Boy it just sucks when one of your babes turns out to be a male unless you have a female of the same species. I know how you feel. I am sorry!

Thats to bad, but I've heard males can live another 18 months or so, if well taken care of. I guess a breeding loan is the way to go, if it takes.
I have a red phase G. rosea that I'm " not " going to breed, and see how long he lives.

Can't wait to see this guy all stretched out. You definately need to breed him. Looks awesome. How does his temperment/behavior compare to an A. genic? (If you know)

Big Dragonfly...he's more spastic then my A geniculata. Seems more nervous, and you never know if he will go into a threat posture, or take off running, each time the container is opened! (on the floor).
Very neat tarantula though, voracious eater (like the genic) and will actually hunt down and pounce on his prey like a complete killing machine!
Very active, never hiding, and quite the personality.
I will have to get another one when he's gone, for sure

ow! sorry about your run of luck with so many males, hopefully someone will have a female for him.
