    Is it only females that will attack each other?

    Today after feeding my smallest Cobalt grabbed one frog in what would be a mammal like breeding position and held on until the frog ran away and then did it to the other frog in the trio.

    Any ideas on what to do and would this confirm 3 females?

    Do you only see this when you feed? I see this behaviour with my New Rivers but only when I feed them. I know 2 are males the 3rd I still dont know.

    I see my males and females fight occasionally at feeding time. Especially when I have been feeding them lightly when cycling them down.

    Well then I will worry about it a little less. I was afraid it was female aggression.
