Looks like I'm going to have to setup a photo bucket account to be able to upload pictures.I'll get them up as soon as I can.My guesstimation is that she has atleast 18.4 of them are on the side of the deli cup.Will she get them off or do I need to try and get them onto her?

I wouldn't advise doing anything that may stress her out especially since this is her first brood and could be your only chance at a future breeding colony. Sometimes the babies find their way back on to the mother and sometimes they don't, I'd just let her do her thing.

I went ahead and tried to put them back on her.One of them climbed right on,but the other 3 kind of just clung to each other.She didn't even get defensive at all.I don't know if it is her first brood.She was an adult when I purchased her.

I tried to get pictures of her with her brood.Everytime I uncovered her.She would run like crazy.So I decided to leave her alone.I'll get pictures of them when I catch her out.All of them are on her back and belly.I have another one,but I think she had babies recently before I got her.

LOL,I know in the last picture.My Andro tank showed up good.All my enclosures are Glass.I just put her in a critter keeper to seperate her from the other one.I don't take many pictures.It shows with poor quality.

:) These girls are skittish and even more when they have young on their backs, so it is difficult to make good shots of them.

I was wandering how long it took.From the time they were born until they molted to 2i.I figured it would take 4 to 5 days,but it's almost been 7.If I can I'll try and get pics after they molt.
