Hey,

Has anyone ever seen their Cham sleeping upside down? I have a 4 month old Panther and this morning I noticed he was sleeping completely upside down as if you turned the branch while he was sleeping. Tail is coiled tightly and he doesn't look any different from his normal sleeping state except that he is upside down.

I initially thought the branch had turned while he was sleeping but it didn't.

Strange.

No worries... my cham does that as well! They sleep in some weird positions. You wonder how they are getting any rest at all.. after all they must be holding on for dear life ;)

Lol! I guess that counts as up side down as well, now you got me thinking what the original poster meant. Lol! I guess after reading a little closer... :p

My little dude sleeps vertically too, hanging onto his dripper. It's like his little cuddle buddy..He doesn't sleep without cuddling it and if not the dripper, a leaf! ^^

It's probably like a hammock effect, maybe a little bit of rocking to sleep? Probably feels really cool. Lol

Homer did that once. (upside down sloth like) I found that his sleep/low lighting response is quite fast, If hes moving about when the lights go off, he will freeze in place till morning!
Consequently I now make sure there is some low level lighting in the room at that time,
he will recognise the drop in brightness and prepare himself for sleep in a comfortable spot, then I can darken the room entirely.
Generally he finds a place before lights out but occasionally he seems to 'lose track of time' while hunting a previously unnoticed cricket or something and gets caught out! :)

Tonight mine has also assumed the upside down on top screen position. Yesterday she was sideways on a branch, instead of being just right side up or upside down on it, she was completely sideways..... weirdo.
