion anyway.....
Regards all
Suggs
