How many of you have bought two (or more) dragons to keep together and subsequently had to separate them due to mating, fighting or other incompatabilities?

Shrek and Fi have been together since they were 4 days old. (From different clutches and parents!). Mated once 18 months ago - coming up 3 years old in July.

Bet this is the exception that proves the rule! :lol:

Bug was brought as a pair some 4 years ago by my friend. She ate her viv mates tail and back foot before it died poor thing .... i had forgot all about that until i read Trish's post.

I knew i wanted her even after that, i just had to bide my time until the novelty wore off and he wanted rid of her! Now she is all mine mine mine miiinnnneeeee :D

Come on people, this is totally anonymous! All you've got to do is press a button - not exactly rocket science and neither Ant nor I will shout at you afterwards :lol: (and if you believe that you'll also believe "the cheques in the mail" and "of course I'll respect you in the morning").

Rick :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm sure he will catch up eventually (or maybe he is naturally lighter in weight anyway?). You did the right thing by seperating them - bullying never gets any easier just worse :(

Pity I can't load any more votes up. We've just had to separate the last of our baby dragons at 6 months due to fighting - that's now three groupings all split up over the last month! That would push the separation figures up :shock:

we was told we could have two together :( so we bought a 4X2X2 tank put them both in and delila dam near killed the other one via starvationand sadly we couldnt afford another tank so for his own safety we returned him to the pet shop...........I for one would never recommend buying two to anyone.....
