Spider (image) Aarhus University Share Print E-Mail Caption This photo shows a female with a white gift, and a male about to transfer sperm to the sperm storage organs under the rear part of the female's body. The male has silky threads going to the gift from the silk glands at the rear of its abdomen. This enables the male to remain attached to the gift.
