Both the males and females chirp, though I see the males doing more of this typically as a territorial or "we are stenodactylus, it is nightfall" call/display or as an outrage call ("you are in my space"--this one is fun as they stand way up high and chirp).
The girls have 2 chirps I've seen/heard: 1 is a single "let go" chirp that is usually uttered when one of the boys has grabbed her and the other like that of the males along the lines of "we are stenodactylus it is nightfall" call.
I have not kept the females separate, so I don't know if they woudl chirp on their own, but I'd guess they would, since I've seen them join in with the males in the early evening once the main tnak light goes off.
::Hi, 1 question....
::1. Do only the males chirp? Or females as well?
::2. If the females chirp also, would they chirp if there was no male in the enclosure?
