What does this posture mean?

Tail curled upright... Good? Bad? Indifferent?

Happy or curious is what I have read in the past. I know they do that when they explore new places.
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!

Hmmm... nothing new to explore or be curious about, but he does have a belly full of num-nums & cilantro (Happy?) :D
Alert works for me too. :lol:

He was up on his tower for a while doing his smug, "Leave me alone... I'm basking!" thing, but now he's back down on the floor, intently studying one of the Tillandsia high up on the back wall...

Alert is good. This world needs more lerts! :laughhard:

I was going to take him out at "lights-out" for a taming cuddle, but he'd already found his spot for the night. He looked out at the flashlight with that, "You're going to mess with me, aren't you?" look.
I couldn't do it. I don't want a paranoid lizard afraid to go to sleep lest he be molested (not that way). :|
