So the Tarantula project is a bust.
4 out of 6 eggs normal, 2 Spiders...
So far 4 are out. 1 Spider, 3 Normals.. ALL MALE.
None of the normals look anything like Mom....
Here are pics of the parents..
I was REALLY hoping for something, but I guess it just isn't meant to be. I was at least hoping for reduced pattern Spiders, but... even that wasn't meant to be..
Here they are so far
And to top it all off, the Spider is the spawn of satan. He tried to bite me within five minutes of my taking him out of the incubator.
Man, oh, man...
I got nice healthy babies, but not what I was expecting..
Next year we will try for something else...
