 I found my new, young uromastyx on his back. Please help!

I brought home a uromastyx last night. He’s around 6 months old. At the pet store they fed him crickets and veggies. I’ve been feeding him greens, veggies, and some bird seed. I know not to feed him insects. The hot side of the tank was about 100 degrees today, and the cool side was in the mid-eigtys. I am going ti buy a better heat emmiter tomorrow. I also have the 10. UVB bulb.

He basked today for a while, walked around his tank, but hasn’t eaten. And tonight at 2:15 a.m. I found him laying on his back in his cave that he slept in last night. I removed the cave and he wiggled his toes and moved his feet but didn’t move. I pet his belly a little, and still didn’t move. I gently nudged him back on his right side and he’s not just laying there...

I’m soo worred :( Please help me. Is this normal? What could be the issue if not?

Let him get used to his surroundings and new enclosure cause almost all reptiles won’t eat until they aren’t stressed anymore

Okay wow so I came home today to find him eating! I am so happy :) I also bought a heat emmiter and he should be happier now too. I am so glad he’s okay. Still don’t know how he ended up on his back last night, but as long as he’s okay not.
