    Hello! I mated my female obt on May 3. A week later I put the males back in to mate. But I don't know if it worked. Today I found that female obt had woven a lot of webs. Is this a sign of pregnancy? What should I do next?

    Can someone tell me what an “obt” really is? Is it an old world species? Google was not very clear on this either.

    Pterinochilus murinus* Orange Baboon Tarantula. Old world. Shortened to OBT in a lot of cases, also now known as an Orange Bob.

    OBT stands for:
    Orange Baboon Tarantula
    Orange Bitey Thing
    Orange BOB for short

    This is the species Pterinochilus Murinus it is an Old World Tarantula.

    Pelinobius muticus is not OBT, it is a king baboon.

    No, females do not produce eggs that quick and if it is an eggsac it's probably the fastest i've ever seen an eggsac being made in such short period of time. I highly doubt it's an eggsac if it happened in about 2 weeks, because that seems almost impossible. Normally it takes months 2 months at shortest that I know of.

    Thanks Saw that on Google, but didn’t think there are too many Orange Baboons out there.

    Apologies, I get the two mixed up and a quick search gave me muticus. I'll ammend my post.

    I have had egg sacs from Orange Bobs three weeks after pairing.

    She simply weaves more webs for the family, and does not have eggs.

    It is early yet... it certainly can take months! Insure that you are feeding her a lot!

    I've paired a female and got an eggsac the next day. Females will carry eggs even without pairing with a male(hence phantom sacs).

    OP: this species lays hammocks sacs and not the classic sphere shaped eggsac that a lot of Theraphosidae make. Shine a light through the newly webbed area and look for a yellow mass.

    Normally when i have bred this speicies, it took some weeks for the female to make eggsacks. Not days after mating! I dont believe that! They may become more active, webbing alot. But actual egsack construction takes some weeks, maybe 3-8 weeks, depending on individual and other factors. And as people have said, they spin a slinglike eggsack, that they will sit on and protect. Not a round ball!
