Hisser birthing/behavior question

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck observing a specific or typical "tale tale" behavior that a gravid hissing female will portray before pushing out her nymphs? I have several pregnant females as well as some that have just given birth and I am obsessively watching and recording them to be able to witness this first hand!! Thanks in advance!

Yes, I have seen/felt this first hand.  It is very interesting.  I believe they only do it for a short time.  From what I've read she's turning her egg case to shift them into position for giving birth (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).  Sorry if you already know that.  I hope you catch your hisser doing this!
