I posted down below a few days ago about introducing my lone female to a new pair of red Tegus I purchased. Well I tried the two girls first and it was pretty rough. I later (the next day) introduced my lone girl to the pair. I placed the lone female into a the pairs enclosure and more of the same. However, she attacked the male more vigoursly. At one point (the point where I seperated the lone female) she grabbed the male by the leg and went into a violent "alligator death roll". Is this a sign that there is no hope for cohabitating the trio? Should I make a clear dividor to allow them to see one another but not contact each other? Should I get the new pair up to the same size as me girl? (they are only slightly smaller in length but my gir is a big fatty) Lastly, would you assume that because she attacked the male so intensly that my girl is a male? (I probed her and I could swear she is female) I really could use your thoughts and advice here!
