male horsefields fighting

Hi. i have 2 male horsefield totoises who are now approx 6 years old. i bought them together and have housed them together for the last 3 years, however they have gone from being great pals to constantly fighting and have had to be separated. I just wondered if this will be a permanant thing or is it just at certain times of the year?

I can't say for sure how long they will be antagonistic, but it's important that you give them enough room to get away from each other. Otherwise, one will likely be injured by the other, or at least become very distressed.
