It is a normal behavior...when they bunch up like that it usually means that they're nervous or scared. I normally see that when I open a t's cage or try to handle some of mine.

I think were all trying to understand what normal is for a G. rosea.:? I guess if its not in a death curl, its normal. LOL

I always thought T's did that to kinda shade their eyes or try to hide. But at one time or another, all my T's have done it, both the arboreals and the terestrials.

i usually see a curl like that immediately post-moult. sometimes they huddle against the side of the enclosure, too. i've just always accepted this as "normal" behavior
