    Re: Kalatoa 100% Pure SD Retic Progression (Pic heavy...)

    I could be way off and have said it before. I think is hormonal. She is wanting to breed and she is trying to get to your male. Then comes the problem of what to do with the eggs if any come with the breeding.

    "After 4 - 5 weeks the male and female can be placed together at the cooler temperatures and mist the cage for a couple of weeks. This is done by adding the female to the males cage, as this simulates the female entering the males territory as she looks for a mate."

    I keep seeing this over and over again in several articles. I am no expert but with her age and activity and a mature male around. It adds up to me.

    Actually the male would be the one to make the fuss. It is rather rare for a female to roam and push for breeding reasons. They give off the pheromones and the males make the effort. The males will combat, stop eating and channel their energies into finding a mate.

    Gerald is younger than his girl and I'm not even sure if he has hit full maturity.

    JM has already moved cages around, separated them by room and kept her out of the cage. When she is out of the cage she typically is fine, and she isn't roaming looking for the male's cage according to JM.

    I'd find it unlikely this is a female wanting to breed. In almost all species of animal, the males make the effort to breed and have to be accepted by the female.

    It's a larger subject than that explanation however, Gerald would be the snake making the ruckus in this situation.

    At the bottom of the article are some DO's and DONT'S.

    I think JM is on the right track with a larger cage.
