OK so before someone tells me to do this, yes I used the search! :D

Does anyone know about the gestation period for P lugardi? Or something similar? My girl is pretty fat and I'm assuming she'll pop any day now. Ha.
I saw her at al pet store, and she was already pregnant, so I bought her; one cause she's beautiful, and two, cause I wanted babies!
Anyone know?

Or she could be a fatty due to over-feeding. :p

Unless she was knowingly bred to another, or was wild caught with a chance of being gravid...you don't know till she lays a sac.

As for gestation time, I've no clue. Maybe there are environmental triggers that stimulate them to lay to think about as well. Some species need a cooling period, some need a flooded tank and cooling period, or any other combination to induce them to lay.

Are there no posts on here concerning P. lugardi breedings and the methods they used to produce a sac?
