I really like the metasoma of this species. Very Happy

Methinks your female may be gravid . . .

I guess you'll have to wait and see then. Smile

By the way, did you notice the first two pictures are the same file?

that's where my mind went at first (I watch waaaaay too much BBC, Damn you Ramsay!!!!)

i love the urodacus genus, and its a shame we have yet to see them over here in the states in any mentionable numbers, but i find them, as well as the spiraling burrows fascinating.

desert species with long lifespans typically have gestations that last a long time sometimes up to a year and a half.

Huzzah! cheers

I'd suggest separating them, so she doesn't make a meal out of her mate.
