Should my bearded dragons be separated?

I own two bearded dragons. Ones a female and the other is a male. They were in an enclosure together until about 30 minutes ago when I saw them I think fighting. The girl was chasing the boy and he started bobbing his head and his beard was black. And it almost looked like she tried to bite him maybe I’m not too sure. I’ve had them for almost 2 years now and they’ve never done that. Should I keep them separate from now on?

Yes he is stressing her out- has she had babies yet? Dragons should never be kept together unless you are breeding them- and after the deed is done they should be separated

No she hasn't had babies. But thank you this has helped. This is stressing me out just as much as her lol.

Never ever put beardies in a enclosure together because Bearded dragons are very territorial and They see other dragons as a threat if they were babies when you first got them and were put together then back then they probably thought it was normal but Now they are either trying to mate or they are just plain out trying to kill each other or trying to say who’s the boss

Hi there,

Once signs of aggression show, it's usually best to separate. That's the problem with cohabitation, they can be fine for years, and then one day they aren't. Luckily nothing serious came of it.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
