Hooking up.

I'd had my male Ambilobe with one of my females since Monday, but I haven't seen any "action". I have read that they should stay together for at least a week - or more - and the female eventually will change to a dark coloration once gravid and reject the male - same story here! -...what do you think?

We had to put our Ambanja's in a nutrual area. We had them together in his cage for over a week with no luck. Then we put them in a fake decor tree in the living room and bam, they were hooked in less than five minutes.
Of course it wont work unless the female is ready. Mine got together 3 times in 4 days. Then on the 5th day she turned black and would have killed the male if I would let her.


Hope this helps:)

Is she receptive? She doesn't look receptive in those pictures. It's not going to happen if she isn't receptive.

What!? Do I have to give her wine too!??...haha!...just joking of course. She's been changing coloration lately, and has not been aggressive to the male, so I thought she may be receptive...should I leave them together for a couple of days anyways?

If there is no aggression or stress I don't see why not. The first time I paired two panthers the female wasn't receptive but she wasn't aggressive either. I thought she was receptive because she stopped being her beautiful orange color and more of a peachy-pink color but that wasn't the case. Two months or so later she turned a really bright pink color and they finally mated (several times over the course of about 5 days.) She didn't actually become gravid for another week or so though. I have a crazy thread about her because she took 55 days to lay. She's a weirdo.

Thanks, I'll keep them together and lets see what happens...I should keep track of her weight right?
