I had the opportunity to meet Barbara Reger at the invertebrate conference in Arizona last week. She has a better grasp of tarantula biology than anyone else I know. She found the male tarantula pictured above, who was in search of a female. We hoped to observe tarantula mating (since tarantulas aren’t shy) but were unsuccessful in that pursuit.
