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.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
