We had to separate our boys the other week due to different personalitlies and finding a bite mark on gizmos lip.
All is ok and the cut is healing.

However cause floor time is now split whenever rex is enjoying his floor time this drives gizmo insane. He chews all the bars and anything else in his way out of frustration.
Is there anything we can do to ease his frustion or prevent this behaviour altogether?

Aww sorry to hear they've fallen out.

Hmm. I'm not sure. Maybe get another run and let them both out at the same time? Hope you find a solution soon.

Could you try draping or towel or fleece over the bars so he can't get to them. I've done this with my c& c cage and works well or you could try distracting him with a treat or toy. The living world flip toys are good and can keep them occupied for ages trying to get the treats inside x

He has toys, only works a few seconds. i'll look up the living world toys, ta.

Trying the double runs. He keeps trying to climb into rex's side lol, that or following him up and down the fence.

Poor piggies. My 2 had a falling out too they were seperated. But kept trying to get to each other. So I followed the bonding thread on the forum and now they are back together. It was pretty scary seeing them settle their differences but apparently it looks worse to us than it is for them. They seem to have worked things out now.

crazy piggy was doing it for an hour the other night, at 1 in the morning.
a towel that rex had been sat on earlier draped over the end of his favourite hidy seemed to calm him down.... atleast long enough for us to get some sleep.
