Both my MM G. pulchripes and my MM LP have done this:

They seem to have built a tiny little hammock type web from edge of enclosure to ground. Then they crawl into it and lie upside down for a little bit, then mozy along like everything's cool.

Both are very large and just molted a few weeks ago. What the deuce? :confused:

It's a sperm web - they deposit sperm onto the webbing and then load up their palps with it.

Sweet merciful heavens, that's sort of what I'd hoped.

Bring on the ladies! Haha.

Thanks, Cass :D
