    What time of year does N chromatus lay egg sacs in the wild?

    Not sure when they lay egg sacs in the wild, but I know when mine flicks it hairs at me in captivity!!!!! Everytime I open the cage. LOL. Sorry, couldn't be more helpful.
     
  3. Hah I know that feeling!

    Any particular reason you want to know? If it's for captive breeding purposes, you don't need to simulate any particular climatic conditions to induce sac dropping, etc.

    I would read through the breeding reports section and make sure your answer isn't in there, and if not, message the users who have posted in the breeding reports to see what they did.

    Males and females don't grow at the same rate they would in the wild, due to differences in captive temps and feeding, nor mature at the specific times they do in the wild, so I wouldn't expect egg laying to follow a defined pattern either.

  7. My girl laid eggs a few days ago. I wanted to look up weather patterns for the months N chromatus would generally drop sacs and see how similar they are compared to how I'm going to keep her. I've got no worries about taking care of the sac but I wanted to do a bit of research for curiosity's sake.

    Hi there!!
    My girl dropped in April 5,2013.......if that is any help.
    She had about 535 slings......that grow real slow![compared to some other species]!
    Good luck with the sac!
     
  9. Thank you! I guess I'm not gonna get an answer though, which is okay. That's a bunch of slings. I don't think I'll get that many based on the size of the sac. Then again, Nhandu slings are pretty tiny. Time will tell!
