It is my understanding in the typical harem of 1 male 3 females that the alpha female is always wanting to take over being male..I would imagine in larger settings the effect is even stronger .
So what happens is the alpha female kills the male ^^^. It is not if....It is when . Just my opinion and supported in many articles on 'successful anthius keeping' ..
You know the ones who seriously attempt keeping groups feed 6 times a day like they need ? I think one still needs plenty of feedings also .
I have yet to hear from any who have all they started with 3, 4 , 5 years later personally ? Seems like most loose some or all from what ever they think..I just said what I think happened...
