    Very excited today to get an M . Robustum , and few weeks ago I got a female A. Geniclata . Very different for me as I’m a great collector of the smaller or dawrf Ts . It’s easy to get away with seeking in a new tiny T , but with these two I pretended they where two I’d already had that needed upgrading to a bigger set up

    Traded my MM "pumpkin patch" back to the breeder which I got him from as a tiny sling. Picked up a C. versicolor and a P. Cambridgei in return.

    If you want to see it as an adult, you could also start to plan your golden wedding anniversary already. :cool::D

    But great choices altogether! :)

    Got a package with a female and my first couple of slings in today:

    Female G.pulchripes

    Now on to the slings:


    H.gigas (got this one as an unexpected freebie, so had to read up quickly on behaviour/husbandry before rehousing.)

    And the one I´m most excited about (please be female!):

    Harpactira pulchripes

    I´m super happy right now. Finally got an A.geniculata (ordered one about a month ago that was doa unfortunately), all the others arrived healthy as well and I basically got my dream-T with the H.pulchripes. Also pretty excited about the freebie H.gigas! Rehousings went extremely smooth. The only little bit of "resistance" came from the G.pulchripes lady, that didn´t hesitate to kick some hair at me :hilarious:. But after giving her some time to cool off and rehousing another sling in the meantime, she was cooperating like a charm as well :happy:. Pictures aren´t that great, but I was focused more on getting them safely into their new homes.

    After years of convincing myself that I wasn't interested in keeping this genus once versicolor were reclassified, I finally couldn't resist any longer when I saw this juvenile female on a dealer's website.

    0.1.0 ~2.5" Avicularia metallica

    In her enclosure - dry substrate with a good sized water dish, a decent amount of cross ventilation and a cork bark slab fixed with several pieces of plastic foliage to use as anchor points for webbing. The cork bark is positioned in a way that there's a small chamber behind it she can outfit into a hide of sorts. :)

    It is indeed. :happy:

    Unfortunately not likely to get any T’s anytime soon. My wife tried to get over her fear a couple of years ago by getting herself some and picked them by looks not temperament.
    So she got herself such great first time T’s like three OBTs and a great horned baboon :D.
    Great for me but kind of put her off T’s for the immediate future haha

    Oh dear what a shame , I wonder what she’d be like with a dawrf T , such as the C Elegans. I’ve found a lot of people that don’t actually like T s will very often be ok with this one as they are colourful, small and cute .
  17. Darren0985

    Darren0985 Arachnopeon Active Member

    She was terrified of T’s before this but as we used to breed and sell reptiles she would freak out just walking past the T vendors. She has gotten past that phase now so I’m sure with time she might be ok. She wanted Scorpions in the house now which is a big step in the right direction.

    I have a spare room unused and full of wood off of the garage with no direct door to the house maybe if I can clear out the wood and relocate the black widows I can set it up as a man cave and get some more and not tell her lmao.

    These are the little cuties I picked up from the expo today:

    0.0.1 Cyriocosmus elegans
    C elegans1.jpg

    0.0.1 Cyriocosmus ritae
    C ritae1.jpg

    0.0.1 Caribena versicolor
    blue fluff ball.jpg
    The little guy started webbing already, it took him/her only 1 1/2 hour to construct this:

    And last on the list is my little Thrixopelma cyaneolum sling, that I already named: Forest Gump! :D Because (s)he was quite the runaway. Took me half an hour and a lot of sweat to convince him/her to finally move into its new home. :wacky:
    Forest Gump1.jpg
    And then (s)he wasn't even willing to pose for a picture. :rolleyes:
