Hi, More than likely due to the drop in temps because of winter.
Even though the heat may be the same as the summer that is being generated from heat matts etc, Leo's can still sense the difference.

Which will mean the food intake will be less than normal and will sleep and hide more.

Mine have stopped coming out before I go to bed now and are sleeping alot more. I only catch them at weekends now when I am up late.
Sometimes catch them out late evening, for a small stretch and yawn, then they go back to sleep.
In the summer they are out early evening, and alot more lively.

Then I only see them asleep with the legs streched out as you mention, very funny positions they have!!

I wouldn't worry at all.

Haven't had mine long but at the moment I don't see them at all until about 10pm and if the lights are off, then they come out.. slowly.. but they don't seem to mind being handled. Love their caves a bit too much I think! I can usually tempt my fattest female out in the day with a waxworm :D
