No rob, that would be waking up to a bundle of a whole lot of money and bragging rights!

Actually no, that's if they make it to second instar.

Waking up to a sac is no big deal really...that's not the hard part. In fact, the last P. metallica sac Rob got, the female ate.

There is a lot that can happen between now and getting 2i spiderlings, but Rob already knows that.

Good luck with those girls, Rob. I'm sure you have that $900 incubator ready and waiting. ;)

And even after that they do not start eating to 3rd with this sp...I know what you are saying....but it would still be "folgers in my cup" with 2 sacs.....I would still love it!! LOL!! I hope this female does not eat it....actually I will probably not let her have the chance. I will say this.....it is not the EASIEST Sp to get to lay a sac.....but is not the hardest either.:D

It would be awesome if they both dropped healthy sacs for a Christmas gift to you! For all the months/years of tender loving care that you gave them!

Take care Rob!

I want your life ROB :( Me want P. Met SOOOO freakin bad it's not even funny!!! I wanna get it, but I can't help getting other T's instead, then when one pops up for a good price I'm out of my set aside funds... IT IS NOT FAIR!!!

Good luck, make sure you pull it reasonably early so she don't get hungry for T caviar ;)
