Thanks, and B. smithi are pretty easy to work with too. About a year and half after that picture that male matured and she eventually ended up eating him. I paired them 5 times and am hoping for a sac, but I never confirmed a successful insert. Fingers are crossed.

B. smithi are (generally speaking) docile enough to do that with.

Definitely not recommended if you're new to the hobby.

Yes, we have a MM. My Smithi was sold to me as a Female, but I'm
keeping my fingers crossed until she?? has another molt.
