That's the reason I don't take pics of my Ts laying their sacs, that or they are just webbed in too much. If you can carefully take off the lid and take pics, go right ahead. If you are really worried about her eating or ruining the sac in anyway during or after the process then just don't take pics. Its the eggs or the pictures...

Hopefully she does it where you can photograph it like near the glass. I have gotten a few shots over the years of different sacs, but only because they laid them right where I could see from the outside.
I have a B. Albopilosum right now that I really wanted to watch but she insisted on sealing herself into the coconut hide. Oh well guess I will see her when she comes out.

unfortunatley she has put so much webbing down you can,t even see through the glass so the only way would be to talk the lid off than i,d also be more worried about the flash going off to i just carefully took the lid off for a peak she hasen,t droped them yet do you guys have any idea how long it might take thanks chris...

Yeah, I wouldn't risk it either. I would have loved to get pics of my Avicularia avicularia laying it's sac, but it was impossible because of all the webbing and I didn't want to disturb her. Anyways, good luck!
