I had my P murinus molt on me today-and it's a boy. That's four out of my five T's that have turned male-i'm a little disappointed. Anyway, are males considered "mature" after they molt into males, or is maturity reached when they started making sperm webs?

Maturity is the molt where they gain the 'bulbs' and tibial hooks. Its also when they gain the instinct to make sperm webs, to fill their palps.

Basically when they start making sperm webs. Mature males are mature when they molt into hooks and bulbs. I'll get some pics later.

Males aren't so bad. This website is a great way to network and find mates for your pets.
