Hello,

I really like the species T.apophysis, and I am thinking I may want to breed them. I have never bred tarantulas before. How do I go about breeding tarantulas? Do I just get two of the same species and put them together? Please explain how I breed tarantulas. Thanks,

Probably wouldn't be the best species to start breeding with only because they are one of the more difficult and defensive ones. I'll let people that have actually bred this species chime in though.

Heh :)
Is not an easy specie to breed. I have mated them before, althought never got a sack...(yet ;) ).
They are similar than the other Theraphosa, although males tend to be aggressive also.

Pick your times right, stimulate the wet season...you might get lucky ;)

PS: Have your female FRESHLY MOLTED and full before attempting it.

Good luck. This is one species I am missing in my collection. I would like to see more of them available.
