But what about all your other females?
I have a couple of others that were bred last year and that are looking a little bit gravid, still feeding them though cause I'm not quite satisfied of their weight gain. This girls that was my last one that I paired in January after mating she gained a lot of weight. So she's my number one to focus on for now.

Using the type of enclosure that I like my tarantulas to produce a sac in it usually takes anywhere from a day to three days for the female to produce a sac. So depending on what day I place her in shortly after I should see something good happening.

Here's to hoping that we can have more of the true B. albopilosum specimens in the hobby. Ones with actual "albopilosums" (white hairs).

I paired my Nicaraguan curly 2/7/17. By 2/15/17 she was super fat and looking very gravid. 2/26/17 I added fresh moist sub to her enclosure and a larger hid. 3/1/17 she started digging. 3/7/17 she dropped a sac. Woot woot that was fast. Today sac looks great!!!

So exciting!!! :) Jose, are you going to pull her sac? I decided to pull my B. albo "Nicaragua" sac simply because I am so nervous to wrangle a bunch of tiny babies out of her enclosure. I have a huge task on my hands soon. :anxious::embarrassed:
Oh, I cannot wait for both my and your sacs to come to fruition! :kiss:

Here's how big my girl was about a week out from dropping the sac, but she was that size for almost a month. My guess is we can't guess :p

After I bumped the humidity for a week and slightly raised the temperatures she did drop it though.


The market is going to be absolutely flooded. Not only those who got sacs already but I sent my MM to @Thistles as well.
There's going to be thousands hitting circulation all at once.

First thing first I need to see a sac, once if there is a sac I will pull it around 35 days.

My suggestion to you was since it was your first time of one of your tarantula producing a sac is you should leave it with mom. Having that experience is exciting.

Can I buy two spiderlings from you this summer? I want a true B. albopilosum :)

IMG_5046.JPG Update: The female that I transfer to her new temporary enclosure was not ready to drop a sac for me. So I decided to put her back into her regular home where she was still eating. I think now though that she is ready to do something for me, due to the fact that she digged to the bottom of her enclosure seeking for moisture. So today I will re-place her back into a moisture environment before she does what my other female did yesterday. Photo #1 is of the female that I originally expected to drop a sac for me.

Brachypelma albopilosum "Nicaragua" Egg Sac:
Mated: November 18, 2016

So yesterday after coming home from work I noticed that my albopilosum was already in the works of making an egg sac. Unfortunately not the place or condition that I wanted her to produce a sac. The environment was completely dry and also is her regular home where she it's, which I'm never comfortable of any of my spiders to produce a sac in. Don't ask why just know I have my reasons.
Regardless I removed her into the proper environment and let her due what she needed to do. Today just a few minutes ago she finished and hanging on to the sac. Photo #2 & 3 is of the same female that produced a sac yesterday.

oh, those ROCKS sticking to the sac :anxious: i'm sure it's not a problem, but it's just annoying me. it's like when you get grass stuck to your legs at the water park.
