I recently was awakened by my P. rufilata. My "spider closet" is next to my bedroom. The other night I heard "tap, tap, tap". I got up to find that my male P. rufliata was tapping on the side of his enclosure. Oddly enough the object of his affection was a female P. regalis in the adjacent container. So do I let him have his way with her, die a virgin,or ship him off to a friend who has a female P. rufliata? If I decide not to mate him, how much longer will he live? I should say also that he's got a legspan of about 7 inches and the female regalis is an 8 incher.
