Advertisement I was the most surprised person in the world when I introduced my MM rosea "Rosebud" to my "Copper" girl. I didn't know how she would react to him, so I shark-caged him. She went right up to the container he was in and immediately raised her front legs. So after about three minutes I lifted the container off him and he lifts her right up! Right in front of me. I was spellbound! It was her first mating and she was smitten. After a few insertions she tried to put her side legs down and he slapped them with his! It was hilarious. After they were done I put him back in his enclosure. Copper, my girl went 'round her tank and lay upon every place he had touched. He on the other hand went into his tank tucked his legs in and went right to sleep. Of course. Here is a pic of them together. The mating happened so fast I had no time time to grab my camera.
