Default any help plz

my beardie has had a black beard for atleast four days now he has only just shed but today i just looked at him and his beard is still black and his whole body has gone proper dark. ive noticed aswell he keeps blowing out his beard quite alot recently aswell he is about 9 months old. also he tried to jump out of his viv a couple of times just now as i opened the door.
any help as why plz. or is this normal.
stacked on top i have another viv with my other beardie i am 80% sure she is female do you think this is affecting him. they are the same age and from the same family but he is twice as big as her for some reason.

Don't worry hun this is completely normal your lil boy is growing up. He's displaying to you that he scary and should'nt be eaten. His beard shoudl be black as this is a sign of maturity and he blows it out to look bigger than he is. Hope this helps x

Default black beard

Yeah don't worry, he's just showing that he's sexually mature & he's the dominant male, the only thing to watch is if you have him in a vivarium with other males he will try to fight them or they'll can stop eating & it really stresses them out, i've seen less dominant males pull their "male bits" up into their body.
He should calm down soon
Good luck
