I have one ornata that was so in the mood when I went to try pair her with my big boy, that she wanted nothing to do with the boy, she tried to lift herself up because she liked my paint brush better! I think vibrations have a LOT to do with it!I know females will drum in response to a male, yes?
But has anyone had a female just start drumming out of the blue?
I think mine is... or she's a dude. Not sure!
Think she's trying to tell you something.Oh good, so I'm not nuts.
But in the videos of drumming I've seen, the males' drumming is faster and higher pitched, if that makes sense; and the females' is lower and slower. Like in this video.
The drumming I heard sounded more like the male - is this video just a special case, or is the difference in drumming types so obvious in all species?
EDIT: She's an OBT, and she's NEVER to be seen. But the last couple days, she just chills out hanging' on the wall of her enclosure. She has no visible boxing gloves or hooks, so I still think she's female. Am I just overthinking this?
I have a female OBT as well that will occassionally just start drumming. She's 100% female too. It's real annoying when she does it
when I'm trying to sleep.
