My female Sicarius laid another sac last night. Is it normal for them to lay two that quickly?

How often are you feeding her? They can have a pretty quick turnaround if well fed.

Pretty common to see their distant cousin - loxosceles sp drop two sacs in a month, I'm sure its probably fairly normal.

Yeah, that's the same way I was feeding mine and she was dropping sacs a couple times a month.

@pannaking22 she never finished her sac? There are no eggs in it, just an open shell. Has that happened to you? I took the sac shell out. IMG_20160805_144451.jpg IMG_20160805_144444.jpg

Yeah, I've had that happen too. I think it happens if the female gets disturbed while building the sac. One of my females did it a lot but she still managed to make one good sac when I was gone for a weekend.

Thank you. It's so interesting looking at pieces of it under the microscope.
