Nhandu chromatus
So i brought this mature male Nhandu Chromatus a week ago. I know hes going to die soon but can anyone explain this behaviour to me. He has webbed himself upside down and is waving a leg around.
He is making a sperm web. Mature males do this often. Then they will roam in search of a female, slowly deteriorating until they die.
