She maybe wants away from the male hun. My male would not give my female a rest he was always on top of her I had to seperate them in the end cause though it looks nice to see them together a madly testosteroned male beardie is enough to run away from.

I would suggest giving ya female a break hun and seperating cause whilst you not looking old test head will be torturing her.

I've got to agree with what's already been said - the male has probably got to sexual maturity and the onset of summer has got him into breeding mode. From the sounds of things the female is less than impressed.

Generally situations like this will just get worse and worse through the summer - you need to get them separated asap and let them live separately unless you want to breed them. Even then, you should only put them together for a few weeks, then keep them separate. Beardies don't need company and do just fine on their own.
