Just like Blake said..


You can initially start with a group of young males or imports and house them together. As they grow, become healty or mature they will set up territories and the dominant male will eventually bully or kill the other male. Sometimes, the other male will just weaken and die as it tries to stay away from the resident MONSTER!!!!

Not a good idea....In fact, having too many girls is often not so great either. I find my best groups are pairs. I have groups with several girls and I seem to have some random egg eating and dominant girls that produce and weaker females that don't do much. i then have seperated the weaker female set her up with a male and got her to be productive. Takes lots of cages to optimize this effort, not crowding them!

>>No. You wont be able to house males together unless you give them like a literal room. . . something around 20feet cube. Males are very very territorial and will not tolerate another male even close to them or their girl. If you house males together your just going to be looking for trouble and dead animals. The only way is like I said give them a huge room. . like the size of a big bedroom with lots and lots of plants and trees and branches. Thats about the only way to do it and you still might have problems. Best bet is to just have a few cages with either a pair or a male and two female trio. Just dont keep males together.
