    Question Some advice/agressive female?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! So, I tried to breed my geckos at the beginning of march. My female was eating well and was in good weight, same with the male. I put the male in the female's enclosure and left him there for 3 days. I saw them mate many times and both were calm and all right with each other. I took the male away and the female was fine and she was eating well. Bit over a week after the first mating I tried to put the male back for few days (just to be sure). But this time the female was very agressive, waving her tail and actually bit the male quite hard when he got closer. I seperated them immediately. I assumed that the female didn't want to mate cause she was already gravid. 2 weeks passed and no eggs, so I tried to put male back once more. She got once again instantly agressive so I kinda gave up. She has not been digging and shows no signs of being gravid. This behaviour puzzles me, because when they spend the first 3 days together they were both curious about each other and there were no signs of agression at all. Female also stopped eating few weeks ago, but im assuming it's just because it's spring (all my other geckos stopped too, this happens every spring) So what im asking here is, what could cause this agressive behaviour? Should I still try to breed them or should I just forget it at least for this year? (the picture of this female was taken 23.3, almost 3 weeks after breeding, though im bad at using this site so not sure if I got the picture to work :/ ) Sorry about grammar mistakes and rambling

    Give her some more time. From the picture I think she may be gravid.
