Question Female doesn't have breeding stripes, but swims in the squiggly "S" pattern...

Rawrie, the new female I just got, is not showing any breeding stripes... yet she does that little "S" pattern of swimming while flaring when she sees her reflection in the mirror. Does she need to have the breeding stripes or is the "S" pattern enough?

I think S pattern is for male... female usually tilts head down when she's ready. The other guys here can probably tell you more.

I've had a few females squiggle on me before, but they all had breeding stripes, too. (I've bred before, though this has never happened...) And I'm 100% sure she's a female.

So it's fine, then? She's ready to breed w/out the breeding stripes?

Yeah it's more about her body language than anything else.
