    Man, seems like these latros can catch and eat anything! Great shot. Love the pallidus too, especially their dome retreat.
     
  11. Hey widowman10 I have a couple of egg sacks from my southern widow but they haven't been hatching at all. Could they be dead?
     
  12. Widowman10

    They could be, if it's been longer than 2 months. Have they turned dark at all?
     
  13. Yeah there were a light yellowish then turned brown. I dissected one and the eggs were dry and hard

    ok, they will turn dark for 2 reasons- development or decay. i know SC is usually pretty humid, but is the place you kept them really dry or hot?

    it's fairly rare that mactans will drop dud sacs.
     
  15. Was humid but I tried to keep them 75-80
