>>Sorry, been busy lately. Anyway, I don't get much tail waving from my Dumerils as far as breeding behavior. I get the "luring" a lot out of babies and a few of my adults, but that's off track. I used to watch my BCI do it a lot and just when I thought it meant stay away from me, it would end up in copulations and vice versa. So, I think it could mean either and is probably based on the pheromones they're putting off. I would just cycle them together. If they're courting, leave them be and when they stop for a day or two, seperate, then re-introduce. If you want, you can certainly just leave them together 24/7 for a month at a time. It works for a lot of people.
Well both females and the male went into shed at the same time, so I seperated them, waited until they shed, and reintroduced the three of them together. Saw a little courting from the male, but haven't seen any actual copulation. However, I'm not around 24/7 (I only check on them once or twice a day) so I could have missed it. Here's to hoping!
