  • Question.........

    Will a male CG try and fight a female CG that moves in with him when she is of a mature mating age and size.......even though he has lived as a Bachelor for quite some time? I know his scent will be in his cage when she moves in, but since she's a Lady and is joining him for breeding (which he should be happy about) will he treat her with a territorial attitude and want her out? He is in an 18x18x24 Exo and she is in an 12x12x18 Exo. At the moment they are both young, and are no where near the age to breed, but I want to be prepared when its time.

    Thanks,
    KMac*

    It will look like they are fighting, but at first it will just be him trying to breed. Within a few min of putting her in he will mostly likely chase her down, bite her, bite her more, and mate with her. If they live together after they mate you'll want to keep an eye on both of them to make sure neither is getting to rough with the other. You'll also want to monitor there weights to make sure one isnt keeping the other from eating.

      I've never had an issue with a male attacking a female, although the breeding can get pretty rough. You definitely want to make sure that they are well matched in size, and would suggest that they be kept seperate at least part of the year, so that she is not over bred by the male. Also make sure to monitor their weights, as noted above, and be sure to provide lots and lots of hiding spaces for them to choose from, as the male will likely have his favorites already picked out if you are going to be introducing her into his tank.

        Thanks for the great advice guys!!! I just decided on my drive home from work that when her size permits I will be buying another 18x18x24 Exo for her so that they will have their own enclosure and only visit each others house for breeding purposes only. Doing this will help me sleep better at night knowing they arnt fighting nor over breeding. It will just take all the guess work out of everything. ;-)

          Thats a good decision. Out of all our breeders I only have one trio that is together full time, and 2 females that live together. Everyone else is separated.
