[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

So i have had my bearded dragon for about 3 months now and he has always been happy and rarely had problems with him except for the fact that im always paranoid haha. But sunday i noticed that he started getting a black beard and a bit black above his chest. Sometimes i wud come into the room and he wud puff up or something. But when i pet him or take him out it immediately goes away. He starts running around like crazy fast. Or falls asleep someqhere cozy. His apetite has increased a bit and i was feeding him phoenix worms all week up until sunday i fed him crickets and since sunday hes has stress marks sometimes. Or he will have a black beard or be puffed up but when i take him out hes fine his poop is fine. Can anybody plz help me with this i think soon im gunna have stress marks! :(

Do you know for sure he is a boy? It really sounds like normal male behavior, especially if he is around 4-6 months old. Dragons have a bit of puberty like behavior, they get grumpy or moody.
As long as he is eating/basking/pooping normal, you don't need to worry. Make sure he is getting plenty to eat and handle him everyday so he doesn't get bratty.
