    Hi, your turtles are probably growing up and starting to have territorial issues. One of them wants more space and that’s why they want the other turtle to leave. They do this by biting them. Please SEPERATE your turtles ASAP. Also, from this picture, it looks like your enclosure is a little too small, might wanna upgrade. Unless the one you’re holding them in the picture is a feeding tank.

    Yes, time to separate if U wanna avoid more casualty. Claws fluttering can be a ‘challenging’ behaviour other than mating dance.

    And u should also let them out for like digging holes in ur downstairs grass patch or sand for their nails to “unsharpen” so tat it won’t be so pain when it scratches u or others

    U also should bring them out for”walks”(Rome around) in the evening sun about 5-7pm around there as they need vitamin D for their shell or else their shell will start to have white spots
