    Overly horny male

    2 months ago I adopted 2 pygmy bearded dragons (a male and a female). They have been together for about 4 years. My understanding is that they have always been kept together as I wasn't told any different when getting them from previous owners. Ever since i have had them, the male has always been really horny (bobbing his head constantly, biting her neck and chasing her). I'm getting quite concerned that he is being overly horny and aggressive with the female as she has started getting bite marks and blood on her neck. I'm not sure if this is normal behaviour or what to do to stop it. Please help.

    Hi! It sound just like my two, but I don't keep them together. I really don't allow them out together unless closely supervised. I am seriously giving thought to getting them spayed as I didn't supervise quite close enough and have 12 hatchlings to find homes for. So, be careful! Is she laying?

    When we first got them her belly looked quite large so i thought she was going to lay, but she hasnt since i have had her. i'm unsure how long it takes for them to lay. But she has had clutches before with the previous owners. Thank you for your advice.

    Separate them asap as all this behavior will stress the female to death
