Male hooked out within the last 2 months. ( used Timo Raab's site to help make certain of the ID of the male)

Female has been in my care for almost a year.

Placed both KK's in a larger 20 tall Aq.

while I was in the room nothing happened. ( at all no movement on either part )


turned out the lights stepped out.

later: came back they were in the same tank. female has crossed into the male's enclosure. male was at the entrance of burrow.

watched for an hour. nothing, nada.

went to bed, woke up to her eating him.

Hopefully there was some pairings.

My first breeding attempt :D

I paired my female, Rise, with my male, Berkeley Labyrinth for the first time on May 11th.
The male was shark tanked in the female's enclosure since he matured. Within a month, she molted. I fed her as much as she would take for several weeks/another month or so before attempting the pairing. I took the lid off the male's tank, and placed pillows around the female's tank to keep everything dark. The male was pretty quick to come across the female's tunnel web and start tapping. Pairing was quick and effecient, and he got several good insertions before she made a lunge for him. He made it up the side of the tank without further pursuit. I wrangled him back into his enclosure within hers, and put the lid back on.

On June 24th, we did the second pairing. The male was much more hesitant - he knew he was on thin ice this time. In the end, he wasn't quick enough for her... after several good insertions, she got the better of him :( I let her eat the male, and also immediately began feeding her.

It was but a few weeks later that she really started to look large. We moved locations once during that time, without any negative effect on her.

On August 9th, she laid a sac in her web tunnel - like a bridge, right in the middle of it.

On Septemper 7th, I checked on Rise to find her surrounded by cute little 1st instar slings :D

Aside from the risk of the female eating the sac, I now know why people pull sacs and put them in incubators! Trying to get several hundred .25" fragile slings out of very well done webbing is a pain in the butt! lol

Finally got all the babies out of Rise's enclosure... pulled the entire sac, with 5 stragglers that got their own deli cups. We have been working on sorting the sac... count so far is 207 or so slings, with another 50-60 still piled together with the sac :eek:
