    H. versuta sex revisited

    Following "Scratchy's" trip down to Melbourne for a mating expedition. I decided to house the two remaining adult females that I collected at the same time. I held off on the housing because one of the females had molted. She molted into a male of the species. I present "Itchy" the male H. versuta.

    One of the three adult Blue Mountains funnel-webs (H. versuta; 1 male, 2 females) that I collected from the Southern Highlands of NSW during the week has decided to present a molt in her temporary housing. I guess I'll have to wait a little while to place her in something more permanent.

    I love this big girl so much. Her first time feeding since I got her in July. Thought her abdomen would start losing its size after so long but nooooope. She took this mealworm down like a champ.

    Remember this massive girl? She came to me on 11 July and refused food ever since. I rarely see her out of her little tunnel as well so I thought I would just try to feed her tonight and I was not disappointed.
