    Default What behavioral changes should I expect during breeding season?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So Iím a very new Leo owner, and I havenít had any Leos during breeding season before. I was worried about some behavior and I was told it was probably just breeding season, so I tried to research it but there isnít much from what I could find.

    I want to know what to expect from my make and females (none of whom share a tank). Already the male has seemed a bit more territorial and he spends a lot of time looking at where my femaleís tank is kept. Are there any other behavioral changes I should expect? How long do these last? How can you tell if a female is ovulating? Is there anything special I should do to make them more comfortable?

    I also want to breed once I have the time, money, and experience (as in, keeping at least 3 adults and raising a baby and keeping them for at least four or five years), so are there any signs that a Leo is ready to breed?

    You can google to see pictures of ovulation. Some females don't eat much when ovulation starts. If males can smell a female they may get a little overactive, but it's no big deal. It's likely that by the summer all these behaviors will calm down. Here's an article I wrote about gecko behavior throughout the year that also discusses ovulation behavior changes:
