Rufous Betong

John just had a look at one of our newish baby Rufous Betongs, to see if it was a male or female, this one is a little boy. Why this is important to find out, is that the father Rufous Betong will kill it, at about this age. We have found this out through experience. We knew this happened but the mums usually hide the babies away in their nests so you never see them until you find them dead. The males only kill other males. So we just moved the father into another enclosure, which I am sure he is not very happy about.
