    I thought it was a stirmi? Not saying you’re wrong, but apophysis are hundreds of dollars here in the US and it’s not something someone can easily get a pet store unlike stirmi. it’s not uncommon for petstores to lie about the name as well

    A few new additions for me, all spiderlings. Unfortunately my tiny P. cambridgei did not survive the journey today, which is unfortunate because it was one of the ones I was most excited about.

    Of the survivors, we have:

    Eupalaestrus campestratus
    [​IMG]

    Caribena versicolor

    Theraphosa blondi

    With a bonus take-down, or "how I bribed my T. blondi to stay in its enclosure:"

    The fact that you got a T. blondi makes up for the loss. That's the best T in this this order and the Theraphosa of them all in my humble opinion!

    The T. blondi is definitely the one I was most looking forward to, but I kind of wanted to race it against the P. cambridgei to see who would reach 5-6" first. :hilarious:

    I love my Tapinauchenius so was looking forward to stepping foot into the realm of Psalmopoeus. Need more turbocharged arboreal Ts.

    A shame that you lost one of the Ts you were most looking forward too, but on the bright side they're very readily available, which can't be said about the other Ts you got. Hope you get yourself another P. cam soon, sorry for your loss but congrats on your other additions!

    Adult female Chilobrachys fimbriatus arriving today. :happy:

    I'm considering this my first true old world, as the balfouri seems very much like a (slightly skittish) old world so far.

    Large exo terra faunarium is already set up with 12cm of slightly damp sub (mix of vermiculite, potting soil and coco fibre), with a starter hole in the middle and a water dish. Seems simple, any other requirements I've missed for this gal? I have several cardboard sheets with various hole sizes and a few different catch cups to help with the housing, I'm not taking any risks with this one.

    I also rescued a 1.5cm wolf spider from the cat. :) It's legs on one side are damaged, but it's moving around ok. Got it in a fruit fly box with a cork bark slab to hide under. Hopefully it'll moult and fix it's legs at some point... It's very strange, but I still find native spiders creep me out, but not any of the tarantulas. :confused:

    First haul of the year!

    0.0.1 3/4" Ephebopus cyanognathus
    0.0.1 1" Ephebopus rufescens
    0.0.1 1 1/2 - 2" Poecilotheria miranda (looking male based on the quick ventral I got :c )
    0.0.1 1" Pterinochilus sp "Arusha"
    0.0.1 3/4" Pterinochilus murinus (South Kenya)
    0.0.1 3/4" Pterinochilus murinus (Tete, Mozambique)
    0.0.1 3/4" Tapinauchenius cupreus
    0.0.1 3/4" Tapinauchenius violaceus

    And two freebies;

    0.0.1 1" Pelinobius muticus (bringing me to 3 total including my sexed pair - already writing this thing into my will.)

    And one unsexed mystery T - looks like the label either came off or the seller intentionally left it unlabeled. Hm.... :pompous:

    Several of these guys actively fought me coming out of the packing. Pretty sure the only two that went into their enclosure without a fuss were the Tapies. :hilarious:

    Mystery freebie identified - Ceratogyrus marshalli (Mozambique)! Which is wicked, since I'd been eyeballing that when I placed the order but passed it up for another sling. Finally, my very own unicorn!! :hilarious:

    I swear I was just getting some superworms at my local pet shop, but somehow I ended up buying this little cutie:

    20190206_home.jpg
    Ybyrapora diversipes (1")

    And then this one ( I know it's not a T! :p):

    20190206_home.jpg
    Creobroter sp. (1/4")

    I really don't how this happened, but if anyone has some good tips on how to take care of this little cutie, please help me out! (I made a thread)
    I never had a praying mantis before. :nailbiting:

    Unbelievably stunning tarantulas that make their enclosures stunning too.

    Hi basin, just realised that I've watched a lot of your videos over the last few weeks while deciding on getting the CF or not. I really hope mine makes as much web as your girl has.

    I picked up a Phormictopus auratus juvenile 4 month ago. Thats the latest tarantula. My collection nowdays are pretty slim, and i try to keep it that way, but i have always loved the Phormictopus genus and planning to get some more speicies later on!

    Suspect?! These are pretty darn easy to ventrally sex at this size. If you posted a clear photo of the underside of the abdomen to the Epiandrous Fusillae gallery, I bet someone could tell you in a few minutes what you've got.

    What are the circumstances of the purchase that you'd take an 8.5" unsexed spider? It's a very cool species regardless and you'll enjoy the spider a lot.
