Why is he sleeping like this

hes been like this for about an hour and a half unmoving. Is it because it's too hot in the tank? He's on the "cool side" but my stick on thermometer on the warm side is reading about 30 celcius. I'd turn off the infrared lamp overnight but I'm worried it'll get too cold on the side he's sleeping on :/

My bearded dragon did that a lot as a hatchling. They usually grow out of it though. I'd recommend getting a hammock to put in the cage for him to sleep on too.
I found my baby sleeping like that one evening after his lights went out. Stayed there for a few hours before I slowly lowered him to a prone position before I went to bed. It was the weirdest thing. He was like a limp noddle when I lowered him and barely opened his eyes and shifted his position once I had him down. Like a kid who's played hard and just crashed into sleep in whatever position they are in. lolol

It seems they fall asleep anywhere!

they sleep in the weirdest positions, my boy is 11 months and sleep like that sometime. You can purchase a Hammock. A lot of beardies love them. I have one on the basking area and one on the cool side, but he don’t use them.

I’m going to order mine a hammock soon. He sleeps in a little tree I bought him when I first got him. He looks so uncomfortable. I put a Kleenex box with tissues in it and he never sleeps anywhere else but his tree so it must be comfortable!

He stayed like this until I turned his light back on in the morning
