My dragon seems to like to be cold.

Starting in July when I take Ember out of her tank to run around, after walking the perimeter of the room sometimes she goes to the A/C vent and lays next to it or just stands in front of it and stays there until I pick her up. Also she goes in the bathroom and seems to like the cold floor even though her claws slip on it.
At first I was thinking her cage might be too hot because her basking spot got to 103. So I turn it down to 97 since she is almost a year old and does not need it as hot as a younger dragon. After I changed the temp she still likes being cold and also likes to lie down on plastic bags.
So is my dragon crazy for wanting to be cold :?:
Here are some pictures of Ember near the A/C vent for proof.



I don't know anything about dragons liking to be cold, but I feel like mine likes it too, never laid by ac vent though. But outside of the tank he is much more active. i hope someone can answer this for you though.

When Lexi is out of her tank, its like a cool down period for her, it seems. she will go near the AC vent sometimes, or crawl into a darker spot and cool down and take a nap. thats the way i look at it, like a little reprieve from the heat, a nice little cool down :)

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
