Male has one damaged pedipalp. Still able to mate?


New Member
Hi all, my mm T. Albopilosus has one mildly damaged pedipalp and front leg. His pedipalp is intact, just has a tiny spot of hemolymph leakage from a minor injury that appears to have clotted fine. His front leg appears slightly nubby at the end, but is overall the same length as the other and the point of damage is small. Would I still be able to pair him with my female? Planned to first introduce them two weeks from now. If he is able to pair (with supervision of course) any advice would be welcome.
