Abstract
Buschschliefer. Das Männchen prüft die Paarungsbereitschaft des Weibchens. Die Kopulation dauert mehrere Minuten und wird durch eine kräftige Stoßbewegung beendet.
In the mating season males regularly seek for females in oestrus, testing by sniffing at the vaginas. A female in oestrus is constantly followed by one male (usually a terr. male). Once mounted, a male makes a series of 4-5 thrusts every 20 seconds, accompanied by weaving head movements; the penis is pressed against the vagina, but not introduced. The female's back is hunched. After 3-5 minutes the penis is fully introduced with a sudden jerk, whereupon the female bites and chases the male.
