Here are a few pics of my Holconia breeding project...
The pictures got out of order for whatever reason :/

They mate VERY readily, these guys were at it for hours and wouldn't stop even with me taking the cork bark out of the enclosure lol.

The little babies in the first pic are sooo cute. I'm not all that familiar with true spiders; does this species carry them on their backs?

Congrats on the slings!

Nope, that's in wolf spiders. With huntsman, the slings are good to go as soon as they emerge from the sac.
