Yup, only one cent, not even worth two cents...

If the male has truly lost interest, it's likely due to the female has stopped giving off all those sweet smells they do to entice the male to stay. If that is true, in the wild the male would be long gone off looking for his next meal or conquest whatever he finds.

(BTW, IMO, clearly shown by the lack of interest of the second male)

The real question is will a female that has stopped giving off pheromones, re-start again in the same breeding cycle?

I would think there has to be some event that triggered her to stop producing them. And if so, wouold have to be an event tied to the breeding cycle POST fertilization.


Sooo.... Long way to get there but I'd move the male... If you have a backup male (lesser genetics etc.) that's not doing anything, maybe put him in just in case???



This is Reeses and YEAH, he was done with that female!!!!!
