Gravid wolf spider

This has got to be the fattest one I’ve ever seen. No doubt that she’s going to drop me a few eggsacs within a few weeks time; does anyone know if wolf apiders can do double clutches? I had one female that laid an eggsac, ate it, then proceeded to make another one. Would this eggsac be viable?

      I had a Tasmanicosa Leuckarti drop one eggsac but then instead of carrying it, she dumped it and returned to living as normal. It still hatched. Onces she's made the first sac, see if there's any way you can remove it asap before she munches it and it should be fine

      @mantisfan101 If she mated in the wild, it's almost certainly a viable sac.

      I've not heard of them double-clutching (producing two viable sacs from one pairing).
