    I received my new slings this morning! I got a Grammostola rosea RCF, a Grammostola pulchripes, a Brachypelma hamorii, a Caribena versicolor, and a Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens. I hope I spelled all those right from memory LOL. They are so cute and tiny! I posted pictures of them in the pictures forum.

    I had a wee bit of a haul today. All slings.

    D. pentaloris
    H. sanguiniceps
    P. cambridgei - ATE
    P. irminia - ATE
    T. sp. union island - ATE
    T. violaceps - ATE
    Y. diversipes - ETA: Threw a cricket and it ate. Now, this little one is only 1/2" and I rehoused it into a 32oz (it's very, very heavily planted) thinking it would be comfortable with the amount of hiding spots. It may have ate, but I don't think it's very comfortable. I'll get a smaller container tomorrow to do a 2nd transfer.

    I transferred the Ts, Y. diversipes, H. sanguiniceps, and P. irminia to different enclosures. They all went smoothly. It wasn't until I went to go feed the sanguniceps a cricket it decided to fly up my arm.. didn't even drop the cricket in, I opened up the enclosure and it just bolted. Good lord.

    Two Cyclocosmia torreya slings (1/4"). Almost bought a L. geometricus juvenile but changed my mind last second.
    I'm due for a new T soon so I may order a either a few slings or maybe a juvie, subadult, or adult Asian OW species.

    B. cabocla sling and E. pachypus juvie (unexpected but pleasant surprise) from reptile show yesterday. Rehoused both yesterday and fed today. cabocla refused; pachypus chased adult cricket around enclosure with lightning speed before finally tagging it in the water dish. Should've filmed it; she's quite the little huntress (assuming female as I've read males are quite scarce in the hobby). #dontbedeceivedbythisowtarantulawithnwcharacteristics

    I added a few more slings over the weekend. All have eaten and are settling in well.

    Avicularia sp Purple (already built a little tube web and has eaten twice)
    Tapinauchenius violaceus (Seems quite shy and takes refuge in a hole in its cork, has eaten twice)
    Holothele sanguiniceps (prefers to stay hidden most of the time, eaten once)
    Hommeoma sp Blue (less shy second day, makes good use of it's vertical cork, has eaten twice)
    Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens (Starting to web, has eaten twice, very impressive even as a sling)

    @basin79 Unsexed sling?! Was it a freebie with the other gorgeous lass?

    No. I just wanted an ornata and couldn't find a sexed female. So thought I might as well buy a sling.

    My collection is small compared to many of you, but I am reaching the saturation point regarding space. Consequently, I have had my eye peeled for something out of the ordinary to be something of the crown jewel of the shelves. That thought, and some recent gifts of cash, culminated in today's arrival of that jewel, a VEEEERY tiny Aphonopelma Moderatum. The attached image is the best I could get given its size, and my equipment (or lack thereof). I actually thought I lost it during un-packaging. Talk about palpitations!

    Stopped in at a local exotic pet shop and picked up a few goodies.

    -Chilobrachys sp. "Black Satan" (at least I assume that's what a spider labeled "Black Satan" would be)
    -African Black Rock scorpling

    Almost bought a Thrigmopoeus insignis sling for $30, but ended up not going for it. One of the employees tried to convince me it peed acid and that's why its common name is the Brown Acid Tarantula.

    Update: Wasn't able to get a look at the Chilobrachys originally because it was hidden in its tunnels. Came out under cover of darkness and I caught him in the act. It is a bigger spide than expected. It's about a 2" juvie. Not bad for $30. When I get back home, I'll revamp its enclosure and give him more cover. The little guy has been forced to be a complete burrower because it was given no anchor points whatsoever.

    About a week ago I got a C. versicolor sling, then a few days ago my M. balfouri female juvie (photos attached). In a couple more days I'm getting a large GBB and a probable adult female A. avic.
