 Green Anole Dominance

Last night I brought home a good size male with good body size and a shorter-than-its-supposed-to-be tail thats thick. So since the 2 females were already going to sleep I didn’t see much of a interaction between them.

This morning as usual the dominant female was under the basking bulb and Stubby (male) was under the UVB watching her. All is fine until he wants to bask too and the female tries to get on his back and display her much smaller dewlap. Over the next few minutes he’s moving to get her off each time and she follows him and trying to get on his back. He doesn’t do much to start a fight besides showing his size and popping out his dewlap without pushups as if he knows she’s not worth it.

It has been a 2-3 months since there was a male in with the females and this is the first time I’ve had a "heavyweight" male.

Get another tank just in case if they fight.

They most likely won’t fight. The male will just assert dominance and they might even mate.
