Bearded Dragon Head Bobbing Behavior


Bearded Dragon Head Bobbing

Bearded dragon head bobbing is part of normal Bearded dragon behavior. It is part of their territorial behavior and includes some form of arm waving and black beard behavior.

Why Does My Bearded Dragon Bobs His Head?

During mating however, a male will often inflate his beard and show aggressive behavior towards other males and potential breeding females. This Bearded dragon breeding behavior goes together with head bobbing movements, opening of the mouth and the darkening, to a black to gun metal black colour, of the beard and large parts of the body. Males and females might also increase their enthusiasm when there is a lot of movement going on around them i.e. people activities around displaying units.
