It varies wildly depending on the species. It's not unheard of for B. albopilosum sacs to be over 1000 eggs, but many arboreals only have around 100 eggs.I was curious, how many spiders are in a T. egg sack? Does it vary depending on the species? I couldn't find anything on Google.
Lasiodora have even larger sacs. So yea, sacs can vary from 50 (or less) to as many as 3k.
Yes, in the wild survival numbers can be very low...in captivity you can expect 90% or better survival...ones that are weak and wouldn't stand a chance in the wild, are just slow growing runts in the hobby that grow into normal adults eventually.Christ. That's a lot. How many of these survive in captivity? I know in the wild most would be eaten or die.
think about it like this:Christ. That's a lot. How many of these survive in captivity? I know in the wild most would be eaten or die.
A much smarter thing to do would be to wholesale large lots of them to dealers.>1000 eggs in a sac? <edit>, if I'm breeding a species and I get that many spiderlings, those damn things can eat each other until it's a manageable number.
Let them eat brethren.
I've heard that Nhandu sacs are also enormous
