How do your beardies sleep? (when with you.)

How do your beardies sleep? (when with you.)

Postby Aquilist » Fri May 03, 2019 4:53 am

So, I want to hear some cute stories about how beardies act(particularly sleep,) when out of thrir tank.
Basically, my 3-month-old baby is out of his tank for the first time. Popcorn decided the best thing to do would be to crawl into my pyjama sleeve, curl up, and go to sleep. Very cute!
However, I now can't move my arm, due to tiny sleepy beardie, and typing one-handed takes ages. Anyway, what are some other adorable stories?

Generally they seek out cozy dark places where they feel warm and protected. A sleeve is a pretty popular option. When one of my guys was a baby he used to climb up to the top of my chest with his nose at my neck and fell asleep. My current guy doesn't really snuggle much with people but he'll find a corner and dock his nose with the corner of the wall and curl up to sleep. The image in my signature is Dundee sleeping on a game system underneath a shelf which was one of his favorite cozy spots in the house.

Cleo never seeks out a dark place , she'll go off to sleep as high as she can get on "her" piece of gumtree bark , or ontop the fake rock grotto.

Caesar likes to sleep on the warmed tile infront of or beside the fake hollow 1/2 log , and sometimes he'll go off to sleep standing up against side wall or in back corner in the cool zone of the rearing tub.

Peppa nearly always slept ontop her jumbo sized hubbahut.

Rex liked to go under his jumbo sized hubbahut and push the paper towels up to block the "entries" .

Puff liked to sleep under his jumbo sized hubbahut but always with his head poking out.

Toothless was like Rex only he'd drag the paper towels in with him in his mouth and used them like a blanket.

Don't get me started on how my skinks sleep. Very funny positions.

On me - my habit is to get them really relaxed on my tummy and lift the front of my t-shirt over them so only their head is not covered.

Usually I'll bring Falcor to bed for some night time snuggles, but he won't fall asleep until he's laying right on me. :,)

Only 4 nights at home so far, but Mario has slept:
-Splayed out on his basking rock
-Under the long branch that leads to his rock
-Twice right atop the "tree", about 8" under the 60w CHE

Gotta explore all the options!

Many, Many odd sleeping positions.

But here's a few odd ones I've photographed over the years. Well at least the ones I uploaded here. I have a huge folder on my phone purely dedicated to all the odd positions I see my dragons do but am too lazy to go through the troubles of posting.

This is literally the highest Mario can get! He was there when the lights went off and I thought, there's no way he's gonna sleep like that... surely he'll move...

I guess he proved me wrong! Was in the exact same spot this morning! :P

Drach likes to climb onto my shoulder when I sit on the couch so he can look out the window. He usually passes out up there after a few minutes; he must dream of eating, because I'll get the occasional lick on my neck 😂
My new baby Monkey, who I've only had for 24 hours now, napped during on the log about 2 inches from the ceramic heater, and apparently slept overnight on the side of the water bowl with toes IN the water lol
