I have a bahaman anole (unsexed) and a male long-tailed lizard (bulge at base of tail) who cohabitate in a 3ft cubed fully accommodating habitat (UVA & UVB lights, humidifier, etc.) They have been living well for some time now. However, recently I decided to purchase a female long-tail (no bulge at base of tail). Things were fine for about a week or so. Then while out of town for three days (I hired a neighbor to maintain the habitat - humidity mainly), I came home to find the female dead. I supposed it may have been that the 'sitter' didn't remember to stop by or something, so I bought another female. A very active, healthy one. Well, two days later, she is also dead. I could not find any marks indicating she was attacked. I can not imagine the anole would hurt her, or why hasn't he/she hurt the male? Is the male killing the females? I was hoping to have baby long-tails, but don't want to risk losing another female. Any suggestions or comments? Thank you.
