Thats a good point...that if they would have been like this if they were just seperated and breeding wasn't a factor. The virgin gecko male took to defense first upon the introduction. The male that had bred reacted and anticipated what was going to happen.

What amazed me was that the virgin KNEW right off hand that it was a male. He was 15 inches from him and knew! He smelled him in the air. He wasn't smelling places the male had been because he barely moved from the spot we placed him.

When I introduced my females to a male for the first time....completely different reactions even when they are a distance from each other. The males lick and smell and have a pre-conceived idea even before going up to them as to what sex they are. Call me na´ve but I think this instinct is absolutely amazing. I simply don't give them enough credit!
