Advertisement Success!!! Very excited to be the first U.S. captive raised, bred, & then successful hatching out of this beautiful stunning specie. Successful Breeding : Took place on approximatly 2-15-2011 Sac made 3-27-2011 Breeding 1: (Again one of the most amazing breeding I have seen): Female and Male were introduced and the male entered the enclosure tapping, but hesitant. The female began leg shaking and immediatly pursude the male. In fact, she followed the male on a journey unlike I had ever seen. She followed him up the side of the enclosure then stopped, he ran more out onto the top of the cage and she followed. Again this continued up the side of the wall, and literally around the room until the male finally inserted. After a short 5 seconds of insertion he pulled back and the female amazingly retreated back to her enclosure. I carried the male back to his as he was trying to run around the room. Breeding 2: Almost the exact same retreat/pursue method, but the male being more confident moved in earlier and mated on the side of the enclosure. After a quick insertion the female wrapped him and ate him quickly. At 22 days of incubation the sac looked great and full, but I noticed the female biting abnormaly at the sac and then began to eat it. I immediatly brushed her away and grabbed the sac to find 28 eggs with legs, 5 non fertile eggs, and 7 of the eggs with legs were not in good shape from the mothers eating attempts. I did what I could to clean them off and managed to save a few of the at risk eggs with tweezers, needle, and paper towell. After 41 days and all was said and done I now have 25 very fast 2nd instar spiderlings zooming around.
