Adult males can fight if kept together. Do not keep babies under 5" on sand due to the possibility of impaction. Carpet, though ugly, is safe for babies. Adults can be kept in colonys with one male and 6 females. Always provide a hiding spot, 2 is better if keeping multiple animals.They are nighttime feeders. At night, you must keep the enclosure in the upper 70's to low 80's for them to eat and digest.
