Possible Dumeril Lock

Possible Dumeril Lock

Postby rolandslf » Tue May 24, 2011 12:08 pm

While on leave I witnessed this with my pair of Dumerils.
They are known to be skittish when mating so I did not interfere to the point where I saw actual penetration.
I did however manage to get these pics. The more knowledgeable can advise on their thoughts regarding possible lock up here.

Looks promising... only the arrival of live babies in a few months will confirm this.
Those who have made no mistakes have learned nothing and can teach nothing.
The same is true of those who continue to make the same mistakes.

Thank You for answering Byron.
I suppose I should get a bit excited because there is definitely some interest there.
As you say, time will tell.

Good luck roland.

They look like a nice big pair so you should expect lots of babies!

Westley - Yip, they are 6 years old now. Last year produced nothing so I'm holding thunbs for this year.

Heidi - It was just by luck that I saw this. I wish you all the luck. How old are yours now?

Geez, If I remember correctly, they should be 3 or 4 years old now. Thanks.
