How do spiders have sex?


2 Answers

Both the male and female reproductive organs are at the rear of the abdomen, but spiders don't mate by coupling these organs. The male deposits sperm onto a small web and picks it up on the end of his pedipalps. The male deposits the sperm in the female's genital opening.
