Advertisement HI, this is my first post on these boards, My name is Den :') Can't believe I hadn't made an account here before! but yeah, I've kept tarantulas now for 9 years and have had a wide variety of species Right, now this is the reason as to why I am deciding to make a post. I have kept an AF H. lividum for 2 years now. When I purchased her she was an unsexed WC specimen, due to her more bulky larger size of that of her species, as well as being provided with her latest molt, she was fairly easy to sex. Right, well 2 days ago now, I decided to carefully dig up her burrow to give her tank a complete make over, as she had been using the same 6 inches of substrata for 2 years, and to my surprise I found an egg sac :O I am fully aware that tarantulas once mated can hold on to the seaman for quite some time, for use when creating an egg sac, but 2 years?!?!?!? I carefully removed the sac from the burrow, and used tweezers to carefully open it just to see whether it was a food parcel, egg sac or what, and it was indeed an egg sac containing 51 very healthy looking eggs, as well as 1 black shrivelled one of which I disposed of. The others I put in my incubator, and will give it at least 2 months before I dispose of them, or if I'm lucky enough, will separate them into individual pill jars..... but I really would like your opinions on this mysterious egg sac! Throughout my 9 years of keeping T's I have never once seen something like this..... certainly not 2 YEARS after the tarantula was first purchased...... and even then........ the store had been holding on to her for a good few months before I purchased her anyway. So yeah. Discuss please?
