Hello Everyone

I just successfully mated my two Cyclosternum fasciatum (Costa Rican Tiger Rump), but there is more to this. In all the breeding videos I have seen, this was very different. Maybe one of you have seen this in these tarantulas, they were introduced and just sat there legs touching for at least 10 min not moving at all(Except now and then he rubbed his legs against hers, she did the same). After this initial nerve wracking stage, he proceeded to start to fertilize her this took at least another 10 min slow procedure nothing erratic like I saw with Brachypelma Vagans. So anyone with experience with them, or who have seen same behaviour in a other genus please reply. Otherwise just comment lol.

Every species is different, every mating is different.

Sometimes it takes seconds for an insert to happen, then other times it takes hours even days and then sometime it ends in the male becoming a snack.

With all matings, tapping, touching or alerting the female that the male is present and waiting for the female to respond to his advances is part of the mating process.

Sometimes there is none of the above and the male gets stormed by the female, if the male is good and fast enough he can charm the female or get away if not he becomes her meal.

But yes, C. fasciatum seem to be the slower time takers to mate.

Congrats on a successful attempt.

Well I could almost set it as a romantic meet, looked like he took her hands(legs) holding reassuring her everything will be fine lol. Just needed to add the candles, oh and backdrop music.
