Rufus the Platycryptus undatus

I finally found a male of the same species as Radinka, my pet Platycryptus undatus.  However, 5 days after his introduction into her cage, she died.  I had already kept her as a pet for a year, so she was older than that—the oldest spider I have ever had to this date.  It’s too bad I couldn’t find her a mate sooner.  Click on the animation below to see more photos of Rufus.
