I'm not sure what the best course of action is, but I suggest just giving them some time.

Chances are, since he's about 4 months old now, that he is sexually maturing, so she's probably just telling him to leave her alone. I'm sorry I'm not of much help, but good luck with your Sugar Bears!

I had the same issue. I had to separate them for a few weeks. I would allow interaction through the cage off and on with supervision. If the female attacks then wait a few hours. Try again. Eventually she will stop being territorial and allow him in. When the behavior is more inquisitive then you know it's getting better. Have a pouch for your male to sleep in outside the cage during this time. Just remember that your girl can hurt your boy at this stage so take your time. You will know when it's safe to let them play together. Just keep in mind when he is mature he will probably chase her around once a month when she is in heat. Neutered or not. They will be fine. Good luck!
