Hi,

Welcome to the RZ.

The cage is a great size for him, but I would not add another. Breeders will add the female to the male’s cage for two weeks tops and then place the female back in her own enclosure. If you leave her he will try and breed with her constantly, not only will this stress her, but it could make her ill. She may have problems laying and she could stop eating. I have tried housing two dragons before and it never works....one always ends up the dominant, in which case, the other will not eat and will be stressed all the time. Remember, they do store sperm and she could lay once a month for up to a year from one breeding. This is very stressful for her. Do you really want to do that to her?

My suggestion would be give the female her own enclosure or get someone that has a female and breed both.
