Advertisement Tonight after I researched the sex differences between Phidippus audax's, I attempted to breed my adult male with the female I have. Now I'm not sure if the female is mature yet or not- she is large, but one of her spots is still a bit orange, so I'm unsure if she's at the age she can mate. However, right when my male saw her, he jumped right onto her and attacked- no warnings or anything. Luckily I brushed the two apart quickly, but I do think my female was bitten... will she be okay, and were they just not compatible? I'd really like to not lose my girl, as she's the first bold jumper I've found, so she means a lot to me.
