Are you still housing the Dragons together?
Are you sure this is the male Dragon?
Is there any other unusual behavior?
I may have further questions for you, but if you can answer these for now, I would appreciate it. Joan
yes i am housing them together as they where toeaghter from birth
Yes i am quite sure it is the male dragon
no unusual behavior apart from what i said about before
I do have a short video of the dragon doing what i have explained i think i have attached it to this message sorry about the video audio
if it does not work here is the link
I just viewed the video. What he is doing in glass dancing and the red is breeding color. This is usually excitement during breeding season in a male or on a female, it can be a sign she is wanting to lay eggs.
I suspect he senses another Dragon and is trying to get to it, since this is breeding season for dragons. I would just keep an eye on him for digging in the tank or other unusual behaviors. At this point, he looks great and the color is good. There is really nothing that I can suggest to do at this time, because he is showing some normal seasonal behavior, in the video. Joan
That is why I had told you that the Dragons should not be housed together. One breeding lasts the whole season. The male is over breeding female which will eventually take its toll on her.
A female Dragon can lay eggs every 4 weeks after one breeding for the whole season. The egg laying will eventually deplete her calcium resources and may cause her problems. Joan
If they are together they will continue to breed. You could put a divider in the tank, but that would limit the floor space that they need. The only other thing you can do is to have the female spayed. If she continues to breed and lay, eventually it will deplete her calcium levels and wear her down where you will loose her. Joan
You would have to see the Herp Vet and let him know she is laying a clutch of eggs every 4 weeks and you care comcerned with calcium depletion and egg binding and she is housed with a male. The vet will discuss the procedure and cost with you. It is similiar to having a female dog spayed. Joan
Dragons cannot rationalize like that. They enjoy some human company, but basically live to eat and bask. The do not get bored. They do understand touch and being held. The like to explore where there is food available. Joan
A Shallow bath a few days a week is very good for the Dragons. Periods in Natural sunlight is also very good. Joan
I take my dragons out one by one and hold them and sit out for 30min to an hour. It may be safe to take yours out in a small tank or container where the Dragon cannot get loose. Make sure to offer a shelter in case it gets to warm. Joan
i do live in the United Kingdom does that affect it
If it is a nice day with reasonable temps, then there is no reason not to be able to take the Dragons out for short periods of time. I have a lot of Dragon owners in the UK that will do this. Joan
I hope I have been of help. Joan
