Our older large male, 7\", keeps spinning one of our young females, 3\", around so that she is facing him. He then puts both front feet out and shakes his claws. He\'ll do this for hours, it seems to bother the female, she attempts to get away, but can\'t.

Is this normal? Thanks.

It sounds like the beginning of the mating ritual, and she\'s too young to mate. If it\'s creating a lot of stress for her, I\'d separate them.
