I keep a colony of dragons in a large room like a pen and there are 3 males loose in there right now. Two are sub adults and one is an adult, I rarely even see them noticing one another. On the outside of the dragon room, I have a male that likes to roam the house. Every once in a while one of the caged males works the pin out of the doors from repetetive shaking and gets out. They do exactly what the others said, beard displays, circle fight all flattened out, and one eventually runs off. Worse damage ever is a tail bite. I do bring more dominant males in the room with the girls on occasion and the submissive males only fight when they are encounted by the dominant male, they don't run out to pick a fight of their own. Its more the dominant male is just pushing them around to show them whos boss, if they run off they get left alone, if they stand up they circle and tail bite. Its all about territory and females, although the males sometimes seem more interested in each other than they are the females. Frustrating but so true.
