A change may induce a new reaction and a re-establishment of dominance, but it seems pretty odd. Assuming they are a pair, maybe the move just really excited the male? I'd definitely keep a close eye on them. I know in the Reptiles magazine article it stated they keep their Dumerils together year round, but I personally think it's best to keep them seperate and only introduce when attempting to breed. Yeah, they got breeding results, but so do those that keep them seperated. The real difference is in ease of maintaining the animal and the risk reductions that comes with keeping them seperated. Even feeding them in seperate enclosures can bring about negative consequences once they're put back into the enclosure together. A long time ago, I put two retics back together and found myself taking ones head out of the others mouth. That was not fun at all.
