She knows it is infertile because there was no little tarantula man to make her fertile. The female molted, and then made an eggsac. I suppose something was telling her it was time to mate...and damnit, man or not, she would have her eggsacks!
kinda like a woman walking around with an empty carriage.
yep, Vayu is correct, she molted in March, and I tried desparately to find a male for her. NOBODY had one, I was totally bummed out, because she was a proven breeder. Unless she snuck out in the middle of the night, caught a jet to Peru, mated, and jetted back to Oregon, those eggs are not fertilized!
Poor thing....I don't think she knows that though. I am going to let her keep it till it goes bad. Then I might replace it with a cotton ball or something
and no, I'm not psychic, but I might just be psycho
