    This is the second night he, (I’m assuming since he’s still a baby) has slept like this. He’s breathing I’ve made sure multiple times.. I don’t notice any other strange behavior. Do bearded dragons just sleep in weird positions? Or is mine extra special?

    Both! :-D
    Dragons do sleep in all sorts of odd, uncomfortable-looking positions. But of course your baby is extra special - they all are. That's why we love them. :0)
    (That glass-standing sleep position is actually fairly common and completely normal)

    Nighttime

    NO COLORED LIGHTS! No red lights! No 'moonlight' lights!

    If temperatures in your house drop bellow 65 at night, you will want a CHE.

    It MUST be used with a ceramic socket dome. No plastic sockets! CHE's get very hot, and are a big fire hazard if housed in a dome fixture that doesn't have a ceramic socket.

    For good health I recommend you read on this forum under General Discussion the Newbies Guide -- there is a ton of info under that thread

    I've got a cute little weirdo too -- Puff has been scaring me daily with the strange ways he sleeps! (I've had him 11 days), so you are not alone :)

    All lights should be on for 12 hrs and off for 12-- no colored lights they disturb their sleep and are harmful to their eyes and can cause long term eye damage-- when I first got Hiccup he would sleep in his cactus-- he is way to big for that now-- so yes they do sleep weird

    In his cactus?! Lol! For what it's worth, my lights are now on a timer, but I took this picture immediately after turning lights on in the morning. Our house is warm enough that I am not using lights at night.

    And that is great because they need to have darkness for their metabolism to slow down--- better rest - if you need heat at nite like winter please get a Ceramic Heat Emitter CHE -- they produce no light only heat and come in different wattage bulbs--- I use one in the winter in mine keeps tank around 70 or so

    What kind of lights are you using exactly? You should have one T8 HO UVB tube light inside the cage hanging from the top and one basking heat light, there should not be any colored lights (red, or blue) at all
