    Hello everyone, I am just wondering, when breeding Hottentotta sp., More specifically, H.jayakari is there anything out of the ordinary I am to do in order to make the female give birth. Is it similar to with some species of tarantulas where in order to drop a sac successfully you have to alter its environment? Or do I just leave the heat up high and wait?

    Leave the heat high and make sure she has access to water at all times. Then it's pretty much just the waiting game.

    Thanks, yeah shouldn't be a problem, I keep my apartment at 92 to speed the metabolism of my T's so I'll just move them in a single room and keep that one slightly higher
