This was a very easy pairing and I saw no defensiveness from either during the entire process. Here's a little extra information: Female molted: February 11, 2016 Male matured: February 21, 2016 Recieved male: April 1, 2016 Female was very aggressively trying to pair with the male. During one pairing, she was so vigorous she knocked him down, where he landed on his back and crawled away from her on the carpet on his back several inches. It was an unusual sight. She continued tapping for him.
