Hi Lisa,
Tegus now too--you guys are as crazy as me--LOL.
Try introducing them outside maybe? Our two pairs seem to get along fine outdoors, bask together and roam--the enclosure might be too territorial of a place. Maybe if they get along outside of the enclosure, it will be easier to put them together. Sounds pretty volitile though--I am not sure why.
good luck.

:I vote for using the divider. See how the larger female responds to that, and let us know how it goes. With a clear barrier, at least they can all see each other and maybe slowly get used to the presence of each other and maybe your larger female will chill out a bit.

::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!
