well aside from the few stragglers the eggs look like they are about to pop. the yolks are completely gone in about 85% of the eggs and the little fellas in them are starting to get awfully restless. i think it will be in the next 24 hours or so that they will hatch. just out of curiosity though... is it a sudden "everyone evacuate the premisis" thing or is it more so "lets all sneak out one at a time so mom doesnt notice" thing?

These are really great photos. You must have a great camera. Thanks for sharing and please post more when they start hatching!

Awwww.... Those are excellent macros! What kind of camera are you using? Is she Briarius? Keeping fingers crossed for a successful hatching and rearing!

Joe,
From memory, the small egged guys seem to hatch in a snow flurry or two within about 3 days but the larger egged species have taken roughly a week to finish hatching. However, you have more eggs than anyone has mentioned for a large egged species so who knows.

Is that white face in the lower right just a rock?
