Guys, could this be an egg sac?? This T is a WC specimen and had been in captivity for around 4 months and yesterday night when I was about to feed her a cricket, I saw her holding this sac using her fangs and pedipalps. I had never mated it and it had never molted in captivity. Anyone knows about the gestation period for a Chilobrachys sp. Penang? Should I still continue to feed it crickets? Would the crickets attack the egg sac like how they attack a molting T? If I don't feed the mother, could the mother just eat the eggs? Next, should I remove the sac from the mother to incubate it? If yes, how should I do it? Should I just set the incubator up and break the sac's membrane and lay the eggs out or just leave the whole sac in the incubator? And lastly, how can I determine if the eggs are fertile? Sorry for the long passage and I hope I can get answers from you guys ASAP, thanks!
