    My 4 Brachypelma albopilosum "Nicaragua" slings arrived today :shame:!
    They are in their cricket boxes now, with their paper towel tunnel from the package. Two of them are out of the paper towel tunnel yet, two are still in there in stress curl. I hope they will be fine tomorrow ^^.
    This is the bravest:

    And no, the soil is not wet, it only looks like because of the flashlight :D.

    3" Brachypelma Albopilosom when I picked him up there was a pristine molt in the corner of his box which confirmed he is a he.

    Nice mix, where did you purchase them from? Great selection of arboreal, terrestrial, NW and old.

    Holmes Inverts and Tarantulas, if you search "Corby Inverts and Tarantulas" on FB then that's his group, he does auctions for mystery boxes (everyone votes on what will be in it i.e. slings/arboreals/other inverts/juvies) from time to time on there as well.

    You asked me where I received my A. geniculata replacement from, they're on Facebook as well,
    the tarantula factory, Brooke Power, and her partner. Great sellers, as well. Thanks for the heads up, I'll check them out.

    It's run by a guy called Peter, he's pretty sound, think his wife helps out too.

    Yeah, I've seen "The Tarantula Factory" on FB but didn't know if they were any good so thanks for letting me know.
    I ordered an E. sp. red sling (I actually managed to find one lol) and a V. confusus from Andy at "So Many Legs" so I'll see how that goes.

    Thanks @The Grym Reaper , I'll check them out too, I've checked "Corby inverts and tarantulas" the surprise box is a great idea, better deal all around, can you let the seller know if you want OW, NW, arboreal, terrestrial, or is it a random mix?
     
  14. The Grym Reaper

    The Grym Reaper Arachnoknight Active Member

    Yeah, he asked me if there was anything I didn't want in the box so you can somewhat narrow down what you'll get, I just said I was good with anything other than an LP, B. vagans or a B. albo (hobby).

    My unsexed juvies arrived today as planned. N chromatus and P sazimai. Very pleased, and amazed how well marked the Nhandu is already. 20170711_101032.jpg 20170711_100424.jpg

    That's good to know, I would be happy with any and all the sp. you received, H. mac, never owned, I have OW's, so I think I would manage them with some research, and caution of course, that's a great way to get sp. you wouldn't normally go for.

    Fed all the slings I got yesterday this morning, all doing well except for one of the H. maculata slings which I just found in a death curl next to a half-eaten lat nymph, folks weren't lying when they said these are fragile as slings.

    On a more positive note, my Euathlus sp. red sling and a diddy V. confusus arrived today.

    P. metallica and C. cyaneopubescens slings. My wishlist is complete, other than a blue fang which I'm kinda iffy on, plus some super rares which I'll never be able to justify dropping the cash on anyways.
