Has it been known for spiders to have two sacks at the same time

i know spiders sometimes have two one after each other

i got a pokie formosa, and i think i see two egg sacks by her(cant get in too close), it could just be a ball of web, but who knows

cheers Kev: victory:

yes it is very possible for spider to have two or even more eggsacs at one time but I do not think it has been recorded in Theraphosidae before. This is very common in many Araneomorphae though. It would be quite a nice observation if its true.

I repeat the thoughts of BP.
Ive heard its possible.
Ive never heard of anyone doing so outside US.
Ive certainly never heard of it happening at the same time.
Definitely would make an interesting study.

I suppose it is like making two rollies out of one pinch of tobacco.

I thought that the fixed action patterns of spiders (trues admittedly) drove them to complete a task in a set way. So, if a spider is stopped from making a web, it starts again completely rather than carrying on from where it left off.

I guess the female may have been disturbed while rolling (if this is the case) and that one of the sacs would not be complete in some way.

Just a guess though.
