    I am no expert but this is my experience and what I was told.

    Why does my unknown sex beardie head bob and arm wave?
    It could be a male, sometimes you cant tell unless you look under the tail, there are many sites, youtube included that show you how to properly sex your dragon. If you still cant tell then post some pics up with the tail upwards (please look at how to do it first, it can hurt the dragon if done incorrectly.) If it is a male or female, a head bob or arm wave could be either signalling dominance or submission, my girl hand waves when she is feeding as well so it depends on what they are doing.

    How can i make my other female beardie interested in mating?
    I dont understand why you are trying to make her, anyway what makes you think she is not interested? What I mean is, what are the actions she is doing, e.g walking away, ignoring him etc.

    Why does the male bite the female neck and lets go after 20 seconds?
    How old is your male, maybe he is immature, young or maybe he is inexperienced. Sometimes females bite each others necks, as a sign of dominance or sexual frustration. How is he biting her neck? - Meaning is he biting her and shaking his head, is he biting, moving his tail in to position but nothing happens, etc?

    More info please :)
    Plus I would love to see some pics, I love beardies :)
