Dubia female caught mating twice

Recommended Posts

I only thought Dubia mate once and that's it. I am doing selective breeding and I had this male and female together to mate. I caught them mating and they were copulating for over an hour and after seperation the female was fatter and the male thinner. A week later I caught the same pair mating again for full length of time!

Either this male had a low sperm count, or Dubias can mate at least twice, giving the opportunity for 2 different fathers to the offspring.
