    Hi Guys.

    Need some Advise there has been a Red and white breeding pair on sale close to me..

    The male matures in april and apperantly the female is a proven breeder for 4 years..

    How easy is it to breed this T?

    How are they in general?

    How many off spring do they get?

    Im guessing it would have like most bird eaters the same behavior...

    Im so sorry to bother you guys with this i just want to get as much info as possible from T lovers with experience with this T before i make the purchase

    They have posted the google images from the Nhandu chromatus...So i believe so...its from i very well trusted breeder here so doubt they would lie about it.... the also have L. Parahybana breeding pair and B.albopolisum...since i already have an L.Klugi and L.Stratipes...i dont really want to get the L.parahybana...and i had B.Albo before that sadly passed...im just fascinated by the hopefully N.chromatus so that most definitely would be my pick from the 3

    I havent attempted to breed these but i believe they are quite easy. They are considered semi aggressive/defensivee ,my juvi female is abit on the moody side. Egg sacs can be quite large from breeding reports that ive read.

    Agree with @Johnnyp1987 . they tend to be prolific when hey breed. in he UK there are a few on line shops that give the slings away as freebies they have so many. I have 2 slings (one fromantic JohnnyP) plus another one I got free. I also have an unsexed juvie that moulted a couple of weeks ago. there is a pic in my picture link. The are good looking spiders. Good luck in whatever you decide ☺

    I tried to pair them up this morning....Thought ill join @MassExodus in building a spiderling army.....So i paired them up early this morning since we had an power outage and had nothing better to do...after flick some heres and continues trying to bite me i eventually got him in her enclosure....about 10 min in he walked straight up to her hide and started vibrating....i kept my eye on her and she gave no response....he kept on doing this for another 20 min and she didn't even moved so i decided to take him out

    Wouldn't it be a bit too early to breed with her?

    Promising. If possible, keep their enclosures side-by-side. Wouldn't hurt to feed her.

    Wait until she's had a few meals. Usually about 1 month post molt is perfect. They have like 1000 babies, so brace yourself! Very beautiful species.
