my brocklehursti just spent about an hour spinning a web and is now undersneath it upside down rubbing his abdomen against it. is this a sperm web?

It certainly sounds like it. Better start looking for a female soon, huh?

Probably is. If it is he will probably tear it down soon. One of my just matured male Poecilotheria regalis just put a drop of sperm on the underside of his web. It's pretty cool to watch him go through the whole process.

Awsome. Who are you sending him to? I just had a hatch of nearly 100 Heteroscodra maculata slings.

Doug Wheeler & Pdrake's brocklehursti

Very cool news, Perry! Doug's a great guy. I'm sure
you'll enjoy working with him. I wish you luck on getting
brocklehursti babies. Even thought geniculatas are really
cool, brocklehursti's are even more rare and more expensive.
If anyone has a good chance of getting babies, it's Doug! :)

What Happened to Your Other Pic??

Hiya Perry,

What happened to the other pic you posted at petbugs?
This one is nice, but I'm pretty sure the other one was a
different pose where you could see his "hooks"

I really thought the other pic was VERRRYYY CCCOOOLLLL!!!

Wysi :)
