breeding female attack

Post by rohman on Thu Jan 19, 2012 8:56 am

ok so i introduced my male in to the females cage after about 20 secs he started vibrating his tail like normal and then he went and bit her tail but as he bit her tail she attacked him and bit the side of his neck very violently. i removed him and he is ok but why did the female attack him like that?

That would be her refusing his mating proposal, I believe. Smile

It could be a lot of things, the first I would start with is she doesn't want him. It zcould be she's not ovulating, or he did something wrong. It's hard to say really.

She could be not ovulating, could be carrying eggs already, could be just not in the mood, could be that the male smelled funny. It could be a lot of things. But if you want to breed leopard geckos, you should know to always check to make sure the female is ovulating before introducing the male.

While checking for ovulation, check to see if she's already gravid. She would most likely be very protective of her eggs if she's already gravid, and would frantically fight off the male in a very violent way. Sometimes if a female is at the end of her ovulation period, she would also reject the male.
