He's already MM???
Yep, i don't know why you mentioned "already" word, but i assume he is a lot smaller than you thought it will be when matured. I personally had one MM subfusca where he was barely 3", and they can go even smaller

Yep I expected him to be like 5-5/2 inches but he is just 4 inches. Oh well

Agreed that looks like emboli. He's the right size for maturity too. Most OW males mature much smaller than NW males.

Get him out on the rounds and get his spawn out there :p

Definitely putting him for a breeding loan, so he can do something (other than eating)before he passes away.

If he would even eat. It's tough being male in the arachnid world.

By mentioning it as a 'her' on your first post, you assumed it was a female? Did you buy it as a female?Or was it unsexed?
