PostSubject: Minor spider updates and observations   11/8/2008, 1:28 am

One of my two false-widows (Steatoda grossa) laid her fourth eggsac that I found today.

There was a huge gap between her first and second sacs. Then the third came before I even removed the second from her enclosure. Now that they've hatched out, there's a fourth.

The juvies in sacs numbers two and three are tag-teaming the two pinheads I put in with each.

The one survivor from the first sac plumped up after a pinhead this morning.

My sac-bearing Latrodectus geometricus attacked an old food bolus instead of the cricket I offered her today. scratch

I'm feeding my four virgin L. hesperus today (2.2.0) and I'm going to try mating them over the weekend.

I fed my mated L. geometricus a good-sized cricket today. She plumped up considerably. I hope she starts dropping sacs soon (she's a pale morph, compared to the dark one that's already given me one sac).

Thought I'd share.

Cheers

I looked up the full text of the DWA law . . . the only Theridiids listed are those in genus Latrodecuts, so false-widows are A-OK. Very Happy

It means I might be able to send you some false-widows after they grow a bit, if you're interested.

They're like a lot of spider species that you might find hanging out under furniture; give them something to build a web on and the occasional prey item and you're good to go. Smile

They're in the same family as black widows, so they build similarly messy webs.
