I'm in the process of pairing up some LP's, but my female is not wanting to take the male. She thwacks the ground by him, when he starts doing his jig to her and scares him off.

She's been living at room temperature prior to pairing, and I raised her to about 85F now. Her substrate is somewhat dry. She molted 3 weeks ago and ate several roaches since. Her carapace is slightly larger than his, but his leg span is slightly larger. She's about 8".

Any tips to get her more in the mood?

Dang dude. Do you suggest I do that? I did that with H. lividum. One of my males lived with her for a month without getting eaten, and then I sent him to do some 50/50's.

My female has been underground ever since. I haven't caught a single glimpse of her.

I could do that cohabitation thing, but the male isn't mine. He's a loaner for a 50/50. I don't want to put him in too much danger if I don't have to. Did your female eat the male?

Then try again....if ya have to give the MM back, I'll likely have one for ya ;)

I can always count on you. I know that. You are by far the most giving person on the boards.

I'm breeding them for the achievement of it, not for the slings. It's a learning experience for me, and I'm fulfilling that male's purpose in life.

If I fail miserably, I'll know who to call. ;)

It's much appreciated.
