That's pretty much mating right there. Did you see a spermatophore?

yeah that's the dance. Make sure you have a flat surface if you don't already. The male will deposit the spermatophore on it.

I'd say that a solid surface is more important than a flat one.

yeah by flat I meant something like a rock. Mine were able to deposit the spermatophore on a strip of bark, but it was pretty sturdy.

If you didn't see a spermatophore (it looks like a little white stick-thing, probably a little less than half an inch or so), then it may not have been successful. Keep an eye out for something weird stuck to a rock.

As far as signs of gravid, gestation can range up to 18 months in this species, so it'll be a while.
