2nd instar B. albopilosum Nicaragua Slings

Most of them are 2nd instar now, but a little bit of 1st instar left. I know it's hard to tell since they're clutched up, but enjoy the picture.
That's so many little spoders. Out of a yield like this, how many make it to adulthood? (In captivity I mean)
 
@spodermin I'd say almost all of them will make it to adulthood if the owner loves them with proper care and if they molt successfully each time.
 
@Liquifin cool, so when somebody says a certain spider has 1000 slings per eggsac you could count on like 700+ being viable? That's a massive profit to be made for a breeder. I may be in the wrong line of business
 
@spodermin sometimes all or almost all eggs are good....species with huge sacs command very low wholesale value and arent easy sells, so they stick around a while, taking up time and space.

Most, or at least a lot of species have 50-120 being more normal.
 
@cold blood yeah that's very true but regardless, I thought even the lower yield species saw a condlsiderable falloff. This is good to know
