One of my G.rosea dropped an egg sac. Tamara and I figured the fancy webbing she'd put down was going to be for a moult, but today we woke up and ta-da we have a sac.

Cheers,
Dave

Okay. So as it stands now, the mother still seems to be attending to her duties. The egg sac, however, is no longer spherical. It has some notable irregularities. Is this something to be concerned about?

Cheers,
Dave

Dave,
I think they get a bit rumpled over time, as long as there are not BIG dimples in it, and it can still roll, I would think it would be ok.
I'd keep a close eye on it though

Holley,

Thanks for the info. I'm definitely watching it closely. She has rolled it again since I last posted.

The whole experience reminds me of the first time I got scorpion babies. I think I checked on them every two minutes. :)

Cheers,
Dave
