Generally, yes. From my experience (and I know all beardies are different), Freddy is rarely running around the tank or glass surfing; instead, he mostly chills in a spot he likes the best that day. Is 98-105 the basking spot? Is this preferred spot in the basking area or the cool side? Is she just laying there, lethargic or sleeping? Or is she sitting up alert in that area?
Correct, 98-105 is her basking spot directly under uvb and near the basking lamp. The larger rock is the lower temp and the small rock she rests her arm or head on is warmer. There are hotter and cooler options but this is where she likes. Her eyes are often closed but she is holding herself up. She adjust a little, turns around, some sexy leg… I’m just curious what juvenile activity level is typically. I hope she’s happy!

That sounds like very normal beardie behavior to me, based on my research and limited experience (I'm not quite an expert since Freddy is my first beardie but I've been dedicated to learning beardie behavior over these last 2.5 years, as it sounds like you are doing now!) From juvenile to now, Freddy has always been pretty chill in the viv like you're describing (we went through a brief glass surfing period, but that ended)... except, of course, when the food comes! But yeah, his main activity is during our short (and obviously closely monitored) play times outside the viv; that's when he'll go for a little run, try to find somewhere to hide, or jump around a little. Oh, and if you're concerned about Sushi's inactivity now...just be ready for her first clutch of eggs! And brumation! The lack of movement is amazing (and a little scary) but just remember that it's totally normal. You're doing great! Keep up the good work.
