    How gorgeous! It's nice to see someone photographing the male, since they're just as stunning as the females. Where did you find these two?

    Oh they're all over the place down in these parts. Once you develop an eye you can spot them in pretty much every yard. These were taken in my driveway and front porch, respectively.

    Interesting color pattern on the male.

    Reminds me, I need to get a male for my female L. variolus.

    So when do they lay eggs? Whats the offspring survival rate? Are they hard to care for?

    Very cool to keep if you have the right setup... I'd be really scared if I couldn't find one in the cage though.

    I've bred them before, it's pretty easy. And the survival rate is somewhere around....too many tiny spiders to count.
