Last night while checking all the critters, I found that my OBT pair that have been cohabbing for about two months now are parents. Not sure how many yet, but I'll get a count some time in the near future. The thing I thought was odd, the male was seen in the burrow three days prior to this picture!:wall: He is still with us, and doing well. :? :D

Congrats! Hope you have tiny air holes in the container so none escape on you.

Way cool! Two months, eh? That's pretty awesome. I had a A avic couple together for a month. When I left a couple of A genics together, she took him fairly quickly. I just wanted to comment how it's awesome these "ferocious" spiders can cohabitate for so long.

No kidding! {D She's not being very cooperative so far. I don't want to stress her too much so I'll take it real slow. I can wait for them to start emerging, and grab 'em one at a time. Eventually, I'll get her out. :wall:

Doesn't that figure that the spider that is called the "Bitey Thing" plays house so well? :rolleyes:{D

If you see them both out, I'd love a pic. ;)

I finally convinced Moody that her kids would be OK in my care. After about 6 hours, I now have 200 slings in 3/4 oz. containers. (I ran out of containers.) It looks like another 25 or so are left to house.

OBT hatch

It looks like I'm gonna have more OBTs. :eek: Seems this pair can't get enough of each other! :rolleyes: As if 227 spiderlings wasn't enough! :wall: (I missed this one (lower right) in the original count. Must've been hiding!)

If I was that sling, I would be running in the opposite direction right now. That's something a child should never have to witness.:barf:{D

I think that's what the child's trying to do! LOL!

Maybe a good place to film a Southwest airlines commercial... "Want to get away?"

Good catch tomM!
