Where does your beardie spend most of it's time?

I recently switched my substrate from sand to shelf liner. When he was on sand he used to bask almost all the time. Now that he is on the shelf liner he spends most of his time on the ground. After he eats he'll bask for an hour or so but then he'll go back onto the ground. is this normal and does anyone else's beardie do this? Also, where does your beardie like to hang out?

My dragon spends most of his time basking but he does lay on the ground often. Double check the temps to make sure it not too hot, is he digesting ok?

Dudley is usually on his basking platform, sleeping under his basking platform, or in his hommock. He never lays on the ground in the open though.

I would double check the temps too. If they don't want to bask very long, that usually means it's too hot.

Angie also prefers her temps a bit cooler than Flippie does. We have resorted to take out her hide during the day, or she bluntly refuses to come out - she is literally worse than a teenager and will stay under her blankie and sleep the whole day. Flippie likes hanging out on his branch, on top of the hide, or anywhere else he can see us from.

Bane spends 99% of the time on her branch. Astarte has about 6 different places she likes to sit throughout the day. On the hot end, she sits on her basking rock, floor beside her rock, under her hammock. On the cool end she has 2 different geodes that she sits on. And in the middle she has her duck.

Maynard seems to spend most of his time basking or chasing his reflection in the glass.

My plated lizard, Havoc, likes to bask on his log almost all day. When he isn't doing that he spends his time sleeping in his cave, he only moves when he is fed crickets.

They move from their logs, mainly on their warm sides of the vivs.

Basking for a bit under the lamp on one log and then moving to a nearby log.

my female beardie spends most of her time basking because the temps are 100/110.where does your beardie spend most of his or her time?

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
