Well, I put a different female with my male Orthochirus and she didn't push him. She was actually willing to mate with him. I got them on video and will post it tomorrow but here's a few pics for you guys. It's been 30 minutes and they are still dancing. I guess my other female from last night is already gravid. That's why she didn't want to mate. I will place him with another female on monday or tuesday and see if they will mate or if she's already gravid.






Video will be posted tomorrow.

Mating finally finished after 2 hrs. The male finally decided to deposit his spermatophore 10 minutes after I re-arranged their flat slate. That's right! I moved their slate while mating because it's obvious that the male couldn't find a spot because he was dragging her everywhere for 2 hrs.

Few more mating pics


spermatophore (sorry that the pic is blurry, I have no photo skills), successful!



Look how tiny they are :D

Best of luck!:clap: I think 8-10 months gestation.. So a little bit of patience is needed.

What species is this? (from Israel?)

I think it's O.s.n from Israel. Only 8-10 months gestation? but it takes them forever to molt :mad:

I have 4 Gravid female. 1 of the female looks like she will pop soon but I hope that she doesn't give me eggs. If everything turns out ok. We should have some cb babies in Canada :D

ROCK! Two hours! I think they would need a cricket after all that. Bet the babies are tiny!
