I paired these species back in April


now sorry for crappy picture quality, I didn't plan to pull sac, but had to
so I used my cell phone to take pictures

Opened sac, post-embryos


I been told they are difficult species to produce and no one produced them in US so far, lets just say my pure luck ;)
this is very exciting! :D

congrats on the sack, thats really great. But, why did you have to pull the sack? were you worried about them getting destroyed?

well, I bred successfully and produced dozens of Poecilotheria.
Many let hatch with mothers and many had to pull if a possibility of saving if something goes wrong
this was the case.
Also possibility of been first successful sac production, I had to interfere, taken no chances


what can I say 't was my butt feeling :D

so you normally let them hatch out with the mother? how do you collect them all that way? I have always pulled the sack once it passed 17-20 days and allowed them to grow seperate from the mother, I didnt know folks left them with the mother,,,
