Spending time at cool side of viv. Why?

My 8 year old male has chosen to spend most of the time on the opposite side of his viv, which is the cool side.
This is unusual for him. He’s eating/pooping as usual, except pooping in the viv. He has trained me to take him to a sink with water and then poops. He waits at the front nearest to the glass door. The last couple of months he just poops inside the viv.
All the temps/lights/uvb are correct and haven’t changed except the Reptisun 10.0 is changed every 6 months.
Is this behavior consistent with older age?
Thank you.

Sounds like it- your uvb is a long tube and inside the tank? Is it a T 5 or T 8

After he eats.
He spends more time (wherever he’s in his home 😊)
sleeping. It’s not brumating season. So is it a sign of older age? He certainly is living up to their name “lazy lizards”.
ok so its good hes basking after he eats - its when hes not basking after he eats - could be a sign of old age- I will have our vet tech mod on here look at your post she can give you more insight on him than I

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
