I just got my 3 month old bearded dragon last week and she sleeps and sometimes basks with her hind legs fully extended behind her. I know this is a sign of impaction but she had been using the bathroom regularly. She is moving around just fine and doesn't have any problems with mobility so I was just wondering if it could be something else or if it is just comfortable for her.
lol yah it's normal. both of my dragons will sleep with their back legs and front legs straight back. When they're sleeping it looks like their nose pulled them to the position they're in and their legs dragged behind lol. I think that it's when they stop Using their back legs (like they're paralized) that it's a sign of a bad impaction.
I thought the same thing the first day we brought ours home he ate a bunch of small crickets and I thought OMG he is paralized because the crickets were too big! I soon learned that was his favorite position.
It's totally normal,i call it the "torpedo position" because he does it when he swims in the bath,he just propells himself with his tail,they also do it when sleeping/basking,its just like stretching our legs,it feels good for them
