    Breeding of Chilobrachys andersoni

    Thats awesome. I always enjoy watching the progression. Its certainly a lesson in patience!

    What substrate?

    Topsoil for me. $2 per bag and never had an issue. The topsoil holds a surprising amount of moisture. The first time I used it the soil was moist out of the bag. I used it anyways thinking it would dry up quickly. After 2 weeks and almost no progress I dried some and did a rehouse.

    I posted this thought/rant on Facebook a few minutes ago.

    Thats a big no go on store bought meat. I do like my steaks rare though. I’ll absolutely eat fresh killed venison raw occasionally. Its fantastic. Also had some incredible raw Kobe beef once but that's not one of those things I can afford to eat but on a special occasion.

    I think we have a mistake

    I agree, stirmi. Sweet pickup. Definitely needs a bigger setup.

    Crickets Vs. Roaches

    Usually cut up superworms for the slings. Occasionally I’ll give them to adults, but if they don’t take it right away I don’t give them a second chance because I hate losing the superworms in the substrate. Currently I buy a few dozen crickets once a week and feed them all off in a day or two...

    If I flip a tarantula which is lying on its back..?

    OP is in Malta according to the profile. Sometimes we take it for granted that we have easy access to feeders.

    Egg sac or nah

    They do indeed move the sac around and they aren’t typically attached to anything. I’ve seen a couple of mine even take their sac for a stroll.
