  1. Spiders and Inverts
    Hey all, I've had a red fang wandering spider for around 6 months and in that time she's moulted at least once, she used to patrol the enclosure at night for food but one night she sealed herself in her hide and that was the last I'd seen for a few weeks until I tried to peek in on her to see...

    Hi Guys, I spotted an FW chillin outside my office door in the back garden. She has now created an egg sac. I'm not over enamoured with having tons of the buggers in and around my studio. Should I move it? Or is it best left alone. Here are some pics: TinyGrab - Simple. Screenshot. Sharing...

    Hey folks, A couple of days ago it was time to pull the egg sac from the P. miranda since she was webbed in for 6 to 7 weeks. I never saw a white ball, so i wasn't sure what to expect. Have to say it was my very first time i had to do something like this. It went great, so here some pictures ...

    Hello, I was surprised to find my P. Regius hugging an egg sac this morning and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on caring for it? How long does an egg sac from this species take to hatch? I'm really surprised as this is my first P. Regius and I've only had it for a month or so :p Also...

    Hi all, I've been keeping a tegenaria for a while now I believe it's a duellica but not entirely sure. However this one has been by itself with no partner and all of a sudden I find two egg sacs in her tank. So my question is what do you do with egg sacks, like how do you care for them? I have...

    Hi Guys! My female vagans was mated on the 18th June, and she produced a sac on the 1st October. My original plan was to leave it with her for about a month and then pull it, to hopefully reveal eggs with legs or 1st instars. But someone just told me that actually it takes 2 or three months to...

    Hi guys, we bred our avic avic a few months back, but yesterday we noticed she'd chucked out her egg sac. It was crispy and black, and when we opened it up there were lots of dried up eggs and tiny dried up babies. Any ideas why this happened? Was the enclosure too dry? I was spraying it every...

    Hi I was wondering if you could tell me how long you would leave a female with her egg sac before removing it to incubate artificially and how long you would leave the egg sac before opening it if youd open it at all? The species in mind is the Chile Beautiful (Euathlus Truculentus). Many thanks...

    I have a b. vagans that has had an eggsac now for around three weeks, after checking it , it has started to look hard and crispy. I'm not sure if it is, as I haven't got close enough to have a proper look, she is still guarding it but doesn't seem to be moving it about anymore. Should I pull...

    So my B. Vagans has had an egg sac now for im guessing around 5/6 days. After reading various threads/ books/ web info, I'm torn between taking out the egg sac or leaving it be til they hatch. I'm definatley swaying towards taking it but my problem is, how many days should i wait beforehand...

    So I woke up this morning to find my B.Vagans blocked into the corner of her tank holding an egg sac!!! I'm so excited, we bred her a few months back, and I was starting to think it had been unsuccessful. Anyway, I have read up on these things but would greatly appreciate any advice from you...

    Hey, Got some questions about egg sacs that i'm hoping someone can answer. If a spiders egg sac goes mouldy and dies, will the mother know? and if she did would she ditch it? Or will it be a case of pulling the sac and finding out then? Also how prone to mould are the eggs and would the mother...

    Any advice for the wolf spiderlings? They should be hatching here in about a week. I know they will climb onto momma's abdomen until there first molt. I am kind of wanting to keep a couple and raise them from spiderlings? Any advice? Tips? Recomendations? etc?

    Kinda worried at the moment. My wolf spider has an egg sac and it's only been at most a week, last night I saw what looked like she was cleaning it. This morning when I went to check on her and the egg sac it looks like the egg sac is almost peeling? Kind of confuzzled?

    Well about 4 days ago I managed to crack the lid on my female obts tank. So until I could get her a new one, I temporarily put her in a cricket tub with water and a bit of tissue to soak up any that spilled. I haven't been well so only managed to get a new tank today. I go to rehouse her and...
