This has been amazing to watch through her perfectly made window. After she laid them, she flipped over and gathered her eggs on top of her and went into a death curl. Links last act was very motherly.
Any one know how long it takes Solifugae eggs to hatch by chance.
I had some years ago that hatched pretty fast, maybe a month or two but they were motionless so I thought they were dead. I remember some speculation that they might stay in that dormant hatched state underground until the next spring comes along. So if they hatch and they don't move, I'd just hang in there until Spring and see what happens. You have good window so you could tell if they are dead when mold or some obvious other visible thing happens.
@Drea Yeah they all hatched but they weren't moving at all. That was almost 30 years ago. I thought they were all dead but when I think back on it, they were probably all alive and maybe they needed to go through one more molt to be mobile, kind of of like tarantula spiderlings when they hatch in the egg sack. They need to go through one more molt to be mobile. So if you see them hatch and not moving, I'd just give it a lot more time and see if they molt one more time.
