One of our greatest joys here at Fear Not Tarantulas is having the privilege of taking part in the entire life cycle of these incredible creatures. We celebrate each egg sac produced whether it is from a Pterinochilus murinus (Orange Baboon Tarantula, OBT) or a Pamphobeteus ultramarinus (Ecuadorian Birdeater).  We will be using this page to update collectors on upcoming egg sacs and breeding projects.
