My first attempt at breeding this species. The male was a bit of a bummer. He only did the deed when he was literally pushed to the female. She was down....he was a dud. The end result: 8 post embryos and an eggsac full of numerous unfertilized eggs. Still, for a difficult to breed species and a first attempt. I'm quite pleased. I have another large girl I picked up from a local collector so hopefully she molts soon. The male is still making sperm webs so I'd love another shot before he's gone.






The eggs with legs are darkening now so a 1st instar molt should come soon.

I must be missing something because that looks like a lot more than eight post embryos.
Anyone want to enlighten me? I don't understand.


NEVERMIND. Figured it out

Excellent job. Even one successful sling from that mating is a winner! You got 8!
