Definitely nothing to worry about! One of my joeys keeps her tail cured the majority of the night. Gliders will also twist their tails around when they're going to attempt to carry something, like a bracelet. :O)

This is what I was going to say!

You may have a tail carrier in your hands!

My Mollie curls her tail for about 10 days every month,we feel that this is when she is going thru her heat cycle.
She is evidently letting us know that she is going to be going into heat,& the tighter the curl,the closer she is.
When she is over it,her tail'relax's'.

I came here specifically to ask this.

In a year and a half I've never seen either of my girls curl their tails.. I just went to go play with them and I had like a panic attack because I'd never seen it I lightly rubbed it to uncurl it and it curled right back.

Relieved to know it's fine - I think it's odd I've never ever seen them do that before.

Thank you all for this information.
.
Just this morning my bear had her tail in a circle. I was worried since I had only seen it straight.
I was worried that my "biter" fat boy had injured it.
.
It didn't seem to affect her and when I straightned it she didnt react and then it just curled up again when she jumped.
