zeus, hades
i have two beardies, one significantly younger than the other, the oldest, hades, is five years old, and the younger one, zeus, is around 8 months (i think?)

they both have their own enclosures of course, but there will be times where i will look at the two and notice hades bobbing his head and making eye contact with the other, zeus responds with eye contact and a wave. typically, hades will run around his enclosure, bop, run, bop, and then go to his basking spot where the bopping ends. the two ignore each other typically for about an hour and then the same thing happens again, i've tried putting a piece of paper in the way of hades where he typically begins bopping, but that does not stop him.

my main questions are, is this a concern?
if so, how can i stop it?
will this be concerning down the road? like in a few years?
can this stress one or both and lead to health problems?

when i began typing they had just started this little dance of theirs
and as i am typing now, hades is distracted, and zeus is faced away, so i can assume that these usually last around 2-3 minutes

Dragons should not see each other-- it stresses them out too much- I would get the tanks separated in another room or turn them so they can't see each other or get something on the out side to cover their view

I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
