In Reply to: leachie question plz help. posted by obeligz on December 05, 2002 at 15:17:22:

:Hi.
:My CF male just scared me sh*tless..
:I was watching TV when I heard some whistling noises from the leachie tank right besides me.
:I turned my head and saw that my male was behaving very wierd. He was walking up a branch towards the female but he was shaking like a leaf.
:His whole body/head/tail was shaking violently.
:I got scared out of my mind and was sure that he was going to die right there and then. When he reached the top of the branch (he stopped 3 inches from the female) his body stopped shaking but he continued headbanging infront of the female.
:When I opened the enclosure and they saw me the male ran off while the female didn't move.
:I took out the male for closer inspection but he seems fine now (just a little grumpy). He doesn't shake anymore.
:Has anyone experianced this behaviour in leachies?
:Should I be worried?
:Could it be a sign of aggression?
:I have heard whistling noises from the tank before but have never witnessed any agression between these leachies, they almost always sleep next to eachother during the day.
:I keep them in a well planted 250 gal tall enclosure.
:Plz help.
:regards
