      Manly's Breeding Projects...

      So, I have decided to make a master thread for all my breeding projects as I have quite a few going on right now.

      Successful to date:
      G. rosea RCF (opened sac Dec 2013) -- 270 slings
      B. smithi #1 (opened sac July 2014) -- 840 slings!

      Unsucessful to date:
      B. smithi #2 -- molted out this summer before dropping sac
      GBB -- Tiglath died in July a month or two after eating her sac.

      Pending:
      G. rosea NCF -- discovered she has a sac last night!!!
      G. rosea RCF (second attempt from this pair) -- she doesn't look very preggo, but the daddy is coming up on 2 years mature.
      G. pulchripes #1 -- my 6.5" girl is looking VERY fat! Daddy is the miracle T lost in male for 44 days from greenleg.
      G. pulchripes #2 -- Penelope's sister (owned by JoeCanada) is also looking quite fat. Daddy is the miracle T lost in male for 44 days from greenleg.
      P. parvula -- paired three time with male, but she doesn't look preggo.
      B. emilia -- paired once so far with a male from greenleg.
      A. metallica -- paired last night. Borrowed male from pet store in Regina.

      Future dates (fingers crossed):
      A. versicolor -- have two possible dates coming within the next few months.
      G. pulchra -- have a 4.5" pair. I am trying to get her to mature before he does. Likely a few years down the road.
      B. albiceps -- have TWO pairs. First one I am waiting on him to mature (she already is), second one both are about 3.5".

      Will keep this thread updated as things transpire.



      Looking at what I just typed, I am BLOWN AWAY! Didn't think I would go from my first pair last year to this in ONE YEAR!!!

      Update:

      Waiting on sacs from: A. metallica, A. versicolor, B. emilia, G. pulchripes, G. rosea RCF.

      My P. parvula girl passed away a few weeks ago. I think she was another victim of my overheating incident a couple months ago.

      Opened my G. rosea NCF sac last week, and they were all dried up.

      And one of the two G. pulchripes girls in now on her back to molt. She was the smaller girl. The larger girl's abdomen is not twice the size of her carapace. I am afraid she will pop if she doesn't drop this sac soon!

      B. emilia is likewise looking fat, but not eating at the moment.

      I've paired up 3 of my Avic metallica females in the past few weeks, and am impressed by their approach. All the encounters were like consummate lovers, taking their time during the lengthy insertions, seeming to enjoy the experience. The male would wrap his first two pairs of legs around her waist (pedicel). One of the females had a diagonal silk sheet spun as part of her retreat, and both her and the male both laid on their sides on the sheet while they leisurely made love. None of the tension or hurrying I see with some species.

      My male AM is a big boy, probably 6", and the females are almost the same size, only bulkier. Metallica's blue color is really nice after a shed. Between their color, size, temperament, and hardiness, the hobby needs a lot more of these.
