I've been keeping T's for 4 years now and my husband has been for over 20 and this was our first breeding attempt and a first sac for our Pulchripes "Eddie". She was my first T and through her (and here) i met my husband so she's a special lady.

Now we have a 40 day wait if all goes to plan but in my mind its been a success just to get this far.

Thanks for looking :D

Well sac was pulled today as eddie was starting to look very thin and lethargic, we had offered her a couple of crickets and she had nailed them and we were a bit paranoid that if she was that hungry she could eat the sac (it being her first aswell). We think its looking good but more experienced eyes would be welcome.

Thank you i'm just really hoping they will start to develop as i was a little afraid they were a bit dry when i opened the sac but would love any input (i had done a lot of research as was planning on breeding last year but we had to postpone it, but it all seems to go out the window when your faced with it head on) there's a first time for everything and i have already learned ALOT from this experience.

Heh ..sorry but wishing you the best of luck is unfortunately all I can do as I possess no experiance what so ever with breeding. :P But I'm sure you'll manage somehow :) And there are lots of pph round to ask here so..

Keep ur spirit high and Good luck getting them cuties sprouting legs :D

Btw.. I'd love to follow the process so if it's not too much of a hassle you think you could post lil about your experiances and future developements? :)

Yeah any developments i will post as they happen, although i have been searching everywhere on the net again and i'm a little paranoid that they should be a bit further on but i will just have to wait and see. I'm feeling sorry for mum though as she gas only eaten 1 cricket and it appears she is stiil looking for her babies, if her abdomen wasn't so small i wish i could of left it with her.

Not really no.but I've just lost a p.regalis sack at 21 days and a p.cambridgei sack at 26 days.so I would hate to lose another one.

I've got a cambridgei sack on the go laid on the 9th april. i got very paranoid but i do think a lot of the ones i lost could've been prevented if they were still with mum. if your worried i'd feed her if her response is good give her one every other day and will reduce the chances of her eating the sack. Has she got it on view for picture taking.
Just out of curiosity when did you mate her

Martin Lees

Last Mated her on November 9 th 2011. She has dragged sack in her hide and webbed herself in.so don't want to disturb her really.

Thats ok was just being nosey :) I had to wait 7months 7 days for my girl to drop. let us know when you decide to pull followed with pictures. When i pulled iwas easily another week before any became eggs with legs but they are so slow.
