I've had two Z. maximus (Giant Madagascar Plated Lizards) for a few years now. One is male, the other female (confirmed). While both animals are very healthy, the female has taken to being very aggressive to the male. This usually amounts to a great deal of chasing around the large cage. Although the health of the male does not appear to have suffered as a result, and no noticeable injury has been inflicted, he eventually burrows down into the substrate for long periods, apparently just to escape her aggression.
Is this normal and 'acceptable' behavior? I do not want to have to separate the two animals, but will if necessary.
Thanks for any valuable advice.
