Thanks Maureen,

That's good info. I thought I had read every post (yes, every post ) on the chuckwalla forum but don't remember ever reading that before. So, they even tried to mate in your hands?? LOL You've had them breed every season of the year?? Wow!

I know what you mean in how it takes chucks a while to warm up to new foods, cage environments, etc. One reason that I was so upset about losing my males (one Box Canyon and one unknown CA locale) is that last spring and summer, my chucks had really settled in to their routine and were chowing down on most everthing I offered. I thought that by preparing them so well for brumation they would come out of it ready to go. The females started eating the day I woke them up like they hadn't even missed a beat. They are eating like crazy now and are so fat. Of the two new males, the larger one is regularly eating dandelions out of my hand no problem (though not as enthusiatically as my females) but hasn't yet taken to other foods. So most of the time you keep your males and females separated? How many others here do that? Keeping a single male with a group of females seems more common, but I may have to try that. Very interesting.

Perry
