First pairing of these guys.
The male made me sweat a little when he decided to run up my tongs onto my shoulder when i was first moving him, but once he was in place he didn't waste any time. I see one good insertion, what do you guys think?

You mated the devils children.... Congrats, hope you get a sac!!!
No kidding. I have dozens of pokies but these guys are the only ones in my collection that I'm actually afraid of. When the male ran up my arm I thought my heart was gonna explode

Why does one gender have an all black underside and the other an all green?

Because almost all mature males are fading in their colors when mature. Most get really ugly, i can only think of one species that really is stunning when mature.
That is the Pamps

Those poor MM. They have a Herculean job to do under life-threatening conditions, they have ridiculously short life-spans compared to their female counterparts, and they lose their looks in the end. At the very least, someone needs to establish a national MM appreciation day.

Having a S. calceatum bolt up a person's arm is probably the most nerve wracking tarantula related thing I can imagine happening. Kudos for keeping calm.

As are Phormics
Quite true, and the Pamphobeteus sp. platyomma aka the Brazilian Pink Bloom is one of the few examples where the MM is often much more brilliant in color than the female. Funny how only a few species turned out that way.
