I agree LOL!! I had a P. metallica that was sexed 100% male....and looked it...ended up being female, not that I complained!!! {D Chris, That HUGE P. striata MM I got from you mated my female and I got a great sac from her...he is still doing great and still eating. I have to say that is the biggest MM I have ever seen!

Awesome man!I'm glad he got the job done!He was def a pretty leggy spider haha!I think perhaps the only mature male I've seen bigger than that was a massive ultimate male Lampropelma violaceopes.
