so. i tried to get lucien to meet tiga today.

i remember writing about how i didn't want to mate lucien, because i noticed that after they start having bubbas, my girls tend to just become egg-factories until they die. so i was delaying this, even though i could tell lucien has already reached adulthood.

then, one day, i suddenly noticed a very small cluster of eggs. non-viable eggs, obviously, because she has never been with any boy. she guarded them for a day, and then ate them.

i told uncle moo about it and he said she needed to mate. she laid those eggs because she was probably bursting full of eggses. :p

so. it was time for tiga to meet lucien.

yesterday i bought some worms for everyone. this was part of the reason as well - i wanted to stuff them prior to mating, so nobody becomes dinner instead. worms were a good choice, fat and juicy. everyone had one except for bib, who kept hiding in her bed.

today, i offered worms to tiga and lucien again. both of them rejected the offerings. this was my cue to introduce them.

unfortunately, lucien wasn't receptive. :( i have a rather funny video clip of tiga doing his little dance, lucien watching warily, backing off, and then running away!

oh well.

uncle moo says, try again tomorrow.

i've been trying to but every day flies by so quick. it seems they're increasing in speed as i get older. i guess i'm getting slow!
