“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.

It’s now been six months after pairing the monster in my collection – “The Burgundy Goliath” or Theraphosa stirmi.
I was expecting something to happen by now or at least some indication that she is gravid and preparing herself for eggsac production ie moving earth around or heavy webbing. So far, nothing. It’s time to take matters into my own hands and start making changes to her environment that may spur her on to drop.
In a very “off the cuff” episode from the YouTube channel, you can find out what I’ll be doing and how I’ll go about it.
