    Yes would be nice. I have a pair which have been sexed, which I rescued. Separately that is. Built a 20x4 feet outdoor enclosure with a heated night box with a heat lamp and oil filled radiator etc... and me and my daughter don’t want to get rid of any of them so gonna add another female and see how it goes. If it goes wrong think we will rehome the male.

    You will need a much bigger enclosure to house a group.

    I was thinking you had a sulcata, sorry. The one you have for Russians should be ok.
