Need some advice please

Postby bergsma » Tue Sep 11, 2012 11:40 am

Greeting all,

I have a pair of Gaboon Adders (4 years old), but the last couple of weeks my male has been going insane and has a hectic foul temper.
I know its mating season and this could be the main reason for the strange behavior. My question is what can I do to protect my male from hurting himself?
I am very worried about him and would hate it if anything happend to him. I have already closed his cage completely so he can't see anything or anyone.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thank you for taking the time to read and again any advice would be fantastic

All I can think of is breeding them. Remember to spray some water on them. When the female lifts her tail your male will be his old self in no time. lol.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Thanks Uromastyx, but Im not breeding them this year will only start breeding them next year. But I'll just keep him closed up and won't bother him too much for the next 2 months

Drop the temperatures slightly,close him up and spray a little at night and in the morning, the more heat they get the more stressfull they become.(just don't drop the temperature to fast)
as long as you keep quiet, no one will notice that your dumb
