    Over the last month or two, I paired my female a few times with both MM's I had, and this is a scene from one of the pairings:

    I know it's a terrible photo, but if you look closely, the white blob in the middle of the picture is an eggsac! :D

  10. Very nice! This is becoming my favorite genus of tarantulas, but I haven't had a chance to work with this species yet.

    Thanks guys! :D

    I'm hoping she does, but she's still on the small side so I wouldn't be surprised if she molted after this sac.

    Thanks, Chris. Even if it's good I'm not sure I'll be sending any of these out unless it's a massive sac. Probably going to hold all of them back. :D

    Thanks, Bill. They're an awesome sp. to work with. EXTREMELY fast!

    Hahahahaha! Thanks. :)

    Thanks, Sean. I just hope the sac turns out good! No idea how long these MM's will last.

    A better shot of the sac:

    It's just a little bigger than a pea. :D

    Here's a thread I made back when I got them showing their size:

    Talk about tiny!

    I decided to pull the eggsac today to find a bunch of eggs. Although none of them have developed yet, most appear oblong and I think they will turn to EWL's soon. I have my fingers crossed. :)

    So at 2i, these guys are no more than 1/8 inch, right? The one in the other thread you linked above looked a touch bigger than that but I wasn't sure if that was 2i.
