      I'd pack the whole enclosure. However, you could absolutely incubate yourself fairly easily. Take the sac, put in a small enclosure with high humidity and roll it once a day or so until you are ready to open it up and see what's inside.

      Thanks for the advice guys! I think what I will do is pack the whole enclosure and if she abandons it attempt to incubate it as Beth suggests. I am so excited to have an eggsac but what timing!

      Awesome but YIKES! That sac couldn't be worse timing!

      Personally, I would be worried she would eat the sac and so I would be thinking about incubating it myself.

      As for pairing them, I am so glad you evidently did get a pairing, but I had the same problems with the male sent to me recently.

      He paired boldly with my first female (6.5") and again, but was a huge chicken to my second female who was obviously very interested.

      I tried 3 times to pair them, but all he would do is bolt. One time, he sat in her tank, drummed, then bolted.

      Then I tried a neutral tub to pair them.

      BAM! Within 3 seconds of putting them in there, he was inserting!!

      I got so excited, I wiped the tub down and tried it again with my RCF pair and my NCF pair. All three were the same results! Three good pairings within 30 minutes!

      I think you may be on to something Manly. Next time I attempt a pairing I think I will place the females enclosure into a,large steralite or such so that the male can draw her onto a more neutral territory. Makes me wonder how far the male with lure the female in the wild?

      I worry about her eating the sac too but I also worry about caring for her sac myself so early in the game. I know early on the eggs are very fragile but become stronger as they absorb the liquid in the sac. It's a hard call either way.

      Here is a bad picture of her with the sac. Of course she laid it almost on top of her water dish!

      So I ended up pulling it. I am not sure if it is good because some of the eggs felt clumped. Since I have been kneading and rolling it it has become gently unclumped but am not convinced it is a viable sac. Time will tell I suppose!
