    I received three new slings from @cold blood today.

    Augacephalus ezendami

    Avicularia avicularia #1

    Avicularia avicularia #2

    I don't have any crickets right now, so I cut a mealworm in half for my the Avic slings, thinking they wouldn't eat a motionless piece of mealworm, but to my surprise, both were feeding within an hour.

    Although I didn't plan to get new Ts, I had to bring these two home with me:

    - Neoholothele incei gold (1 3/8")
    - B. albopilosum "Nicaragua" (1/2")

    5€ each... how could I not? :D

    At long last.. haven't bought any in almost a year.

    2x Phormingochilus everetti. Supposed to be 3/4", but are an easy 1.5-2". Quite pleased with that.

    4x Lampropelma negerimum. 1/2". Very happy to have a group of these. IMG_20180711_115847741.jpg

    Unfortunately, the 3/4" P regalis was DOA. I'll likely get a replacement with my next order. IMG_20180711_124658425.jpg
    Very strange. As the packing was moist and it was shipped overnight..

    One Brachypelma klassi. Interesting note, tarantula Canada exports these directly from a breeder in Mexico to encourage captive breeding of Brachypelma. Each Brachypelma sling they sell comes with a certificate stating so. IMG_20180711_132813373.jpg

    And of course a freebie Brachypelma albopilosum. This is my fourth. I've never purchased one lol. IMG_20180711_133048879.jpg 1531330471118581594236.jpg

    I just ordered a few slings :woot: P. lugardi, T. violaceus and C. huahini! There will also be a freebie. Not sure what. The best part is that when I told my wife I ordered more tarantulas she was only a 1 on a 1-10 Outrage Scale™️ Talk about my lucky day,eh?

    The other day I found a raft of baby spiders floating in my pool. I thought a wolf spider had fallen in with its babies on its back. Saved about thirty, and decided to keep three. After looking at pics and with some help from here, it looks like I actually saved a bunch of baby Ts! Most likely A. Chalcodes, but could be any of the multiple species here in Tucson.
