Why does my beardie lay like this??

Postby Hjballinger » Thu Feb 20, 2020 12:26 pm

So I’ve noticed that my dragon, Simba, tends to lay/ sleep really weird! I always get worried that his arm is twisted or broken when I see him like this but he seems fine. Does he just find it comfortable?? He also likes to let one leg hang off the side of his log when basking, I’m assuming it’s because he finds it comfy so is this the same type of thing??

Why? Because he CAN. 😆 They sleep/lay in crazy positions! There's a thread here somewhere filled with pics of crazy beardie positions. It'll crack you up! 😆

He's fine--they all do it. Ever had a cat or dog? They do the same thing. They're just being casual & letting it all hang out... :D

When they have one back leg extended it is called the "sexy leg"

That’s so funny😂😂. He always has one leg hanging straight off his log or anything he’s on, it’s so funny, it just dangles there😂
