Pelomedusa subrufa subrufa (LACÉPÈDE) use diverse and unusual displays in courtship. Males show behaviors such as head-head (tête-tête), head bobbing (balancement de la tête) and biting to guide the female to stabilisation. Female's stabilisation is realized when the male mounts the female. Behavioral units are considered in their sequences in order to establishe the different possibilities of courtship leading to copulation in this species. Visual, tactile or chemical cues seem to be important in each behavior.
