    Successful...

    The mating took place in my Tarantula room, This is how it went down...


    The male was placed Into female's enclosure were he walked the enclosure for about 3 min, always staying in the top of her enclosure (which is an exo-terra 12x12x18 all glass terrarium) The Female was in her hide. She reluctentaly came out after the male's insistant tapping. She tapped back but was reluctant to let him approach. He maintained the elevated position and actually pulled her up on to her hide where he lifted her. Three successfull inserts were observed.



    The Male was then removed from the her enclosure and she returned to her burrow....

    I will post pics when I can....

    got it done

    for the las 3 years i worked with these girls due to my life style i was un able to witness mos of the activity. all i know is the male went in and the male came out. 2 males 3 females each time and produced 9 sacks 8 w/viable slings.
    1. 75
    2. 32
    3. 85
    4. 00
    5. 80
    6. 96
    7. 83
    8. 90
    9. 101
    these are the # of viable slings in order from 1st to last.
    all i did was introduce the male and keep it moist.

    Update to Post #18 on this Thread.

    Breeding was successful. On Dec 1st I noticed the female had constructed a sac, I believed it to have been made the evening prior. I left it in there for approximately 1 month and on January 2nd I decided to pull the sac. I found the sac to be filled with nymphs. I manually incubated it in a hammock style container and approximately 2 months after laying, the nymphs have molted into spiderlings.

    Update:

    A second sac was made from the first pairing in late Feb. Yesterday, 2nd instars were observed in the females retreat. I will be leaving them in there for a few weeks until the numbers become more manageable.

    sucessful again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    as it goes i recived a mm P. Irminia on breeder loan from jojobear i had 3 females that produced for the last 3 years and now 4 years.
    female #1 came out with the intent of a meal i think but with tongs in hand soon breeding took place. being locked up for 20-30 min.
    female #2 meet the male verry calm breeding was over in seconds?
    female #3 rejected the male for weeks then finally breeding took place.
    after 2 months i had sacks and 2 months later lots of slings.
    female #1 had 194, way more than her last sack???????????
    female #2 had 145, way more as well??????????
    female #3 (sad but true) died before she made a sack definately full of eggs.
    special thanks to jojobear for his verry potent male.:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

    (Feb 23, 2009)This morning i successfully paired my MM P. Irminia with the Mature Female i got at the Mississauga show from The Reptile Store, in Hamilton.

    The pairing went off perfectly, the male had a hard time positioning the female and failed at hooking her fangs 3 times before he finally get her in a corner. He was Very forceful. He got both palps deep inside her folio and held that position for around 6 seconds before the female shook loose.

    The male then promptly bolted the scene. Grooming behavior was seen my both the male and the female, and the females folio is protruding slightly. (all good signs)

    The male was especially cleaning the end of his palps, my guess is to reload them clean for the next round. Once he makes another sperm web i will be pairing them up again.


    The only thing is that the female is showing signs of being in pre-molt. She was refusing food before, and even after pairing. (She is very large anyways)

    Hopefully she wont molt out. I hope it takes.

    Ill post pictures of the male and female tonight when i get back home, and ill be sure to take pictures during the next pairing.

    *Unsucessful*

    # Successful? - No. She ate the sack maybe two days before the original planned sack pull.

    # Any special care or preliminary notes for the lovers - The female molted 45 days before pairing her with the male. The male was 2 months through his ultimate molt.

    # How they were paired - The male was intoduced the female's enclosure, opposite to where the female was staying.

    # Any observations on the hookup - The male locked once with the female. After the the lock, the male began his retreat

    # Any special post mating care - No. The female was kept at around 80F the entire time. The humidity was increased 20 days after the last mating to induce laying.

    # Time to sac - The first mating took place on 11-22-2009. The sack was laid on 1/18/10. Eaten on 02-07-2010.

    # Care of the sac - I had planned on pulling the sack at exactly 20 days. The female ate it at 18 days.

    Here is a video of the first pairing.

    Breeding Attempt 1(unsuccessful) :( 9/25/09: Male placed in female's enclosure. The male began drumming and about 5 minutes later the female emerged from her hide and the two paired up. This lasted about 10 minutes, but no insertions were witnessed. Waited about 2 months, but nothing happened. The female's abdomen was still very small.

    Breeding Attempt 2(Unsuccessful) :( 11/9/09: Male placed in female's enclosure. Drumming began immediately and the female emerged from her hide. A few minutes after emerging, she approached the male and he attempted to pair up with her. She responded by biting his left front leg. Male died shortly after.

    Breeding Attempt 3(Successful) :) 11/30/09 Male #2 placed in female's enclosure. He began drumming almost immediately and the female emerged from her hide. She slowly approached him and they paired up. THis lasted 10-12 minutes from start to finish. The male was then removed and they were paired again a few weeks later. I am not sure of the exact date.

    3/13/10 Female is in her hide and has webbed up a small corner of the container. One particular part was very thick and looked like a lop-sided bowl. She is kind of "hovering" over the spot with her abdomen so I think she is laying her eggs. The side of the container is a bit cloudy so I can't really tell.

    3/14/10 Last night I was almost sure that the female Irminia was laying a sac so I checked on her this morning and there it was! She has laid a good sized, plump sac. Considering this is the first sac I've gotten from a pairing I am quite happy. :) Not sure whether I should leave the sac with her or not. She is a first time mom so I am debating whether or not that is a good idea. Will post pics of everything when I can :D

    P. irminia - unsuccessful

    Paired my female with loaner male on Nov. 18th 2011.

    Female was very receptive and first pairing took about ten minutes total. Saw some good insertions.

    Tried a second and third pairing while I still had male, but no action. Shipped male onto next adventure.

    Kept female well fed and enclosure misted pretty heavy. Abdomen showing signs of growth.

    Female dropped eggs on Jan. 9th.

    Unfortunately female did not lay enough webbing beneath eggs so eggs were laying directly on sub. She worked to web the top, but to no avail. The following morning she was eating eggs for breakfast:(

    I'm assuming female did not know since this was the first time she has been bred. Hoping to try again with her soon and hope she learned from her own mistakes.

    Pairing

    After I witnessed the male doing a sperm web I placed him in the females tank,on 29 th may,2012.After a bit of tapping from the male the female came out of her hide and he managed an insert straight away.

    Post mating care

    Her enclosure was kept on the middle shelf for the next two months at around 76'f.Around the end of July her tank was put on the top shelf and covered with a pillow case,and the substrata was wetted.temperature at approx 83'F.
    On August 14th 2012 she layed an eggsack.

    Pulled eggsack on 4 th September 2012.At 27 days.
    Noticed around 80+ N2's
    Lost around 10 N2's in the incubator
    Started molting to spiderlings on September 20 th 2012.
