sperm plug?

Postby Y33T » Thu Jan 18, 2018 8:22 pm

i don't have a photo and i had already disposed the poop so i'll have to type out what it looks like.
my 2 year old eastern (which i believe is female) pooped recently, normal poop and a urate but the urate looked a little cloudy and has a thin strand like a sperm plug but i'm not sure since its mixed with the poop and substrate and i can't get a better look. she never produced cloudy "urates" until today.

Sounds like one! Can't be sure without a picture though. It won't be the last, so try and get a shot next time! When one of my Eastern boys starts he drops them every few days!

i'll be on a look out for more then.
is the constant pacing and climbing a thing that males do when in season? mine seems to be doing it lately.

Yes, males do that. Mine are absolutely insane right now as some of the females aren't ready yet. What I see there doesn't exactly look like a sperm plug.

Thank you both...
I needed a visual.
I purchased a 2017 about a month ago.
My hopes are that it is male.
I will keep these pics to look for evidence.
