    Spider breeding

    I have read conflicting information on breeding spider to spider. Some people have said you don't get any good eggs. Is this true? I was thinking of putting my banana/spider male to a spider female but want to make sure it's worth the work and I will have s good clutch.

    No super forms

    I get that super forms will not come of the pairing I am
    suggesting, but will the eggs that don't contain spider/spider gene fair well?

    Also

    What would the averages say about the % of eggs that would contain bad genes? Specifically the spider/spider gene that would die off.

    Re: Spider breeding

    25% chance of hitting the double spider so 25%chance per egg of failure

    Thanks

    Two sites I was checking gave me differnt odds. One said 33 and the other said 25. How come the calculators don't say anything about issues like this one? Not sure if I will pair them or put my butter male in with her

    It would be 25% chance of egg failure due to the way odds work and because those eggs will be super spiders. The spiders you do hatch will just be normal spiders. Calculators do not account for this because people didn't believe that the super spider existed or what other reason they had.

    25% = The percentage of super spiders out of all eggs.
    33% = The percentage of super spiders among the spider babies. That figure assumes that super spiders live and that super spiders look like spiders.

    Think of the babies from a spider x spider mating as a pie that is divided into quarters. One quarter of the pie are the normals, one quarter is the super spiders, and the other two quarters are regular spiders. One quarter (25%) of the whole pie (all the eggs) is the super spiders.

    We can tell the difference between normals and spiders. So remove the normal babies (25% of the pie). Assume that super spiders live and that we cannot tell the difference between spider and super spider. That leaves 3 quarters of the pie as spiders of some sort. One quarter (super spiders) out of 3 quarters (all spiders) equals 33% of all the spiders are super spiders.

    Clear as mud?

    As far as I know, the spiders and normals from a spider x spider mating are just as healthy as the spiders and normals from a spider x normal mating. That goes for a banana spider x spider mating, too.

    Banana spider x spider produces
    normals
    banana
    spiders
    banana spiders

    Butter x spider produces
    normals
    butters
    spiders
    butter spiders

    Choose which mating produces the preferred set of babies.

    Thanks.

    One of the calculators was basically telling me 25% and another telling me 33%, now I see how they got different numbers. I was assuming it was the 25%

    Super spider

    Now I may pair the spider x spider/banana. I know the odds are probably like 1 in a trillion, but let's just say this weird looking spider pops out, survives, and is proved to be a super. What would the value on an animal like that even be. Seems to me it would be more of getting your name as the first to successfully produce one that really any money due to the fact that spiders really are a low $ animal. Do u think this is correct thinking?
