Intimidation and not eating

Postby TheBeard9789 » Sat May 08, 2021 2:09 pm

Haven't been able to find a cause but my female and male can see each other 24/7 (unless they are in their cool spots bc I have a towel over half the enclosures) and its spring and they both wave and Bob and dance ect (he came out of brumation) I was wondering if them being able to see each other stunts my females feeding habits would it be possible that I need them side by side or stacked and they see each other ONLY when they are out of the enclosure sometimes I feed them (obviously separate) and they wont break eye contact and I'm not sure if it's hormones or maybe hes intimidating to her I'm at a completely loss her and if it helps they both want to mate (mostly him) when out together 40% of the time I feel like I made a rookie mistake and I just dont know what I did

They should NOT see each other at all -- unless you are breeding them I would NOT get them out together-- she is stressed out and would be a cause for not eating-- they need to be either stacked on top of one another or side by side and one side solid so they cant see each other--
