    She still could've felt threatened upset angry all of those things probably just stressed. She could have saw her reflection in the glass of her cage and thought it was another lizard. They don't understand reflections and the concepts of glass. Its alright any other weird things start to happen and I would take her to the vet. But only if you are really worried, it never hurts to just have a checkup done.

    Do you think he could be seeing his own reflection some how, that sounds like a territorial attitude you are describing, a show of dominance towards another male.
