My beardie periodically keeps blowing himself up & inflating his throat.

What does this mean?

Hi Manda,

Not really. He seems to do it every now & again mainly under his basking lamp.

sounds like hes trying to be dominant, is he "bobbing" his head too? he may be trying to increase his surface area while he's basking so that he can get more rays (so to speak)... or maybe he fancies you and is trying to court you!! :wink:

there is nothing to worry about honest all beardys do it it mainly in the mornings just like we stretch :) i think inflating is the wrong word to use

My beardie used to do that - my monitor does it sometimes when he's feeling in an anti-social mood - thinks it'll scare me off :roll:
