    So I paired these guys this morning...

    She's a savage. Can only hope his inserts were good.

    Thanks. Seems he did.

    Should always make sure I have enough coffee down me before pairing Ts. Although this one was that fast I doubt I could have prevented it anyway.

    I have another MM that will be paired with just to be sure.

    Nice one, I always feel bad for the dudes when they get caught. Way she goes I guess

    Hey.timing is everything.....and when it's off,it's REALLY off.
    I liked how his back legs were kinda hanging off the hide, like.._" I have all kinds of time here".Or not.

    First time seeing that happen, breeding hasn't crossed my mind yet. Pretty intense, you weren't kidding when you called her savage. Hopefully he was successful. R.I.P. little guy :(

    It is part of the package sometimes. I'm sorry I was your first ;)

    It sucks when you only get one shot at it but some of these species are just too damn fast to do anything about an aggressive female. I feel worse for my mm's when they just slowly decline and their abdomens shrivel. I'd almost rather see them go out on their shields, plus if the female decides it's the best thing to do for the sac it probably is.

    Absolutely. I believe if the female is very receptive and isnt aggressive before and during pairing then eats the male after, it is usually a sign that he got the job done.

    Life is a funny thing

    Eh, natural occurrence :) I had of course heard of it happening but seeing how fast it goes down was quite impressive. First breeding I saw ever was a couple G. pulchra, the male belongs to a member here actually.
  12. She didn't, waste no time munching him...did you feed her prior to this? Lol

    She was definitely very receptive and tolerant. You know, right up until the point when she wasn't. I'm no expert, but it certainly seems like a promising pairing. Good luck!

    She's was on him like a tramp on chips.

    Do males ever fight back (if able)?

    KezyGLA Arachnoking Active Member

    They can but not usually baboon species :depressed:

    It's not pleasant for a spider lover but better the male dies at the fangs of the female than vice versa.

    And at least he's providing nourishment for the female (although not needed in captivity).
