So far in my journey, I have been very successful. 3 out of 4 egg sacs were successful, and all babies inside were looking great. There are around 150 A versicolor babies, and 100 "Usumbara" babies. Here are a few pics that you can see.

Sincerely,

Brandon

Usumbara babies as of 5 days ago. You can see the Webing they have done

What sort of material are you using for the hammock in those shots?

Nice achievements, btw.

Chip,
that is game bag mesh. You can buy it at any outdoor sports stores. It works really well and doesnt get moist like paper towls. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Brandon

Yes, when you hammok babies you take them all out of the egg sac. They seem to be easier to care for that way.

Philth,
The egg sacs all stayed with there mothers for 30 days +. All the hammoked eggs are kept at 80% F, in my closet. So far since I doubled up the fabric on the hammok(not seen in the versicolor pic) non have fallen through. If you get a T blondi sac, I would cosult someone who has experience with them as I havn't.

Sincerely,

Brandon

My versicolor eggs are about 30 days old, I've had one early bloomer go through its first molt and it got its legs about a week ago and is already walking around. A couple more eggs are about to pop, and hopefully within 1-2 weeks all of them will have gotten their legs. I am keeping them at 80 degrees F. and 78 % humidity. What temp are you keeping yours at?
Thanks
Justyn


P.S. Hope you eggs keep doing well. I am currently waiting on a couple greenbottle blue egg sacks, we ahve been seeming to produce these guys in numbers lately.
