“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.
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 –
I seem to have a lot going on at the moment, we’re moving house again and moving the inverts into a new spider room. This is a big task but I’m feeling better about the new room.. it’s even better than the room I have now – laminate flooring so no mess on the carpet. Space may be an issue as it’s either the same size as the present one or even a little smaller (I have a lot of projects coming up)
This week I had the pleasure of meeting one of my favourite YouTubers.

Absolute gent and I had a blast. Please go check out his channel if you get the chance, but in the meantime here is what happened…
You can also see my video here…
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
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.
