At the moment I have a mature male and three females, but sadly, those three females are not in the best molt cycles so there might not be a good pairing/sac. I'm also still waiting for a sperm web to be made. But either way, I hope something works out since producing my favorite species is one of my life-goals.I got a P. ornata sling that turned out to be male, but I am thankful for him. I think it's amazing to have the chance to keep such a rare, beautiful animal, even though I'll only have him for a few years. I've noticed that too about Theraphosa species....it seems like there are so many females and so few males available. Kind of the opposite of other genera like Poecilotheria. I've read that they can be challenging to breed in captivity. I think it's great that you're willing to take on that challenge and make a contribution like that to the hobby. We need captive bred animals now more than ever.
