QnA on Bearded dragon sleeping positions

Bearded dragons are one of the more common pet lizards, so it's no surprise that people have different ideas on how to keep these reptiles healthy and happy. One popular method is to provide a basking area where the dragon can sunbathe, but many people also keep bearded dragons in their homes by providing them with a variety of sleeping positions.

Bearded dragons will often sleep on their stomachs if they're in an enclosure that allows them enough space. This is because they like to feel close to their surroundings and they feel safer when they're close to other animals or objects in their environment. Bearded dragons who live outside typically sleep on their backs, although some owners report success with keeping them on their sides as well.


    Bearded dragons normally sleep on their stomachs, but they may also sleep in a variety of different postures. In the wild, some bearded dragons may sleep vertically in a tree. So it's not a leap to imagine some of them sleeping upright in their cage, although without the benefit of a tree.

    What kind of bedding do bearded dragons prefer?

    Bearded dragons like blankets, but they don't receive much from just enveloping themselves in bedding. Reptiles are cold-blooded, which means they can't produce heat. If you keep your bearded dragon wrapped in a blanket for too long, it will get colder rather than warmer.

    Is it okay if your bearded dragon sleeps on your shoulders?

    It's perfectly OK for your bearded dragon to sleep on you, but it's not a good idea for you to do so. While you're still asleep, they may wake up and get into trouble. Your dragon could take advantage of the chance to consume something they shouldn't.

    What is the best way to tell whether your bearded dragon is sleeping?

    You can detect whether your bearded dragon is brumating by looking for the following signs: I'm getting more sleep. Appetite dwindled. I'm going to bed sooner. Taking refuge in the shade. Pooping less (as a result of eating less) and so on.

    Is sleeping vertically usual for bearded dragons?

    This is a normal behavior, and as long as you're sure your beardie isn't burying himself to avoid a strong light or another bearded dragon, you shouldn't be concerned.

    When my bearded dragon sleeps, why does he lie flat?

    When bearded dragons lie flat, they're attempting to acquire more heat from the ground or other surface they're resting on by using "thermal conductivity," which is the process of heat traveling through various materials and into the dragon's body. Raise the temperature in the room.

    Is it necessary for bearded dragons to have a comfy area to sleep?

    Some bearded dragons like to sleep in hammocks, blankets, rolled-up t-shirts, or their own beds. Others will burrow in and feel comfortable using a wood, a hide, or a layer of sand.
