Thank you for your response.
You are correct about the male killing them. I decided to get two more females and watch closely. That very day I caught the male attack the tail of one, then shortly thereafter try for her midsection. I was fortunately able to move the branch they were on in time to save her. I then captured the male.
I spoke with the pet store I purchased the females from and they offered to trade my male for another one who would not be territorial, coming into the females' domain. He was also confident that my male would not be aggressive putting him with the store's lizards since it was unfamiliar territory to him. He agreed to watch closely however and separate the one I brought in and adopt him out separately if there were any aggression problems with him.
Now I have two females and one male that were formerly all housed together at the pet store. They appear to be quite content. I have even since removed two eggs and presently have them in an incubator.
They are terrific little creatures and I enjoy them much.
Thank you again for your reply.
