Advertisement Just to get everyone up to speed.. I have an adult female H.sp Columbia that molted fifty days ago and a male that matured sixty days ago. This last week the female was fed heavily untill she refused a meal.. In total she ate six large crickets and three big fat super worms. The male since maturing has showed little interest in food.. He has only eaten three small crickets since his molt. He made his first sperm web that I have seen four or so days ago so I introduced him into the females enclosure that next night.. He did absolutely nothing for two hours and the female never came out of her hide.. .. I watched and waited while he scrunched in the corner and then it happened.. I fell a sleep... Yup my dumb passed out with a mature male in the females enclosure.. Here's the best part.. When I woke up I had forgotten that I paired them that night ... I thought I had the cage out for feeding which I had also done that night.. So today while walking through my room I saw strange webbing in my H.sp Columbia females enclosure and was like why the hell is she making sperm webs... That's when it all came back to me .... So long story short(ish) they have been cohabbed for close to three days and he is still alive.. I see no evidence that the female has left her burrow although I admit that's easy enough to miss.. I assume possibly(?)they are mating because I found one sperm web on the floor of the enclosure and one fresh one still hanging presumably from last night.. So just general opinion what are the odds they have mated? What are the odds the only reason he is still alive is because the female has no clue he is there? I have seen one video of a female of this species kill and eat the male during breeding.. Does anybody know if that's more of a fluke and maybe the females of this species are more tolerant of males than most terrestrials? This is my first time pairing this species so feel free to offer any experience or tips you have pertaining to this species in particular.. I'm honestly not sure whether to leave him untill he is consumed or pull him, give him a few days and reintroduce him to the female after I have removed her from her hide/ burrow.. If the females aren't tolerant of the males the only reason he is still alive is because she hasn't noticed he is there and I need to pull him ASAP..
