Hi i have three females and two males one which is sub adult i did take the males out for a while as the females were all gravid and the males kept pestering them, i have now put them back in but i have put a partition in so as the females show signs of laying i put them in the so they can lay without getting pestered seems to work as i have one female in there today

I have 3 females that lived together, one got to biting the others during feeding so took out for a while, they do go through bullying a bit for food but other than that they are fine, they are basking side by side as we speak.....all quiet and relaxed ha ha x
