The second is just over nine cm. They fight really bad when together so they are now separated. Thanks

Is it normal for males to fight. The larger one (the first photo) used to bully the little one. But now it seems to be the other way around. Shal I kept them separated ?
Thanks

Yes it's very normal for males to fight so keeping them separate is the best way to go.

I agree, both male.

Male, Testudo horsfieldii are especially aggressive, i'd separate them.

Even the females are, lots of head bobbing and pushing and shoving......I'm waiting for mine to get their varnished claws out on each other lol x
