Poecilotheria striata

AF1 last molted oct 2012
I waited until one of the males in my commune matured,I waited until he did a sperm web and introduced him into the females tank.He was left to co-habit for a few weeks until he was eaten.16/12/12.
The AF was kept at around 70"f for the next few months and fed normally.
Early March 2013 she was put up a shelf and fed a bit more than usual.
End of March she was put up on top shelf,substrata wetted and fed a lot more.
Dropped eggsack 14/4/13
Pulled eggsack 15/5/13 all EWL
These were put in a new type of incubator I'm working on,but I lost around half
Due to lack of airflow I think.
Molted to spiderlings 23/6/13
Total 53
