I have had many of mine do it. It usually only involves the last inch or so of the tail. My geckos do it when they are really pissed off and can’t bite me (usually when I have their mouth tapes shut). I have also seen a couple of them use is as a warning before the bark too.

i think that’s a defensive action. they do that to draw predators to their tail instead since their tail is detachable.

they do it before they are about to bite, I think it is a distraction or a way to gain momentum? mine does it when he eats right before he strucks, well he did before his tail fell off......
