One of my pet rats is attacking her sister..?

My rats have been really friendly for 2 years. Today one of them started attacking her sister. We have not been able to stop her from biting viciously around her sisters head and neck. She has never done anything like this before, we tried separating them for a while, but as soon as they were back together she started attacking again. Any one have any ideas a) why? and b) how to stop?

    My hamsters were very friendly for half a year. They are siblings,they live together since they were born.I don't why,one day,they started fighting. The male got blood in his mouth and the female was injured and bleeding. I seperated them for a night and tried putting them back together but they ended up fighting again. I had no choice but to get a new cage and put the male in there. Its been almost two months since they were seperated.
