I am considering adopting a male red foot who has had his penis surgically removed after a neglected prolapse. Does anyone know if that lessens male aggresion around other males? Do they still express a constant need to mate?

It probably won't even slow him down.
Agression is hardwired into them.
I would not attempt to keep two males together with any fewer than 5 or more females.

Yeah. I knew it in my brain. My heart just felt bad for the guy. I don’t know what sex mine are- waiting to increase my creep until I know for sure. Will be years from now. Thanks!

Depends what space you have? If you can have a separate enclosure for him, then that would work you just can not cohabitate.
