    I just got this beautiful Brachypelma Albopilosum on Friday 03/29/19. She ate that day, and then the last two days she built this cocoon. I though she was going to molt, but now I see that puddle of yellow underneath her and I am wondering what is happening? I have several T’s already, but have never bred or been interested in breeding. Help?

    Looks like eggs. Soon she will spin a protective cocoon around them.

    Looks like eggs waiting to be spun into a sac. Cool picture. You don’t see that often.

    yes those are eggs, don't mess with them, the mother T will do what they do for a while.

    You are about to have hundreds of little slings crawling around in the coming times.

    good luck with all those babies.

    Disturb her as little as possible. Dump some water in the substrate, so moisure increase. Decrease some ventilation if it is plenty, and just wait. It may not hatch, but it may hatch aswell! Goid luck with it!

    Not that I would be unhappy about receiving a female that had an egg sac a week after I got her.

    But wow, I am curious as to where you got her from. I don’t understand who would do that and why.

    And congratulations, you are going to be a grandpa. :)

    If it is fertile, and hatches that is!?

    Two probable options - it is unfertilized or it was WC.

    Aah, yep makes sense. It is hard to believe that they are still do WC with those. CB are everywhere in the states. There is going to be 200 more in Idaho soon. ;)

    I got her from a local pet shop where she wasn’t being kept very well. They get a lot of their stock from California Zoological supply, but I don’t know if she was WC or CB and they sent her by mistake, or even possibly they gave up on her laying the sac, who knows. I hope it isn’t, but it also may be unfertilized. I guess we’ll see.

    Sorry about the late reply. I got notifications for the first couple of replies but not the last few, so I didn’t even realize this had gotten much attention.
