I recently purchased a pair of U. pietschammi. Wonderful animals. They have acclimated perfectly. Nearly every day, they sleep curled up next to each other. The male shows subtle signs of interest in the female, but she completely ignores him.

Last night the female was climbing up a branch parallel to the one where the male was perched. He was studying her closely. Then, he half leapt to her branch, grasping it with his front feet but leaving his back feet on his original perch. As she climbed past he vocalized at her. It was a breathy, high-pitch "honk." He did it several time as she walked past him, and once more as she disappeared higher up the branch. She did stop momentarily and look at him, but then just kept climbing. He climbed off in the other direction.

Has anyone else seen a display like this? It didn't seem aggressive at all. I interpreted it as interest in breeding.

The male is slightly smaller than the female. Does anyone have experience with size differences and its effect on breeding?

Thanks,
Mike
