The first SUCCESSFULLY hatching eggsack from my trapdoors

2 more eggsacks layed and today one of them finally opened to reveal a hundred of these adorable little blobs.
Arbanitis sp.
I think the issue with the first sac was underfeeding. She kept webbing the lid to the container so I only got to give her 2 crickets between mating and laying. These other sacs are looking good, except I just discovered a third that looks pretty small
 
@RezonantVoid Congrats on the new family members. So cool to see there are some of us who love trap doors and are successful at breeding them. Bravo!
I wonder if the female makes as many sacs a possible to ensure the best survival rate for her offspring. Might be why the third sac is smaller. Spiders of all kind never cease to amaze me.
 
@BCspiderman7 oh, I paired 6 females and they have 1 each. But I wouldn't put it past them to lay multiple, especially when they are willing to pair with multiple males before laying
