wow good read thanks for sharing.would like to find some of the work this guy mentionshttp://www.atshq.org/articles/ctenizidsRhys.pdf
Here is the article I mentioned. On page 3, second column it talks about babies in the burrow. It says that they can stay there for years!!! The article does not cite references but it sounds like the guy has some idea of what he is talking about.
in the burrow. i think mom bags larger bugs and then drags them down into the bottom of the burrow for her kids to eathow should they be fed prekilled? (should i wiggle it, or drop it next to their burrows, or what?)
so the little spiders are making individual burrows? that is an EXCELLENT sign!about half have started burrowing down, which i am very excited about.
yup. basically you want to keep it moist enough to not get dusty, but not so damp that you can squeeze any water out of it. i suspect these are WAY on the dry end of the keeping spectrum for mygalomorphsis slightly moist < damp?
