      I'm going to wait until after her next meal, then try again.

      I'm having a hard time pairing/mating my P. Met's, seconds after I introduce the male, they both drum instantly, then after a while the female move away then stay in her hide, that was a week ago.. not sure if they made it in the early morning, but I'm hoping that they did, have to wait for a month for the result, I already move the male but someone told me to reintroduce the male, just to be sure

      Update

      Since attempting to pair my AF P. met which I co-habed with a MM several times, I've noticed her rubbing her furrow with her legs. I remember reading somewhere that this is a good sign, but it could just be her grooming.
      I never did see them hook up, but I did give them a lot of alone time. She's also never been a big eater, so I don't really notice if she's getting any fatter.

      Hoping for the best.

      what i did is introduce them last week of September, not sure if they made it so I reintroduce the male and co-habed it till the last week of October (to be sure), after that, I feed the female with dubia or lats once a week, sometimes i gave her meal worms, light misting the enclosure twice a month to maintain the humidity

      the male is still fine, he SW again last week

      the abdomen of the female is still big, maybe there will be a second clutch (hoping)
