Last night I paired up Poecilotheria regalis. Here are a couple of interesting pics.
Is your epigastric furrow dialated, or are you just happy to see me? :)

Female went out looking for the source of the tapping and drumming. She was out, then back in, then out again.

LaRiz,

I did the exact same thing last night. Unfortunately, I had to leave for work and didn't get to see any action. He was drumming, she would respond and advance, and he would move away. When I came home from work this morning, he was grooming himself, no longer drumming, and she was back in her hide. I would assume they hooked up since the behavior was different.

I think I'll leave him in for a few days, then take him out and let my other male have a shot at her.

Excellent pix! Let me know when/if the tiny T's are ready to be unloaded! Have been trying to get ahold of one for ever! I have a P. fasciata, however

My females container is quite large compared to the males, so I just put the males container inside the females and took the lid off. It really isn't that hard to round them up though. Just work cautiously with a long handled paintbrush and give them an "out". If you make that "out" the container you want them to go into, you've got it made.
