Psychadelic; Indian Rainbow; LSD Earth Tiger
  • This is the first breeding and production of Haploclastus devamatha in the USA


    •Female last molted: December 15, 2017

    •Male matured: January 1, 2018

    •Mated: January 11, 2018 and every other day afterwards.
    -One of the quickest dying males I've had: lasted 2 months after maturity. Ate once before creating his first sperm web then that was it... just drinking and mating (sounds like fun actually)

    • After the male deceased, I powerfed the female.
    -Medium to large Blabtica dubia every week.
    -If she refused feeding at the time I crushed the roach head and left the body near the entrance of the burrow. Did this until I found the body still there ;) so she ate ALOT.
    -Temps and Humidity were unfortunately not recorded during her gravid period. (Sorry nitpickers I just wing it.) I will say I kept the substrate moist by overflowing the waterdish

    •Sac was laid: April 15, 2018
    -Lucky she created a window that I could see she laid :)

    •Pulled the eggsack: May 14, 2018
    -Had to do it a day earlier than I normally do because of a hectic schedule.
    -Counted 162 EWL

    •EWL began to molt into 1st instar: June 3, 2018
    -unfortunately there were 4 that ended up with molting complications and didn't survive.

    •1st instar slings began to molt to 2nd instar: June 30, 2018.
    -Will soon seperate into their own individual cups with substrate.
