Cohabitation fix...how I dealt with it.

Well I posted (and got very few ideas from the forum...haha) about how to cohabitate my lone female Red with my new 1.1 pair of reds. To recap, my lone female, having never been exposed to other Tegus, was very willing to fight both of the 1.1 pair tegus. I tryed everything in terms of introductions and enclosures but she was hell-bent on fighting. What I did was get a 1/4 inch sheet of acrilic (plexi glass) and mold it to the interior of my 6 foot Vision enclosure. I cut the acrilic so that bothsliding glass panes were usable and the enclosure was divided into two similarly sized halves. Both sides have heat, hides and UVB. It worked great! I placed 1.1 on one side and my lone female on the other. My lone female still did some tailwagging and puffing but seems to be mellowing some now. I figure that I will keep them with the visual divider for a few months to ensure that they get used to seeing one another. I don't think it will completly stop them from fighting when given full interaction with each other, but it might stop some of the squabbling. I will be posting some pics of the set up soon!
