What does this mean?

She was sitting like this for a bit and I thought it was a little odd so I snapped a pic

Then a short bit later she was exaggerating the pose more

🤷🏻‍♀️

I figure it might have to do with her new uvb tube (7 in from her) which is currently sitting in an open space I made by sliding the screen lid because I tried for about 2 hrs this morning to attach it to the inside of the screen but was unsuccessful. So it will sit like this for now until my husband gets home and can hopefully find some picture hanging wire he thinks he has.

Just FYI - I tried fishing line and zip ties and even tried rigging some paper clips strung together. The shoelaces we have will not fit through the screen holes, and the light/fixture gets hotter than I anticipated, so the only thing I think I will be comfortable using that I can think of is wire.

looks like shes absorbing the UVB rays --- if you have some stainless steel wire that is thin and bendable you can use that too - that is what I use for my UVB's but my husband got it and I dont know where he got it from other than work and I dont know what they use it for at work but I can find out-

What I like to use is a braided steal rope as it is very strong in a small size. You just need a nice way to secure it with crimps on the wire (example for both linked below). I have UVB fixtures that also have LEDs for more natural light that are just over twice the weight of a standard UVB only fixture and it holds them with ease.

I would actually say its much stronger than needed but it works really well.

I forgot to update! We actually ended up using.............paper clips, lol. I realized we could snap the little metal clamp/hanging things onto the fixture and it would be easier...but it still was more complicated than I realized it would be!

Of my 6 beardies I see this with the belly in 1 of them. Its something that tends to happen after eating, but only ŕeally shows when they climb up on something that is more vertical. Once mine comes down or moves to a horizontal position you wouldnt notice anything odd.
