Acquired both a male and female adults recently. I let both of them settle in and have a few meals each before introducing them. On recommendation from Anastasia I also put some of the females webbing in with the male and vice versa a couple days before their "date". When introduced both inividuals drummed quite a bit until they found each other. They looked like they were getting friendly when one of the males rear feet slipped and he sort of fell. This freaked out both spiders and they went running for different corners. I let him live in her cage for a week when I pulled him out and let him rest for a few days. He refused to eat so I put him back in with her for another week or so. I never did see any more positive activity. Yesterday I found one of his legs and a chunk of his body. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he did his job well.
