Stuffed Animal

Hi! I am new to this page and I am a new Beardie mom! I have always wanted one, and a family friend was looking for a new home for his! I have had him almost 2 weeks now! His name is Roku :)
Anyway, I read online that sometimes beardies like to have a stuffed animal to cuddle with in their enclosure. I got a small black mythical dragon stuffed animal a few days ago and put it in Roku's tank. Today, I saw him biting the arm of the dragon and dragging it around and then doing a few body twists (it reminded me of what gators do when they are trying to drown pray...). Is this okay? Is he just playing or is he angered/threatened/irritated with the toy? If so, I want to take it out! (Though he wasn't puffed up much...again I am very new to owning a beardie so maybe he was...)

I have a stuffed chameleon in Blazes tank and he doesnt even notice it - I have seen him sit on it once- not sure about the behavior yours is doing -- if hes eating it I would take it out

I'm new as well, but I have lots of experience with dogs. I wonder if he is possibly trying to mate with it?
