so ok-the girls dont want to go into water yet-despite being very plump and appealing to the boys, ive got 2-3 boys in the water at a time-i cleared a big area out in the water so they could see each other and have room to dance-but right now only the boys seem willing to dance...Click the image to open in full size.

no real aggression-and not 'snout to vent' waltzing, just to about each others shoulders. it can go on for about 2 or so turns, sometimes they raise and twitch an arm or two like i have seen some lizards do, if i drop a female in its different-but they dont want anything much to do with the boys yet and so they just leave the water....
