Poecilotheria striata AF2.


Successful


Female molted 1/2/2012
Mated. Paired her twice thought April 2012. Male co-habited for a week .
Post mating care. Enclosure was kept at around 75'f for the next 4months,then the temperatures were put up to around 80'f for the next month or so when the substrate was wetted once a week.
On 18/11/2012 I noticed she had layed an eggsack.(after 7 months)
On 17/12/2012 I pulled the eggsack and noticed N2,s
These then went in a home made incubator for the next 4weeks
Total spiderlings = 73
