    I was considering getting an Acanthoscurria collection, and I think you may have convinced me with these pictures. Off to the classifieds!

    The thread started out as Acanthoscurria fracta for this species. That’s what the hobby named this species as long ago. After posting this thread come to find out that fracta no longer existed and the species should have never been named such as.
    Long story short after researching thoroughly the name Acanthoscurria simoensi belongs to this species.

    oops lol long going thread from 2013!!
    I got acanthoscurria insubtilis and not sure if it was mis labeled or what happened to it . Maybe it matured out I think , real shame I didn’t buy more. My nhando carponensis is doing good tho, part of that order.
    Down to 54 Ts from 80 3-4 years ago , so many males. And some bad molts, reverting back to My T care of 7-8 years ago. Ive never seen Fracta at all or acanthoscurria insubtilis for sale since.

    The last thing I gotta due now is hope to pair my male, female and get some babies. Eventually show off the males emboli as well. Than this thread can come to a close.

    I’m trying real hard for this beautiful leg marking species to make it to the hobby, within two weeks I will try to pair the male with her. Hopefully we see some babies sometime next year.

    I'd probably assume not - if the pairing ended poorly, I doubt we'd have anything left to take pictures of besides a squashed ball of tarantula mush. :eek:

    Well i figured something bad must've happened if he has disembodied emboli...

    Hopefully he passed away due to natural causes and made for a good dissection specimen.

    Hopefully, but unless i am missing something the pairing was supposed to happen less than a month ago. That's why i can't help but think the female decided to be unfriendly...
