Here they are, BIG thank you to Lee at http://www.thespidershop.co.uk for sorting me out with these bad boys. They are also bonkers! Haha checknout the vid now below or on my YouTube channel.
I have been given baby centipedes – Scolopendra subspinipes. They freak me out a little bit BUT they are so cute at this size.
Thank you to Gav at “Valleys Tarantulas” for coming to visit and for the awesome gift. Here is his video of separating the babies from mum
“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.
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.
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.
