no they wouldnt be ok, unless they found big time hiding spots...most likely the parents would eat them, and why let them get aten from the other p's...grow em' out and sell em'

Breeding cons will attach pretty much anything including you hand so your P will get attacked even if they are fairly big. Not going to really cause damage to them but they will be stressed.
well said

convict parents are fantastic parents, but mixing a breeding pair in with another agressive species can cause some stress. best bet is to make sure con parents have a home all their own

im moving my convict breeding pair to their own 30 tonight infact.
