Got My First Clutch!!

Got My First Clutch!!

Postby Bundu Boy » Tue Nov 16, 2010 10:57 am

Hi All :smt006

Some of you may remember that I attempted my first pairing this year between a normal female and spider male.

Well they copulated numerous times and I was beginning to think that maybe I was out of luck. Well I was wrong.... This morning when I checked on her and she was rolled round like a bun with a bit of white poking through her coils.

She laid 4 big beautiful eggs for me.
I weighed the eggs in at 414g so that is an average of about 103/4g per egg.

Luckily after her last shed I decided to get my incubator warmed up, so that was ready to get the eggs. I have set the temp of the incubator at around 31C.

I did take some pics but have not had time to transfer them to my pc, I will post them later.

Thanks and thanks...

Yep, I was pretty excited..... I obviously missed the ovulation so I had a big question mark over whether eggs would be laid or not.....

Putridity.... I'm hoping for ALL spiders!!... now that would be nice...... but to be honest with you all, just getting my first clutch is great, next step is to get them all through the incubation period, I'll be a happy man if i get four little balls, if even one is a spider then that will be a bonus.....

Big congrats and well done.

Well now the fun has started. Nicely done.
