    She may very well be getting ready to start a clutch. Give her some privacy. They do not like being disturbed while nesting.

    Thanks for the reply. I dont disturb her but just pop in to see everything is alright and start noticing the changes and the male and this one kissing - well feeding each other looks like kissing haha. Also i think he might be mating with thr other female as when i was sat there watching tv they were dancing and the other female had her tale up and the male had one foot on her back; maybe trying to mount her but. Dont know
