i started hearing some odd noises and aproached my stenodactylus viv. i cuought some sort of comunication going on there between my male and female.

hes bang his tail on the substrate. hed hold his tail dead straight and bang it up and down while barking continuously.

the female in response flatened herself up and wiggles her tail.

This went on for several minutes until they noticed me watching and ran in oposite directions. :?

was this mating ritual ???

Not sure, I've not seen the courtship of my stenos yet as I am not around them most of the day, but all I know for sure is that they chirp more regularly on certain nights, and this only happens since I have the males and females together... I dont disturb them though partly incase it interupts them and partly cause I'm usually in bed and too lazy to get up :roll:
