Hi,
Has anyone experienced your male tortoise trying to breed your female tortoise but his thing doesn't come out. I see him all the time trying to but nothing. I took him to the vet about 6 months ago and he did an xray and felt inside and said everything is normal.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

This is common with all species. Mounting doesn't necessarily mean mating. Sometimes its just attempted domination, which is sometimes part of getting the female to comply.

I'm still having this issue with 1 of my largest males. He just won't breed any females. He does the whole mounting routine but then nothing.
