    L. parahybana eggs (and some with legs)

    The sac has already been pulled and the heat source was quite far off the enclosure the mother was in, but maybe still too close... She was always in a cork bark retreat with the sac.

    L. parahybana eggs (and some with legs)

    There is a heat source on the side of the tank and the temps and humidity are being monitored.

    L. parahybana eggs (and some with legs)

    Very small update. The eggs are still doing fine. The two eggs with legs have molted out, while the other eggs are still just eggs. Wondering if anything is going to come of it if these two are already this far along. Might something have gone wrong after all? Perhaps the male his sperm wasn't...

    TSS acrylic enclosures.

    I have both and even some cheap plastic boxes. The lighter weight is a definite plus for me. I also really wanted tanks with a lid at the top. Much easier maintenance for me. They are still sturdy, however cheap the materials are to build them.

    TSS acrylic enclosures.

    They are great. There's square ones and round ones all of which use magnets to kind of "lock" the top onto the enclosure. I use the tall ones either for arboreal species or for diggers.

    Did I get the wrong T??

    I agree with Oursapoil and think that this is a great opportunity to look out for and buy an actual hamorii.

    Underfeed vs overfeed

    Thanks for the post! I only buy feeders once per month and then feed them during that one week. I have a dubia collection at my disposal for emergency feedings and keep some meal worms around (as those live long). Haven't had any issues. I see my pet holes more frequently as they sit at the...

    Is my T dying?

    This looks like the molting pose. Are you sure he/she already molted? The legs don't seem to be curling inwards, which is good. Monitor the situation closely and I would advise against touching or moving it (since it really does look like it will molt).

    Also, incubator is courtesy of Arachno Clown. Thanks for the informative tutorial! PS: is there any way to edit a post?

    L. parahybana eggs (and some with legs)

    Thanks! Pulled the second sac today. It was a very short, but fierce battle with the mom during which he used fangs to hold on to the sac. Some of the eggs were damaged (but lots remained!). Here's the end result with the eggs with legs on the right side of the image. Image quality isn't up to...

    L. parahybana eggs (and some with legs)

    As of today I have removed all unhatched eggs. I am certain that, if you look at what stage the spiderlings are at, those wouldn't hatch anymore. I believe I am now awaiting the next stage at which point they will start feeding. Some 1,000 sling pots are on the way to be delivered so I can...

    Awesome setup you have there!

    L. parahybana eggs (and some with legs)

    I don't actually have a separate tarantula room, it's where my desk is and where I spend most of my time. It's not feasible to heat this room to 82-85 degrees (for myself and for my electricity bill). I do remember using the heating pad last time around (10 years) and then having 500+ slings...
