Woodling mates are chosen for them when they're children, then on reaching adulthood they're joined. The ceremony is the joining of 1 male to 3 females for life. They will mate with no others during their lives, and if the male dies, the females will not take another as a mate. They will continue to raise his offspring until they are grown.

Grounder females can be ready to breed twice a year. Pregnancy lasts 5 months, and the young don't stay with the mother after the first month. After their first month, all grounder young are kept in brood caves deep underground and looked after by older, infertile females. Female births outnumber male births almost 20 to 1. Making grounder females highly aggressive during these times. Understandably, after being released from the brood cave, grounder males usually take to hiding as much as possible.

Grounder females are so aggressive during their breeding cycle some have even been said to have attacked males of other species just for some relief from their raging hormones.

During the warmer months, the young are ejected from the mother's body, then swim for the cover of any nearby water plant groves. Trying to reach cover before any males of another group discover and kill them. The average female

Gor females breed once every two years. Pregnancy is a 18 month process for them and produces a single young. The young gor stays with it's mother for a week, then is left with the other young of the clan. In gor clans females are raised by a dominant female and males by a dominant male. To run the clan and raise the young are their only jobs. The rest of the clan sees to all their other needs. All gor who reach adulthood are sexually active all year, but only if the female is in season will offspring result. Gors are known for their insatiable appetites, and if unable to find another Gor to sate their wants, have been known to grab any physically compatible being nearby and have at them. Gors are not monogamous. They're a far cry from it. It's rumored a gor male can maintain for up to a week.

Gobs are much like many small forest creatures. They breed year round. A male will keep many females in his stable. He will visit each one in her burrow or cave on a regular basis, and when she gives birth to offspring, will even help care for them. Their paternal nature is surprising, considering how flighty they are most of the time.
