Tried breeding my male P regalis with both of my females tonight.

He would tap up a storm and as soon as they got close he bolted like a wuss...


So hes getting the shark tank treatment good luck little buddy you went from high chances of a long life to me not caring if you are there in the morning.

YOUR REPLACEABLE!!! WITH A BIG STRAPPING STUD THAT KNOWS HOW TO THROW THOSE PALPS AROUND!

how many attempts already? :)

so far from my own and a coupla close buddies experience, you need to give 'em 2-3 chances a coupla days/ sometimes a week apart. granted, these were the 'easier' sp - G pulchripes, B smithi, P murinus, B albopilosum.

keep pluggin at it, i'm sure he'll man up!

Could be he knows something you don't...

More than likely yes.

This was more of a joke post from being frustrated listening to him taping next to their cages for a week and then doing nothing when given the chance.

how long ago did she molt?

pokies cohabitate pretty well IMO. i had 2.1 living together for almost a year with no problem, never saw any inserts but got a good eggsac some time towards the end.

She molted probably a month or so ago same with him.

Both were tapping up a storm and had one encounter but i dont think he inserted.

The other female hasnt molted in my care yet which ive had her for maybe 2 or 3 months.

Give him time. With my pokies I've noticed a reluctant male would do fine with the ladies after I gave him a break for a bit. Keep him well fed and hydrated and try to pair him in a couple weeks. They live for a bit of time (my older males are going on 13.5 months and still dropping sperm webs) so a few weeks shouldn't hurt much.

Dyn, I'll play along on that note- what a effing wuss!

On the other hand, I hope you get a sac from the quickie. :)

Give him more time with her. Maybe hes playing hard to get :rolleyes: did he make a sperm web after he molted? maybe he just isnt ready. Gotta load ur guns before you hit the bar. Good luck with the breeding.

Yes he has.

He molted then a week or week and a half later I saw him make a sperm web and tear it down. its been a week and half or two since then as well.


After seeing that first video he might have actually got it with one of the females. I'm hoping anyway.

A guy hoping that his own little one gets laid. Hm, what a world we live in.
