The Ameca splendens I got from Pierre recently seemed to be involved in some
sort of courting display the other morning. The female hovered
perpendicularly to the male, and shimmyed something like a mollie would, but
much more violently. After a few moments of this. The male then hovered
perpendicular to the female and did the same thing. A second female did the
perpidicular violent shimmy before the male, but he did not reciprocate,
instead shimmying in front of the first female.

I don't know what happened next, as I had to go to work.
