    Exclamation HelP! Phelsuma grandis FEMALES FIGHTING?!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I recently purchased 2 new female phelsuma grandis to put with my single female phelsuma grandis. The viv is well planted and is 36x18x36 exo terra. At first things were fine, but I came home to my original single female’s neck ravaged I immediately separated the geckos, and have found the pair I purchased live fine together but for whatever reason do not tolerate my original female. My orifinal female is pushing 10 years old now, and the 2 new females are approximately 2 years of age. I want to believe that the breeder I got the “females” from sexed them correctly but I do have my doubts now because again, her neck was RAVAGED, and I have never heard of this happening with females.

    I have attached a file of a picture of the ventral area of the gecko I believe is the one displaying aggressive behavior. If there is anyone out there that has advice, helpful comments or could confirm the sex, I would greatly appreciate it!!

    Sidenote: the female phelsuma cepediana pair i got, so far, are doing great 4CD1ED50-E412-4623-9658-970EE691B76D.jpg4CD1ED50-E412-4623-9658-970EE691B76D.jpg4CD1ED50-E412-4623-9658-970EE691B76D.jpg4CD1ED50-E412-4623-9658-970EE691B76D.jpg

    The pictures are too small for me to be able to tell. However, day geckos are notorious for not getting along with cagemates, even if they are all female. About 5 years ago, I got 2 juvenile female P. laticauda from a breeder who keeps multiple females together. They had some spats the first few weeks and then settled down. However, one didn't survive and I'm pretty sure the other (who I still have) bullied her without creating actual wounds. I think the most likely scenario is that you'll have to keep the new pair together but separate from your old one.
