Aggressive Peter's Banded Skink

I own two banded skinks that I house together, a male and a female, as I'm trying to breed them. Tonight's feeding was interesting as they got really aggressive with each other as I fed them worms. They tug-a-war with a couple ripping them in half and my female bit the nose and tail of my male skink. I will be separating them for future feedings. The main reason for my forum is if anyone has experienced this problem? And yes, I'm positive that it's a male and female as I'm very good with sexing this species and the person I bought from confirmed the sexes as well.

I suggest separating them and only bringing them together briefly for romantic encounters in mating season.

At the very least feeding them separately .

Else you risk serious injury.

Ya I've never seen them be aggressive toward one another when they are exploring the tank. I'm gonna separate them though for future feedings
