    Default 2008

    Hi
    Here my good and bad for 2008. I didn’t breed too much this year but still it was enough for me and a couple new species bred for the first time for me also, so I can’t complain.
    Did the usual Psalmopoeus species like most years but gave the reduncus a rest (not that they wanted a rest as it turned out)
    Psalmopoeus cambridgei 1 x good eggsac

    Psalmopoeus irminia 2 x good eggsacs

    Psalmopoeus pulcher 2 x sort off good eggsacs (1 contained only two nymph 2 rest of sac was bad and from the other sac only half of the sac made it through to spiderling for some unknown reason) 1 x eggsac eaten. Spot the two nymphs I saved !

    Psalmopoeus reduncus 3 x phantom eggsacs
    Haplopelma minax 1 x good eggsac

    Cyriopagopus schieodtei 1 x good eggsac
    Stromatopelma calceatum 1 x good eggsac

    Lampropelma violaceopes 1x good eggsac

    Chilobrachys fimbratus 1 x eggsac eaten
    Chilobrachys sp. “andersoni” 2 x phantom eggsacs
    Chilobrachys dyscolus 1 x phantom eggsac
    Orphnaecus sp. “negro’s” 3 x phantom eggsacs
    Avicularia minatrix 1 x eggsac eaten
    Think that was it. I dont expect much for next year as I have nothing mated up yet and have no plans to mate anything either in the near or even distant future for the time being.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Cracking job on the minax sac. Did you use some sort of template to cut the top off or was it freehand?

    Well done Chris, that's a good haul
