Oh dear, I feel you on that, a few months ago Rocket started head bobbing, and now like Loki, He does it nonstop. My poor female beardies having to watch my two dorks across them lol.

Actually For my 3 males, There's always a bit of a pecking order. My largest and longest Beardie, Loki Surprisingly enough is at the BOTTOM of the pecking order.
Whenever I have my Smaller Semi disabled Rescue Beardie Mulder out, Just even holding him near Loki's tank will make Loki immediately flatten out, suck in his beard and start arm waving! It's the weirdest thing.

And then my one year old Rocket doesn't seem to really care. But it seems That Mulder, my newest Beardie.... Is at the top, he's the Alpha.

Same thing with Thor back when we had him, He was also a weak disabled Rescue, But when I brought him to repticon, EVERY dragon he saw would arm wave and surrender when he was near, it was the funniest thing!
