How long was the incubation time on the eggs? I supposedly have one of the giants on eggs right now.

1 month for eggs to hatch
Interesting. People tell me that the gaints have a fast development rate for the eggs. If mine hasn’t eaten them it’ll be 6-7 weeks since they were laid

You’re looking at 2-3 months in total until they’re on their own

Is that the dead mom in the last picture? Does this species die after incubation?
Nope, those species is the one where the offspring eat the mother. I heard it's a necessity for that particular species since it's a natural process.

Wow, that is fascinating. What do the pedelings gain from eating the mom? Maybe helps them with their exoskeleton growth?

I can't say to be honest. While I do know the bare basics of pedes, my experience and knowledge on pedes are very vague and not too experienced compared to most other people on this specific thread.
