Curled tail during the day

She has kind of been laying on the basking branch for two days and I’ve noticed her tailed curled up during the day. She doesn’t appear to be sleeping her eyes are wide open? Is this normal behavior or should I be concerned? I also attached a picture.

Sleeping during the day is a problem—not necessarily tail curling.

My panther did it the other day when he was really... angry (didn't want to go back in the enclosure).
Chameleons sleeping during the day is acutally severely bad, this happens because they actually give up and basically said “whoever you are, predator, you may catch and eat me, i give up.” Its a sign of severe stress and anger. Just to let ya know!
