    This was my first attempt at mating T's. I introduced my male G.rosea into the female's enclosure and was prepared with my foreceps in case they needed separating. the male started walking towards the female and next thing i know they had their legs wrapped around eachother. There were some very fast movements until he finally managed to hook her, and while he was inserting I noticed that he had a tiny clear droplet on his abdo. Could this be a bite mark? and if it is would it be lethal to him? He finished up in a few seconds and ran straight out of her enclosure. Any ideas on what might've happened?

  2. There shouldn't be any leaks after mating.If there is.Something went wrong.
    Put the T in a clear container.Then look and find were the drops are coming
    from.There are a number of ways to stop the leak.But first you have to find
    it.If you don't do anything he could bleed out and die.If you repair the leak.
    He could be back to breeding in less than a week.

    Definitely assist him and confirm whether or not it's an injury.
    You want him to last you for your breeding project....
    It may be nothing, but it might be something!
    No one should be leaking..
