So I bought a MM A. versicolor about a week ago and he hasn't eaten or webbed at all. He matured on 12/20. Is this normal?

Yes. My A. versicolor molted MM in July 2010. He has eaten four times since. He is EXTREMELY active still, though very thin. My friends always ask me: 'When did you start collecting daddy-long-legs spiders?'

Expect him to make a sperm webs and tear them down. Unless you catch him in the act, you probably wont see it. Mine has made a total of 7 sperm webs (that I have seen and documented), however, mine was also communally housed with the female until just recently. What I mean by active is: He is MUCH more skittish, and moves a lot more when disturbed.
