    You might not want the attention. Cuz those two smaller ones, not only are too small to be with the sulcatas, but they also are not sulcatas the two species shouldn't be mixed.
    Sure hope it was only for a pic that they were mixed.

    I understand the difference of pathogens, and the debate that goes with it. While its no guarantee, they have roamed together for about 8 years. However, the CDTs do have their own space but are allowed to roam the full yard when I'm home to keep an eye on them. Also this has been discussed with their Herp Vet, who comes to the house for their annuals, and states that she is okay with their coexistence.
    But I really do appreciate the mention. As a dog owner who has had/have bully breeds, I never recommend a household with multiple Pit Bulls even tho I myself have had multiples. Better to be warned of possible issues.
