Half black bearding?

Hello, 3 times yesterday. And once today my bearded dragon has had a sliver of her beard be dark while the rest of her looked bright. I know the rest of her beard can go dark because I saw it go dark when she puffed up yesterday. And, very slightly dark at some points yesterday as well. Does anyone know why this is?

I’m no expert but she might be stressed my beared dragon does that when he stressed sometimes. But I want to add I’m no expert.
Ok, thank you very much!!! I have no idea what might be stressing her out. She has had some weird poops maybe that could be. But, I wouldn’t know. She doesn't do it all the time. Does that mean something isn’t always stressing her out? Or would you think it means something’s been bothering her all the time?

I know one time she did it after a yawn.

From what I've heard sometimes they turn dark. Mine turns dark if she wants to be warmer and then turns her colors back after a little bit. But idk. Do you have any other pets that she can maybe see or is it just her?

Just her. She did it twice today so far. Every time she has done it so far it has lasted 1-5 minutes. Then went back to normal. She tends to do it when she is sitting on the ground in the middle of her tank too. Thank you very much!!!

She did possibly get mad at me yesterday. She stared at me then puffed out a little bit. Other than that both times today when it happened, no one was around when it started.

They turn their body and beard darker to soak up more sun.

A little bit greyish might also be normal, my boy looks like that most of the time. They shift their colour a lot for various reasons.

It could also be some kind of mating behaviour but idk if females also do turn thwir beards darker

Ok, thank you very much!!! This morning it was a bit dark on the side again. But, it didn’t look black. It just looked the bit grayish. So, I was thinking it might have just been his color this morning!

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
