Last week the Sericopelma rubronitens abandon her egg sac. I took the sac and put it in an incubator. So far the eggs look good. A few look like they will go to eggs with legs any time now. we shall see.
The P. cambridgei ate her sac the day I was going to pull it. If only I had pulled it a few days early like I usually do.
L. klugi is still holding her sac . no problems so far. The sac is almost the size of a tennis ball.
P. nigricolor is still holding her sac as well. so far so good.
P. platyomma should go to 2nd in star any time now.
M. velvetosoma should go to 2nd instar in the next 3 weeks or so...............
Breeding currently in progress:
P. sp. "south Ecuador
And king baboon.( What ever the hell they are calling it today)
I think thats all of them....lol

My female Megaphobema robustum has webbed herself in her hole. It look like she is getting ready to make an egg sac.
Looks like A. jurenicola, P.irminia,P.cambridgei, and N.vulpinus may all make sacs. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
The M. velvetosoma are starting to to get dark and should go to 1st instar in the next week.
The P. sp. "platyomma" are 1st instar and walking all over the place. Nice big slings!
The B. albopilosum should start to molt to 2nd instar in the next couple days. Curly hairs for all my friends. lol that sound weird if your not a bug person. lol.
That all the news for now....................................

Today I paired Lasiodora difficilis again. Man, that female is mean. She always charges the males,and chase them off. She has already eaten 2 males. I got the male out safe and sound. He made a sperm web yesterday. I will wait another week and try again.
Next up.. Pamphobeteus nigricolor........
The female was still eating when i put the male in with her. The male did some fancy dancing and tapping, and the female put down her food to go meet her man. They started dancing right away. The female is very receptive. They go round and round a copuple of times, the male got 2 good inserts and got away clean.

I just found out that in a couple of weeks I should recieve a mature male Phamphobeteus ultramurinus.
This is a smaller Phampho. Mine is a little skittish but very calm. One of my favorite spiders.
I am very excited to get to try breeding these again.
