I just checked on these yesterday and there was no sign of activity. This morning was a different story. Mom was very calm, until I used a syringe to fill the water dish and hydrate the substrate-then she turned into psycho mom and began to imitate a Pterinochilus murinus (OBT). LOL These are so much fun. I know she wouldn't hesitate to tag me if I got too close.
1/2 of this sac belongs to Bluefrogtattoo. Many thanks for the male, Andy!

Yet another species I want! I just haven't gotten any because I worry about their hardiness - are these anything like Avics when it comes to sling mortality?

Way to go Di! Looks like the babies have another molt to go to get their fuzziness.

I really enjoy hearing about tarantula mom's that are ready to defend their babies. Who said spiders aren't good moms?

JenJen you have to take some chances in life otherwise it gets real boring. I'm sure you have the ability to care for the wee little ones. Go for it!

Yeah, I have to say they're a little more difficult than some other arboreals, but the little spidrlings are stunning and the attitude of the juvies and adults make them worth the struggle.

Congrats, Di! Good looking family you have there!

I love a momma with attitude. :D

Can't wait to see those babies when they turn fuzzy.

Thank you Patrick for your confidence in me. :) And thanks for the info Di, I'll be extra careful when I get some babies.

I just remember the day I let Abby have the run of the show on feeding day and I forgot to warn her about the speediness of these little devils.... - no spiders were lost in the process, but they got some mileage outside their vials ;)

Great success, once again. Great pictures, too - it never gets old to see Momma with s'lings around.

One day after their emergence they molted into 2nd instar spiderlings. Still have no idea how many, but they'll be separated this coming weekend and sent off to Chicago.

I'm already glad I joined up here. :) I'm seeing a lot of genera that you don't see very often on the other boards, and I apologize for going off topic a little but I'm also happy I took a look at your site. The breeding facility makes one jealous quite quickly, but the availability list from you and the other breeders gives me happy thoughts that I'll have some good luck finding MMs for a few of our ladies. I'm sure you hear this a lot, but great work!

Mark, "Auntie Diane" is one of the greatest breeders around, and she also has a collection spiders all of us can just drool over....
These photos here just prove it :cool:

Thanks for the kind words. The tarantula room belongs to Anastasia and it is full to bursting with tarantulas. She's the ceter of the little net-bug universe. :lol:

Look at those beautiful babies, I just want to cuddle them but I doubt Momma Spider would like that. Congrats on another sucessful sac, Di!

I wanna go to Chicago!

I was thinking it wouldn't be long before they molted seeing how dark they were. Beautiful species Di and thanks for adding them to the hobby. You finally going to admit that you're getting pretty good at this tarantula breeding thing?

Including these, I have 8 sacs for 2011. I think the fertility dance definitely worked. John Apple asked me for good thoughts for a rare tarantula that he has mated and I told him I'd ask you to do "the dance" but that it took a lot out of you and I wouldn't ask too often. :lol:
I have Ephobopus uatuman, Avicularia azuraklaasi, Cyclosternum sp. Machalla, Tapinauchenius violaceous, and unconfirmed Psalmopoeus irminia sacs all nestled with their mom's. So...the cedit goes to the mama spiders but I'm willing to admit I've assisted their efforts. :D I hope you're ready for a mass invasion of spiderlings, Patrick. And, I am planning a Nebraska trip when Spring rolls around. Tanner would like to have it at his place and I was hoping Sebastian Elowski would be in attendance. I can't wait to get my hands on him.
Diane

8 sacs already. Amazing.

You know I bet Sebastian Elowsky would make an appearance to meet his Auntie Di. I've seen a couple of pics and he's a darn good looking boy, must take after his mom. :razz:

That's great that Tanner offered to host. Just don't let him grill the fish. ;) :lol:

Always room for more babies Di, thank you.

Babies are for eating!

At least that's what more than a few hobbyists have found out, didn't Payton's daughter eat a G. rosea spiderling?!

Yes, babies are for eating. I do agree Diane is nailing down this breeding thing, and had the photography thing too. Maybe she needs to write a book!
