    Caught some more pics recently while rehousing a few. Hopes ya dig it.

    I'm alternating some pics of H. maculata and S. calceatum to show the difference between the two....they get confused all the time apparently...and if I hafta tell you which are which... :wicked:

    Here's some Pterino. sp. pics...not sure exactly what they are yet. Gonna have to wait for them to molt I think. These definitely look like they were burrowing in some hard terrain wherever they were caught.



    Take care

    Wow. She's pretty mad. If ever a spider needed a tranqualizer dart. . .

    Beautiful spiders! :cool:

    Last pic was the best looking specimen (until the rest molt anyhow....but I still love them all. ;) ) out of several I received recently. Lugardi? Murinus? Something else? Dunno. :wall:

    The pic was taken by OldWorldSpiders before he sent them to me. Since I've had them, this one has sealed itself in and refuses to show so much as a tarsus.

    Take care

    Wow Gary! Excellent shots. I've been trying really really hard not to buy anything for awhile. This post almost pushed me over the edge. :)

    I almost bought a P.Lugardi..but didn't cause I already have and OBT. One of that species is enough. I need to replace my A.genic. I think a C.crawshayi sounds good!!! :clap:

  11. Nice pics, everyone. :clap:



    Gary, I see that S. calceatum and H. maculata are often confused as well. I've found that the undersides of these two species are even more telling than the top.

    H. maculata female
    S. calceatum female

    Some very nice pics :clap:

    I didn't know that there are any real Harpactira spp. available in the trade.
    Is it definitely ID'ed? Is it WC? If so, do you happen to know collecting locality?
    (Und die interessanteste Frage von allen: kann man die Tierchen noch irgendwo bekommen? :drool: )

    Hi,

    to answer this question I recommend the last edition of the ARACHNE where you can find an article on this species.

    And NO it`s not in the trade and it won`t be in the trade within the next 2 years.

    Regards,
    Philipp Samadi

    Hi F.J.A.

    no real Harpacrira are aviable in the hobby. But remark, there are many dealer who offer "H. curvipes", "H. tigirna" or even "H. gigas" - but i never saw a real one under those "offers".

    The problem why there are no imports or no in the hobby, you can read on my website baboonspiders.de.

    Here a picture of a very nice african baboonspider.

    That's why I've asked (mislabelled Pterinochilus...)
    I remember I have talked to you about this issue some time ago (time to have a closer look at your homepage :8o )

    BTW: That's really a NICE spider :eek:

    Man those are some unbelievable specimens folks. The Xeno is incredible as well as the Harpactira cf. guttata pic. I'm blown away with those man....especially knowing I can't have one yet! :(


    Good luck on the bechuanicus breeding, Kumalo. I'm hoping for a sac from this species currently as well.

    Long live the 8 legged tribal warriors of the hobby! :worship:
