    Default huffing sounds

    I had my adults arg b/w's out free roaming for the first time together yesterday, they were together for a good hour and I was sitting on the floor beside them observing. There was no chasing or biting but my male was making a really fast huffing sound, I almost want to call it a gorilla sound lol, whenever he would get up by her face... she ignored him... Again, he wasnt chasing her and she wasn't trying to get away from him while he was doing it either... Is this a sign of aggression towards another, mating sound or possibly both??? I will try to get it on video if anyone doesn't know what Im referring to...

    Sorry, nvm I found my answer.... yes mating sounds... He tried to mate with her... although since this was his first attempt he didnt get dead on the target but she didnt seem to mind too much... He was gentle!

    I'm glad that he was being easy on her and that she didn't mind. It's kind of funny to watch them when they huff and puff lol. Our Leonidas went after me and my shoe like that one time .

    This was not normal huffing and puffing, this was very quick and short huffs completely different than the huffs they give when they want to be left alone which are long and deep huffs.

    Duh. I don't know why I posted the Tegu caresheet in my my last reply. I wanted to post the video of our Leonidas when he was huffing and puffing at me. Was yours huffing and puffing like Leonidas did in that video ?

    Sam, it was hard to hear the huffing in your video but i found another on youtube (NOT my tegus) This is the EXACT same thing he was doing.

    I'm sorry about that. I know it's hard to hear it but if you look at his jowles you can see how fast they are moving. I remember seeing that video before in the link you gave me. Yes, this is what they do when they wan to mate. But Some of our Tegus also did that when they smelled something ( I don't know what ).
