Do female Horsefileds fight?

Postby DED2017 » Sat Jun 17, 2017 5:49 pm

I have two 5 year old female Horsefields and they really had a go at each other today. I have never seen it happen before. They were charging, headfirst at each other and biting each other's legs.

Yes two of mine do it a lot especially when the weather is very hot and they are carrying eggs. Mary

I'd advise keeping them separated,I've two males and one female and keep them all in separate set-ups at all times due to aggressive behaviour...they can and will bite chunks out of each other and cause serious injuries.
