I had this MM Ornata in with the female for a day, went & checked on them....found a sperm web and they were paring up...went to get something to eat came back & I guess she decided to get something to eat to.

That female P. ornata means business. At least she's pretty. :)

Good luck on getting another egg sack, Rob. You seem to have pokie enclosure's down to a science and are having great success with breeding. I'm sure this time will be no different.

molt and eating

last time she ate was just one cricket 6 weeks ago since then she has refused food. last molt was about a year ago I don't have the exact date. but i have kinda handled her about a month ago meaning 3 of her legs were on my hand and then i chickened out lol. i keep her about 75 degrees and i leave her in a very dark room only checking on her every other day.

I was actually maybe thinking that by the carapace.....either way I will still trade for it!!
I would to! Make sure its not going to molt in transit. Maybe it would be good to wait until she molts. Sounds like she is really over due. Would be a shame to lose that beauty. :D
