Breeding Report: Poecilotheria striata

This eggsac shows one of the biggest bummers when keeping and breeding tarantulas. Sometimes the female eats the eggsac. Other times you pull the eggsac and open it only to find mostly slugs (infertile eggs), post embryos that failed to thrive, and only a few (or just 1) viable post embryos.
