Today I bred B. albopilosum, A. avicularia, and P. murinus, and attempted to breed C. lamanai and am still waiting on my G. rosea to makde an eggsac. If all goes well, and I get 4-5 eggsacs in 2-3 months and then 2-3 months from then I have 4-5 eggsacs worth of baby tarantulas, it should be around early September when I fake my own death and move to the middle of nowhere to escape all those little mouths.


And speaking of tarantula mouths, today I was taking photos of my Ts and got a lovely shot of one of my mature fem. H. gigas flat on its back and angrily clenching a Bic ball point pen in its fangs. I'll get a picture of it up soon on my webpage.

Wow congrats and hopefully you get a lot of successes. I dont think I could handle that many spiderlings all at once. You will have your work cut out for you.

Good luck with the sacks,
Like Jacen said," you'll have your work cut out for you." I'm only feeding 75 G. rosea slings, and it takes almost an hour to do that.
I dont know how Holley does it with hers. I think she has about 700.:?

Ernie...
key word is 'had' :)
It was super time consuming too....don't know what I'd do if I had Adrian's luck!
Currently, I also have bred G rosea, E campestratus, and A versicolor. If they all decide to make eggsacs, I'm in trouble!
I've just got my sling population under control at less then 50 of the little beasts!
