    This is my first time with N. tripepii though Nhandu seem to be fairly simple. We did N. chromatus (x2) and N. carapoensis within the last year and so far N. tripepii seems very similar as expected.

    All the research I have read seems to say the opposite. Not doubting you at all,but I know a few different people that have failed miserably with these guys.Apparently pairing is not the issue,getting them to actually drop the eggs is.I have sold 5 different mature males,and so far the new owners have had no luck.If you do have success,PLEASE post a DETAILED breeding report,PLEASE.( Not just time frames between pairing and sack production,but temps, flooding,cooling,etc.) We need all the info we can get regarding the breeding of these suckers.

    No worries. Doubting is fine. I haven't produced them yet so I cannot provide much evidence to support my view and doubting brings up questions that we can investigate further. I don't typically post much past the dates just because I don't do anything that special. I don't flood, cool, dry, etc. any species. Just keep them under "optimal" conditions year round and they seem to produce year round.

    I am just really excited to see you working with these,so bear with me.Best of luck with them,I am not into terrestrials but these are just such amazing spiders and so hard to come by that it has really piqued my interest.

    We paired our N. tripepii last week with a good insertion. As you know Brett she was the one that molted prematurely after being so fat and gravid. I wish us both luck! We are going to try to get another insertion just to hedge our bets. If yours and my male both make it, I am up for trading out males if you like? I will PM you some data for a member that was semi successful. I will send it to you too Brett.
