It's happening again....I seem to have an ongoing problem in picking males....
I posted my recently mature C fasciatum in the invertsonals.... I'm adding him to my growing list of males.... :'(
So far, I also have these immature males:
P regalis
P fasciata
G areostriatum
G rosea
A seemanni
A hentzi
Aphonopelma sp (Cuervavaca)
A geniculata

What a bummer!!!!

Just think of the all spiderlings you may get from them.;) I don't let it bother me when I get males, I just look twice as hard for adult females.

got it Atrax....
Deifiler...I don't know that they are calmer, but they don't seem to be as defensive as their female counterparts IME.
For some reason, I'm not nearly as frightened of male Usambaras, for instance, as I am of the females...
Don't ask me why!
