Question When do Leopards reach sexual maturity in captivity?

My leopard is about 4 years old and to put it delicately he gets his "winky" out allot these days.

Is it like tortoise teenager thing? spontaneous erection or is he doing it for a reason?

Its a little boy tortoise thing! he is probably a wee bit small to be considering a big girl. But he can dream and he will have to wait a few years. We have 3 boys Leos and so far they have been very well behaved, or it could be they are intimidated by all the girls!

Males will mature alot quicker than females, that's why its important to keep sub adult males away from young females.

Its all to do with size rather than age, my male is a rehomer not sure how old he is, but he is 4.5-5kg and is sexually mature

well Sarah would you like to pimp your male out to me please as my males have not got a clue. My females are 7.5 kilos and the males are not even half of that. All re homers but the 1 male is meant to be 14 years old but he was kept in a Viv for 12 of those until i got my mitts on him now you can see the growth on his shell. well im might just have to wait a few years ( wonder if you can go to jail for soliciting a tortoise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
