Ok...
a statement, and a question for those of you intrepid souls that dare venture into the realm of breeding tarantulas.
I have always tried it at night (breeding tarantulas...in case anyone is NOT paying attention!)
I heard somewhere that that is possibly the best time, mimicking nature (although, how CAN you possibly?!)
Well, Vayu Son's male just made another sperm web, so I decided (having nothing better to do) to mate him with Verde again.
She promptly came OUT of her container, and walked right over to him. He was quite intimidated...but was willing to give it a go.
I sat there with my plastic spoon like the hammer of god.
After sucessfully inserting both palps, he ran away like a good little male spider ;)
So, my question is this: DOES it *really* make any difference on the time of day, for mating tarantulas?
See, I eventually got to the point of this post!

i play sex tapes to all my male spiders every night to effectively increase their libido by %30.

morning, evening, or night... they cannot be resisted.

well, that must explain everything then ;)
Thanks for the enlightenment LOL
He certainly *is* quite the stud...he is now bathing in his water dish :)
So, I guess that answers my question: your G rosea, at any rate, doesn't care WHAT time of day it is...is that right?!

Savian,
my room is quite dark as well, except for early morning, the sun shines on the curtains, and it is a bit bright.
With the lamp off, it's quite dim. The only tarantulas I never see are the C crayshawi and H lividum.
Then again, I never see them even if I come in here at midnight.
My Usambaras are out and about, since the male can't decide if he's living IN her burrow with her, or not! They are amazing to watch.
I had the lamp on in here this morning, and it was pretty light. It just didn't seem to deter my G rosea lovers at all...hence my question in the first place ;)

You'll have to really ignore the messy desk though :)
