: Thanks Tom

Hi,
I had the exact same situation two years ago. I had one med size male, one large female and one med female, in a well planted 260 gl reptarium. They got along just fine until they started breeding. The larger female became very aggressive and would charge the others if they approached her while she was eating. She adventually ate the smaller female. The captive breed offspring have never showed that kind of aggressive behavior and I haven't had any other instances of canabalism.
