    Has anyone else experienced an adult male attracted to a certain female and forgetting the other? My adult male is constantly pursuing one female and ignores the other.

    Yes, it's common. They seem to fixate on one female and just leave the others alone. When I had the adult Manouria here, the male was enamored with one female and never bred the other two, but since moving to San Diego to live with my tortoise partner, he now covers all the females in the group.

    Very interesting. Last year he seemed "pleased" with both females, but this year he is more particular. Thanks for the response.
