    After the female has laid the egg sac, it's common practice to 'pull' the sac after around 28 days, open it and incubate the eggs yourself in a speciallly made incubator. After this the eggs will go through a few stages, all pictures taken off google images...

    Once they are at spiderling stage, you seperate them and keep them in seperate pots...

    The mother doesn't do anythin for the spiderlings, they're on their own to make it in the big wide world!

    Most of the time spiders/tarantulas will go into the death curl, their legs tucked underneath their body. Tarantulas moult on their backs with their legs in the air and it can look like they are dead.

    Why dont you ask a Mod to put your thread over on SPIDERS AND INVERTS section of this forum, this will be interesting for alot of peeps over there, just a thought, as you may have more replies over there. My bloody dog just passed my leg with his tail and made me jump and knock my mug of tea over the table, :eek:
