    This weekend I got a surprise. I had two females Hyllus diardi that laid an eggsack. The seller told me they were CB. So the sacks should be infertile. I took the sacks away but kept them just to be sure. This sunday I found this. I just wanted to share this with you. IMG_20181211_173939.jpg

    Weird, I'm wondering if the seller made a mistake then. There isn't any parthenogenesis in salticids that I know of, though I suppose since we just learned about one that produces "milk", so why not?

    Thanks! There still in a nimf stage, so I leave them with te sack and don't touch them. When they get more mobile I will count them. There are two more sacks so I will have my hands full with them.

    They are doing very well. There adult colors are showing and about sub adult right now. Sold already alot. I am in europe. So if you are in the US that is going to be a problem.

    These are normally WC from SE Asia and exported. Not many are actually CB.

    The parents were WC. They came in already mated. Im setting up different bloodlines so I can keep the breeding going.
