...interesting. haha, What does it look like when they're neutered?
This guy is neutered. All of my guys are neutered, now. Has no effect on their "hanging out". This guy in the top two photos was neutered way too early by the breeder due to his genetic condition and it has stunted his growth. I havent yet caught Buddy mating with Pican now that hes neutered.
...I can't believe they let you photograph them in the act...
My sugar family is very trusting of me. I was able to grab them out of the cage and hold them while they were latched together and mating. I did get some very dark and low quality video with my still camera which I may have to take a look at again to see if there is anything useful. The thrusts are very deep and are basically as far as he can manage to move. He would do three thrusts then pause for a time and repeat. This would last a great deal of time into the night.
Another interesting thing to note is that Buddy has been neutered since 3/26 and Pican appears to be "with pouch" again. Looks like two. It is safe to say that she has either stored some sperm or fertilized eggs or that the removal of testicles took awhile to have the desired effect...
