Feet sticking up?

Hey, all!

We've had our beardie Gary for a couple weeks now, and we are guessing he's around 2 months old, since we rescued him from Petco. Everything's been going well aside from a couple of things. This isn't one of the more serious ones, but I'm just curious if other people are experiencing it as well.

Gary started standing with his feet pointing up all of the sudden. He doesn't do it all the time, and it was really recent that he started doing this. I just want to make sure there's nothing wrong considering I'm so paranoid with him being my first reptile to own. Here's the best picture I could get. There's more stuff in his tank, by the way, I just took it all out while we were feeding him.

One of my guys did that too and I wasn't sure why. If you can give me details about your setup (tank size, lights you're using, temperatures, etc) I'll be glad to review it and see if anything stands out as a possible issue.

repticarpet
humidity stays around 30-35%
100-115 degree basking side

we do dust all his food with calcium
sprayed with water daily, baths every once in a while

In the wild lizards do it when the sand is hot, so carpet could hold a bit of heat like sand does. It looks like the light is shining down right there where he is , heating up the carpet.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
