My male Ornata has finally Matured, and I want to put him in with my female. I have never tried breeding before but now I have a mature male and a female so I am going to give it a shot. My questions are is there any special requirements for introducing the male, How long should I leave him in with her. She is in a 5.5 gallon tank is the tank big enough for both of them or should I set up a bigger one. I have searched but I want to make sure I get it right. Also has anyone ever had a Male eat the female? I dont want to lose my Girl she is my Favorite Tarantula. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Right now he is in a tank next to hers and he is drumming like he's in a rock band at night.

The breeding reports subforum and search function both work wonders. ;)

I had a topic awhile back on males eating females. I'll see if I can find it for you. It does happen, but is pretty rare apparently.
