Sex in the bathroom - arachnid style

It's been a long time since the last blog - I did not expect such a great reaction to my book The Memory Code, then I went straight into writing the companion book, Unlocking The Memory Code. I still love my spiders and watch them every day, but I have been neglecting this blog. I have lots to add from the last season. But first, tonight's events:

I went to have my shower. As always, I checked Daddy-long-legs under the shelf. I suspect that she is soon to be a Mummy-long-legs. She had a very enthusiastic male making a pass at her from a few centimetres away. By the time I had finished my shower, he had won her over. I grabbed the camera just in time to photograph the act.

I call her Ivy-long-legs because she lives behind the ivy pot plant.

I'll update as soon as I see the next episode in Ivy's life. 

Love my spiders!


  1. So i have a spider couple who just laid an egg sack just yesterday and they are doing this, are they trying for another already?

  2. This is a really interesting observation. The female will store sperm until she is ready, so she may be receptive to a male but not use his sperm for ages. I'd be interested to know what happens next!
