I dedicate this breeding report to my dad....

the Enclosure

The Brood at 2i

Growing up

the young are currently free-roaming 3rd instars, living in a form of social colony. Siblings habitually cooperate to subdue mealworms and larger prey items. I tried to get a good pic of the feeding ball when they gorge on crickets but they kept running from the light. With the mother still being protective, I will probably only consider excavating them at 4i.

For this species providing a secure chamber for the mother is essential... the temperature is probably not as big an issue as the humidity... (I know easy to say for where I am) but I reckon the most essential thing is for the burrow to be nice and moist.... almost to the point where it forms tiny puddle pools... but try not to overdo it... I hope this helps anyone trying to breed these... my own native species from my hometown...

Last but not least a depictive shot of the proud dad!
