Carlo thanks user 'Hendrijs' in the forum message ' Breeding report - Pamphobeteus platyomma'. 30/09/2013

Thank you Stanley. It is not her first egg sack and there is no smell and she has had them for about 3 weeks. The enclosure is not very wet but it has a water bowl in it that is kept full at all times. i will however go and whet some medium tonight if it is not too late and even consider opening the egg sack if the egg sack is old enough....will just have to check the date on the container tonight. ill come back and let you know how it played out.

My B. boehmei female just leaves her egg sack to lay around for long periods so when i get close she starts ambling back towards the egg sack but does not pick it up. Has this happened to any body else? the sack is large and still nice and white.

Carlo replied to the topic 'Use of Isopods in enclosures' in the forum. 26/09/2013

i have also been using Isopods in my enclosures for my larger and adult spiders! they are champions when it comes to cleaning up and they do not hurt your T's when molting. i no longer use them in the smaller t's containers because they also make good food for smaller spiders!! and as the guys have said they are easy to breed yourself. i have a water bowl in all my enclosures with sub and adult spiders in so all i do is when i fill the bowl i just over water the bowl a bit so that it spills and wets the surrounding area to the bowl and that is sufficient for the isopods. I learned from the advice that Jake (formerly know as Cascade!) gave me many years ago!!!

as i have it...all mature specimens have the darker toes, male and female.
The difference is the humps behind the hind legs on the male that the female does not have and the females are fuller bodied than the males! and those are the two sexual dimorphisms.

Only my 2 cents worth!
