Lost a Poecilotheria metallica eggsac

To say this species is my kryptonite is an understatement. This old female will no longer be bred with any males and she will live the rest of her days happy on the shelf.

We have a second female, recently bought, to carry on with our attempts to finally get a successful eggsac.

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.

Not another tarantula unboxing video…

So I’ve received a spider today for next year’s breeding projects…

You will need to wait until the end of the video to find out what it is…. its a good one. I promise.

UNBOXING – www.thespidershop.co.uk

This week I received my Christmas pressies from my fiance Claire, a large order from Lee and the gang at The Spider Shop UK.

We had to get them this early as the weather in Wales is going to turn bad over the next two weeks…. and you can’t exactly wrap tarantulas to put under the tree.

I made the most and stretched the one box into three videos for the channel –

Poecilotheria rufilata (Red Slate Ornamental) #FINDDAVE – davestock 2018

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.
