Advertisement Howdy. Just thought We'd share this with you all...... Conditions Temperature: 80 Degrees F Humidity:69% Lighting Conditions: Dimmed Female Brachypelma klaasi Info: 6 1/2" Female molted on 4/10/2008. Male Brachypelma klaasi Info: 5" Matured Male. molted on 8/15/08 Male was placed into the females enclosure and settled down on the substrate for several minutes. Moved around a bit then approached the female on the other side of the enclosure. The female instantly picked up on the males scent and did some short drumming. He initiated the mating by some drumming very shortly while "twitching". The female walked down towards him from atop of her pot and put her front legs on his resting there for a bit. He then drummed a bit more and lifted her front legs. No fangs were bared so I didn't interfere. He gently tounched her front 2 set of legs slowly lifting her and walked her backwards slightly just enough to pull her abdomen closer to him. While doing this he used his pedipalps to drum rapidly on her belly while lifting her up and arching her backwards. He made 4 insertions and started lowering her down. Once that happend, she tried to grab him but was too far away. I intervened quickly and took him out placing him back into his enclosure for future breeding attempts. Here is a picture showing what happened.
