 Male anolis still after the female after mating

I just saw my two anolis mating 2 days ago, before I wasn’t even a 100% that if one is male and the other one is female for sure. But yesterday they were on the top of each other in mating position, and one of them did this head bobbing thing and showing its dewlap quite often recently. So 2 days ago I guess the mating happened, but the male is still after the female... is it possible? And doing this courting thing a lot. Should I do something?

 Male anolis still after the female after mating

If he wants to mate and she’s receptive, they’ll be fine. You only need to separate them if the female is being chased around the enclosure to the point of being stressed or has signs of injury, like bite marks on the tail. Bite marks on the neck from mating are normal.
