Latrodectus bishopi mating

A bit of a funny story. The female was acting pissy, attacking the male. She lunged at him and he dodged it. He then ran up her leg and started mating with her. She complied.

Oh man you're gonna have your hands full lol. Congrats wow the sp Mexico are probably the prettiest
Yeah.. although I already do kind of. I have like 150 slings of various species. If you count stuff im keeping communal that becomes 300 plus.

Anyway, thanks! I’m super happy. The female matured August 25 so I’m sure she’s viable. I have another from early June that may be pushing it a bit who I’ll try in a few days. I totally agree that they look the best. For some reason people love to not breed Latrodectus here.

L. elegans is next :)
After that I’ll see if I can get some pallidus and dahli perhaps.

Thanks, but there are definitely better, more experienced people out there. I’m still pretty new at this.

I've got to say though @NYAN I'm glad your here to share your experience, spiders, and photos with us. There may be people who are more experienced but you have easily got one of the best collections I've seen in a while, at least in the US.

Thanks,

I'm digging those L. elegans! What is their venom like? Standard Lactrodectus strength?

Thanks,

Not sure, haven’t been bitten yet. I would assume it’s like the other black Latrodectus. They live in very secluded areas of South Eastern Asia. I would think not many bites have happened.

Gotcha.
Do you plan on being bitten? The way you said it sounds like your preparing for another bite report attempt or something.

Thanks,
