Cyriocosmus ritae feeling randy!


Apr 24, 2020
I like dwarf species and my favorite of the Cyriocosmus are the ritae. Of my trio, one matured out male on the 15th. Then over this past weekend I decided to dig around in my largest ritae's burrow to pull an old molt that had been there for a while since it's carapace is bigger than this mature male. Well, that one's a female! Cut to today and the male has emerged from his burrow to wander for the first time, and BOTH of the other ritae are drumming like mad. Fingers crossed I can pull this pairing off soon and get an eggsack to follow!
