    That's absolutely stunning! Good luck for the stirmi + muticus sacks: not easy to breed these ones...! Keep us updated!

    I really love to see these babies crawling everywhere. So cute. And you are a good photographer too!

    I like that you tackle big game. You're not breeding OBTs. You're after new, difficult or unique species.

    Breeding GBB now. Well, will be breeding three females now, lol.
    Waiting on my Pamphobeteus ultramarinus females to mature. Each has two more molts until they are ready. That will be exciting.

    Great job! Not to count the spiderlings before they've hatched, but congratulations!
