Strange Beard Darkening

This is Tokyo when he came out of his hide after a few days of sleeping. His beard was a little dark when he came out because he was cold, but it had that weird pattern as if he's controlling what scales are dark and which aren't. Has anyone experienced this before?

I've seen them do similar before. That's a pretty drastic example though! New nickname: "Halfbeard" :lol:

That's a relief. Thanks, and I love the nickname :lol: . I got another picture of something weird he does actually : [Click image to enlarge]

There's a little bulge on his right side, and it rises and falls as he breathes. Could this be an issue? It doesn't always happen, but usually after food or at random.

It might just be food in his digestive tract. Does the bulge appear and disappear? Or is it always there?

He hasn't had food in a while since he just came out of brumation in that picture, but it comes and goes.
