Hey everyone!

I've got 15 T's, and my family's been into this hobby for years. However, i noticed one of my G.rosea's doing something odd -- He's on his back, upsidedown, but kind of propped up against the window of the tank, flicking his Right 2nd Leg (2 after the chelicerae). Also, he's got himself under a thick thick thick white web, and he keeps flicking his tibia and weaving more web. He's just molted not 3 weeks ago, and he's about 4inches and around a couple years old. He's REAL agressive, been nipped by him about 3 times. He eats mice and anoles, won't even touch crickets, and eats about 2 times a week.

My family's always split the T's up -- me and my father take the females and my mother and sister take the males. We've got probably 1,500 spiders all together and i must say this is the first time i've ever seen any spider do this -- could this be the start of the sperm web? I don't know...

ALso, this spider always lays stretched out, just like my Indian Ornamental...

any help?!!

much thanks!

From the description it sounds like you've got a mature male making a sperm web.

i'd be breaking so many moral rules i've took care of that bad boy in the way that he needs it... he needs some hot girly-T love... some ass-slapping spermathicae-breaking sex...

alas, the only other 2 female G.rosea's that i could breed him with a pure succubuses, born to literally suck the life out of any male that comes near them...

seriously, i've tried to breed them 5 times a piece, and each time they just end up eating the male...

we've been breeding T's for years in my family, as i come from a family of T lovers....

its to the point where i think my female G.rosea's are just lesbians... maybe i'll put on some Indigo Girls and watch some hot G-on-G T action :)



sure enough, he's cleaning himself on this web...
man, are you as suprised as me that I havent seen a sperm web in over 15 years? like i said, the males in my family take over the females.. then we send em down to the girls in my family to breed..

thanks for the info!
