Haha yeah i know. Only if i had paired my B. angustum too. Thanks. Well i am either going to see if my mom will take them at her house, and then keep them moist. Or im going to individually vial them, then keep the vials inthe incubator, and make sure everything stays moist. I can always move them to a cooler part of the room to help the moisture stay longer too. Good luck with yours.
Wow, someone must have sent a Brachypelma memo "it's sac making time". Congratulations. I am in the same boat with some G rosea slings as you; I am going on vacation this Summer and they will probably be 1i if I'm lucky. I can't decide what to do with them. I guess put 'em on moist substrate and hope for the best.

Haha yeah thats true. I have read the vagans have up to 600. The sabulosum im not sure about. But her sac doesnt look as big as i thought it would be. But it could fool me. I hope. Thanks steven.

Haha im trying. Ill be pairing one of my P. scrofa females sometime this weekend. Next week i have a mature male H. maculata coming for my fresh female. Gonna try my old L. difficilis male again, with 2 options, get the heck to it, or be eaten lol. So far the good 1st instars was 94. Four of them made it to first instar but were mangled, and died.

Paraphysa scrofa

Today was the first time i paired the first female after molting. The male was a little hesitant at first, but eventually found her. She was completely unresponsive until he got too close, then she got aggrevated. But he mustered up the emboli and went in for it. Got some nice insertions, then a quick parting. Will be pairing them again soon. Also waiting on the 2nd female to molt.

Forgot to mention that i tried my old mature male L. difficilis with the female again. He wasnt very interested. I think the female knew he was not willing, so she is now eating him.

Brachypelma sabulosum sac pulled 6-2-12

Here is the sac i finally got done with. There is 250 1st instar slings. Seems like its a small sac, thank god. It took 2.5 hours to get all the slings out of the sac and into the incubator. From date the sac was laid til today it was 32 days. Next week i have a B. vagans sac to pull that looks to be atleast double this one.

Nice work... looks like youll be havin more stuff than you know what to do with in NO TIME. sucks about the vagans, but im sure another male is easy enough to find.
i cant get over how clean that tappie sack looks. Its amazing to see how much dirt gets into ts webbing, but a lot of sacks are squeaky clean.

Thanks steven. I already have plenty lol. As soon as my sabulosum molt, and are on their way, that would be great. I actually have a 3.5-4" male vagans for the future! I know what you mean. The sabulosum sac was covered in coco fiber. I wasnt sure it was even a sac at first glance. But the Tappies sac is pretty squeaky. Probably cause its suspended, but im sure she will add some decoration to it lol. Its the size of a nickel if you couldnt tell!
