what does it mean when a beardie stretches his throat and pushes out its spikes around his chin?

is it a dominance thing or is he just pushing down some food?

i did notice a bit of shed skin around his mouth but im not sure if he had just finished or started shedding cos ive been away and my parents were looking after him.

his is a bit stressed at the mo cos i just changed the viv decor abit.

It can be a dominance thing, a defensive thing, an "I'm feeling slightly uneasy" type of thing - sometimes if they've eaten a lot or drunk a lot you'll see them doing it...

Is it just doing it briefly then relaxing, or is it holding its beard out for a while?

he would stretch it out abit then relax it and do it again. i backed off abit and he did stop. went back again and he did a realy big stretch and held if for a few seconds with alittle sharp head nod. it was early in the morning and i dont think he had eaten that morning.
