Default Beardie Night time Stress Marks


when most beardies wake up in the morning are they usually very dark in colour and have stress mark on their belly which disappear when they heat up?

i believe the dark colouring is due to them trying to absorb as much heat as possible but havn't really heard anyone mention belly marks in a morning? This happens every night but she is eats fine, is really hyper and her usual self so just wondered whether these marks come about due to
a) some thing scaring her in the middle of the night
b) the temps being to low (they seem to stay around 73F which i believe to be ok???)
c) it is completely normal and im just wondering over nothing???

advice help greatly appreciated!
