In Reply to: Does my male have aggressvie mating behaviour??? HELP!! posted by Gecko2525 on January 27, 2003 at 09:26:16:
Some males and females for that matter are aggressive. We have a few reptiles (not just the cresteds) that will not tolerate others, but that might no be your problem. To begin with you should of just placed drako in the cage and left it at that. Watched him a bit and see what happened. If the female ran for dear life, she isnít ready so remove the male. Itís just a guess but you might have agitated him with the handling and showing him different girls, then removing them, then putting him snout to snout with one. He might have felt his territory being invaded, so he bit. Normal crested gecko breeding behavior involves the male slowly approaching the female and nipping on the legs and sides. He finally nips at her neck to get a grip and mounts her for copulation. If the female struggles and he chases her around she does not want to mate. Try again in a few weeks; if it still goes bad try introducing the female to the maleís cage. Just watch them carefully to make sure no one gets hurt incase you do have an over aggressive male.
