Thrilling new developments with the lab spiders! Photos below the fold.
The first big news: Sara spun an egg sac overnight. It’s huge. We complimented her on her pregnancy.
Second big news: all of my spiders so far have been female, and I finally found a male this morning. We introduced him to Amanda. Amanda seemed receptive, doing a lot of touchy-feely stuff, while Harry was blunter and just charged straight for the epigyne. Maybe this romance will turn out well. Maybe Harry will be a shriveled corpse in the morning. We shall wait and see.
Check back in tomorrow to learn of Harry’s fate!
(My wife is in charge of naming the spiders. Seems a bit friendlier than a code with random letters and numbers.)
