GTF mating

Postby lippi.lisa » Wed Jan 16, 2008 4:48 pm

I have seen a few of my GTF in mating position but they never seem to spawn, how long do they need to stay in the position for? The females jump out of the container with water in it with the male still clinging onto their back, eventually the male moves off.

Theres no set time, they will breed when they feel right, the best you can do is make sure the environment is right for them and wait.

Cheers,
Grant

thanks heaps, I have put them outside in an exo terra screen enclosure for the warmer months of the year, hoping nature might help them along.

I wonder if playing some GTF calls in the background might get them in the mood?

What gets them going at my place is rain. When the temperature and humidity is right I can turn on a tap or make some noise that resembles rain or falling water and they all break out in chorus. If it's wet, as in after rain, they make their way to water and in the morning there's eggs all over the place. You need to work out how to set up that sort of a situation.
