“Tiny” The Worlds Biggest Tarantula Genus (Theraphosa) Making her EGGSAC! by predatororpreyonline
You’ve just watched our Goliath Birdeater Tarantula (Theraphosa stirmi) making her eggsac. It took over 28 hours of recording, speeded up x100 to make the last portion of this video.
It is a youtube first for this species and was totally nerve-wracking.
She was mated on May 1st 2018 so It’s now over 8 months.
I lost a scorpion yesterday, a Heterometrus petersii to be exact. Thank you for all your support, lot’s of people messaged and gave tips on where to try looking. We tried all night to see if he would come out wandering in the spider room – nope!
Decided I would have to dismantle the spider room systematically.

As the title suggests there is a tarantula and invertebrate exhibition this Sunday 16th September in Bedford.
It will be one of the largest shows in the UK (definitely biggest this year)
All the details can be found on the invert shows UK Facebook page or watch the video below
Today’s video is the first to incorporate the use of my new green screen. I’m most definitely still learning, but it is a very cool effect.
Aphonopelma chalcodes, Aphonopelma seemanni and Theraphosa stirmi are showcased in this video. I also point out some problems in their enclosures with mould and spot maintenance.
Western invert show is next week – it’s gonna be a good one.. get yourselves there!
The Bristol invert show is one month away and excitement is building. This is a very well organised exhibition on the outskirts of Bristol, making it only 90mins drive door to door.
I will be heading over early to get some filming done – I’ve been given a traders pass from Lee @ thespidershop and have to make sure I concentrate and don’t get too distracted by the spiders/traders, to begin with.
I will be there all day until close so please come say hello, if you spot me. I’m not as miserable as my face would show.
I will be keeping my eye open for some weird bits and bobs – I fancy some true spiders and some scorpions… maybe even a couple of tailless whips.
