Hey,
i've had my beardie for a month now and on monday night he started acting really weird. He went jet black on his beard, didnt puff up but started bobbing, sometimes very violently and sometimes gentely and has been doing this everyday since, sometimes once or twice sometimes very regularly. Anyone have any ideas what this could mean or how to solve the problem?

He's about 8 months old, has a 4x1.5x1.5 viv and is still eating fine.
Any replies would be appreciated.

Thanks.

he's reaching sexual maturiry, this is mating behaviour. He will be fine it's natural for them to do this! Females wave their front legs, males head bob!

Oh and also, a little bit of research into bearded dragons and you would have known this. This information is in the most basic care sheet...so maybe a little research is needed before buying pets and panics like this wouldn't happen!

Ok thanks, i knew it was signs of showing off to a mate but i was just concerned as he is on his own, didn't realise he would do this with or wothout a mate.

Sometimes they'll do it spontaneously, especially around the age of maturity. Seeing their own reflection can also set them off, as can just seeing someone moving around the room!
