What exactly do you mean by coughing? Does he have a black beard and/or stress marks when he does this?
Could tell me exactly what type of bulb you have?
I know that sometimes my beardie will puff himself up for no reason randomly and them basically have a huge yawn. He is still sitting there with his bright happy colors. :roll: . Gave me a heart attack and a half when he did that the first time. Someone told me it's how they stretch out.

Hes kind of hissing. But i am able to hold him and pet him. His beard does go black. It started last night. he had done this before a few weeks ago but he only did it once.

Im just worried as he has been doing it more reguarly today. His buld is 150 watt Exo-Terra Sun Glo spot lamp.

Was there anything around to scare him at all? Do you have a cat or any other type of animal in the house?

we have a fish tank. but thats always been there. he seemed to stop last night but hes doing it again today. he seems to be eating ok although he will only eat a few crickets. yesterday he only manged 2.

hes also pooping everyday, which is odd as he usually poops every second day.

What are the temps in his tank and what type of thermometer are you using to measure them? What's the humidity level? Is it possible that he ate a cricket that was too large for him?

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
