I only got 13 live babies out of that one hatching, which is sad and pathetic. I’m clearly going to have to go on an Egg Sac Hunt this weekend to get more.

I describe this feeble output on Patreon, with photos of the unproductive wreck of an egg sac. I’ve also put a picture of one of the healthy offspring on Instagram. And, oh yeah, on Discord. Why aren’t you on our Discord server? It’s free!

    Well, 13 is five better than octo-mom’s measly 8. Does that make you triskaideka-dad? And if you count legs you’re up by 88.

    I assume the coven of spiders will get started by consuming the corpses of their dead siblings? That is totally what I would do.

    Thirteen? Well, that’s more than the two baby spiders I found in my bathroom sink. Me, being the complete and total wuss that I am, I managed to get them out of the sink and into a safer location.

    I’m not going to drown some poor baby spider! They eat bugs that I don’t like and they’re freaking cute!
