    Hi treyclash,
    Sorry, I got distracted here at home and forgot to reply.
    The only time I have seen mine do that was when he was settling down on the sand, basically he was making an indentation in sand so his tummy was comfortable. I've never known him to do it in hand.
    Have you checked tummy for any thing that could be irriating her tummy, marks, cuts, or even dried skin. Check for any tiny red/black mites crawling on them, just in case.
    Other than that I honestly dont know, just keep an eye on her.
    Mine also will go to bed before the lights go off, same as my beardie he does same. That is normal so nothing to worry about there.

    Mine does that whenever i try to pick him up - he essentially flattens his stomach as much as possible and "shifts" his entire stomach off to one side away from my fingers. They are not "hands on" lizards and this is a pretty typical reaction to being handled...she is basically telling you to leave her alone :)
