Possible courting?

Postby Evaradero » Thu Oct 09, 2014 9:13 am

After heavily misting, i heard some calling from my imitator 'varadero' tank and i saw this. A male was calling infront of the other frog whose gender i have not been able to figure out. Let me know what you think

You'll know wrestling / combatting when you see it....otherwise, it will be breeding.

Is 'courting' even an applicable biological term? Isn't is 'breeding'??

I keep thinking about Gone with the Wind...'courting in the old south'. "May I have this dance my dear'?

Well i honoestly wasnt even sure if it was actual breeding, or just the 'courting' stage when he was trying to arouse her because he seemed to be calling to her from a close proximity. I think the word courting is correct, but to an extent... lol
