My H. gigas produced an eggsack about a mouth ago. My question is should I leave the egg sack with her till it opens or dig her out and take it ? She has completly sealed her self in her borrow .
Also, my C. huahini has done the same and just produced a sack.
Ideas please?

I find leaving the sac till they are at least first instar better then taking the sac and trying to incubate it myself. I have better luck that way.

Hysterocrates are supposed to be good moms, at least mine wad/is

I did take it out on 3week mark just because, however you could leave it with her full term.

eitherway the easiest way to feed 200+ slings will be with their mom communally. Many have done this successfully with Hysterocrates and I even reunited slings I have separated back with their mom lastnight and they even fed together, no casualties.

goodluck.
