    Little over a year ago I got a sling P cambridgei that ended up being a mature male so I decided to get him a girl.
    I had the female for a couple of months now, she molted over 4 weeks ago and ate well so I decided to introduce them.
    I couldn't believe how smooth it went, she came out of her hide right away, flapping around hehe. At one point when she showed her fangs I thought he's a goner but it all went unimaginable well!

    I'll try and repeat the pairing in two days, feed her well the day before so she doesn't think of him as a nice snack :p

    Sorry if the video is bad but I didn't want to disturb them while getting their groove on.

    That looked like a successful mating. @Marija, you are a natural. Damn you for living in Croatia. I’d love a sling.

    Looked like that to me too and I hope I get a healthy sac. Knowing me I’ll give half away as a gift so if you find yourself a bit closer to Croatia let me know :D

    So I tried again and it was successful altho they had a little argument at the end. No one is harmed despite that :)

    I was just thinking about you there... Let me guess you’re drinking a freshly made Lavazza coffee?
