>>I recently introduced a saharan female to a smaller male and the next day i noticed he was getting on her back and sometimes holding on to her with his mouth but nothing that seemed to bother her.Has anyone witnessed this and or should i just separate them for stress reasons.I didnt plan on mating them but if it happens oh well.Thanks

This sounds an awful like breeding behavior. If you do not want it, you may want to separate them. It could also be a bit of domination, so keep a close eye on the female. Make sure she is eating well and not terribly injured.
