Success with Heterothele villosella.

Raised from spiderlings and approx. 1 year old. A small female and larger male were paired on 3/9/09

I noticed an eggsac on 14/9/09 but do not know the exact date it was made. Near enough six weeks later last night I noticed some movement and opened the lid to find lots of spiderlings.

I am very pleased.

Well done Chris, a great achievement.
I've been looking for a few of these to add to the 1 I already have. Will you be putting any up for sale?

Thanks Phil.

Thanks Peter - I'll be keeping them with mum for another moult or so - while no doubt i'll be a nocturnal statue with pentorch watching communal feeding (they freeze at the slightest disturbance) - i'll let you know when they're ready to go.
