Are there specific cues in the shape of the abdomen that point to a bred T being gravid rather than just getting fat from a heavy feeding schedule?
Typically a widening of the abdomen in the middle to back 1/3 is a great indication of them being gravid. Plus she has not really been eating the last 3 weeks. Just getting bigger. And the webbing levels have gone up 200%. I am almost positive she is gravid.
It would be a first try and first success so I hope it works out!
this may sound dumb....but what breed of T is that?:?
Psalmopeous Cambridgei- "Trinidad Chevron"
Ryan, one they get to a certain point when they are gravid, do any of your females stop eating? My P. chordatus, who I'm sure is gravid because of the golf ball sized abdomen she is dragging around behind her, doesn't seem interested in food anymore. She was eating anything that moved. Have you had that happen?
That is one ugly a$$ spider you have there. Nah great pic's, I like the first one.
I vote gravid. My cambridgei just ate a roach the size of a bus and her abdomen is huge but shaped more like a cocktail weenie than a golf ball. ;-0
whoa shes a fatty lolz!
my p.cam female wasnt even that big prior to laying her eggsac.
That is one pretty T! Congrats. Kepp us updated.
Yes, they seem to hit a wall where they refuse to eat anymore. Mine has not eaten in a week or so now.
