Well, today I decided to attempt a breeding of some wolf spiders. I began by placing the female and male enclosures next to each other for a few hours, where they could see each other. Then, I set up a larger mating container and here is the results.


First off, the spiders in question.

May I?

Ill take that as a yes!





Well those are some of the better photos. Who knows from here, it was kind of a crap shoot to begin. To be honest, I was not even 100% sure these are the same species. They were captured at the same location, in the same habitat, very near each other where there were many other similiar ones around.
