I have a pet 3 year old female eastern water skink and recently found someone who had a subadult / juvenile male eastern water skink that was for sale ( surplus to their needs - too many males in their collection , was a holdback ), I've bought him already ( very hard to find captive bred eastern water skinks and I've wanted another ever since I bought my girl ). I'm willing to house him separately to my girl (introducing them to each other only to breed) , but would prefer to house them together as a pair after he's settled in and served his period of isolation (quaranteen) in a separate holding tub. I seek advise on safely introducing him to her (he's a little smaller than she is) , any advise on how to safely introduce him to her with a view to keeping them together as a pair and perhaps breeding the pair will be appreciated. --- Automatic Post Merged, Nov 3, 2018, Original Post Date: Nov 2, 2018 --- Seems there have been no captive bred eastern water skink keepers / breeders here lately … ? No responses warning against continuously/permanently housing two or more eastern water skinks together as a breeding group must OK providing the tank is large enough and there are multiple basking spots and hides . So I'll stick to my plan and give the subadult (yearling ?) male eastern water skink a month or two to settle in and to make sure he's not carrying anything nasty then rehouse him with my 3 year female eastern water skink in her converted 149L ALLSET tub (W:575mm H:480mm L:790mm) or build a 1.2m L x 0.6m W x 0.6m H tank to house the pair in the new year.
