    wetwork Arachnosquire

    Just received today. Unboxed her before I had to leave to go to work (night shift). I'll try to get some ventral shots tomorrow when I get home.
    Guy online put up a list of Ts for sale and she was listed as unsexed for $150. I asked him about it and he said he was about 90% sure she's a female.

    A couple small pickups from an impromptu drop in at a little reptile expo a friend was going to;

    0.0.1 Poecilotheria striata
    0.0.1 Pterinochilus murinus (Usambara)
    And a little B. albo sling as a thank you from the vendor! :)

    14 new H. sanguiniceps slings from a breeding loan, little buggers are actually quite big for 2nd instars. One went to a co-worker who wanted a spider and the rest are going to be sold off, though I might keep one or two for myself.

    Pamphobeteus sp. platyomma juvenile female arrived today and she is breath taking. Spooder swoon.

  7. Got my first sling two weeks ago, a g.pulchra...and then I ordered 4 more! They were supposed to ship today but due to the winter storm they're shipping Monday. I'm super excited! I ordered 2 B.Albiceps, a B.Albopilosum, and a G.Pulchripes, all slings! :)

    Was supposed to get:

    2x Phormictopus sp Gold Carapace
    2x Phormictopus auratus
    2x Sericopelma sp. Santa Catalina
    1x Pamphobeteus fortis

    But one of the Santa Catalina and both auratus were DOA. Yea I feel horrible.

    Got a G. acteon as a freebie which was alive thankfully.

    I know stuff happens and I shouldn’t be upset at the seller, but I’m just upset with myself. Three DOA. I unpacked them like I always did, over the 100+ tarantulas I’ve unpacked over the years only one previously was DOA and now 3 in one order?

    And on one of the gold carapace both the back legs are messed up.

    Aw man, that's just rotten!! Sorry things went so bad, any idea what happened? Bad temps, molting in transit? :(
  11. Oh no!!! That's terrible!!! I hope you get refunded for the DOAs. So sorry that happened, I used to buy mantis nymphs in the winter...not anymore. A bunch of faulty heat packs...lots of dead ones. Absolutely awful. I definitely feel your pain. :(

    Well, when I unrolled one of the auratus the abdomen literally fell off when I tried touching it with a pin (knew it was DOA but was complying with the pin through abdomen rule). The other one had a ruptured abdomen. And the Santa Catalina wasn’t moving whatsoever and was in the death curl position. Temps were fine, best this winter on my end and over there wasn’t bad. I’ve had spiders shipped in colder temps.

    Worst part yet I was FaceTiming my gf and my younger cousin when unboxing and trying to get them both into the hobby. Needless to say I’ll have my work cut out for me in the future.

    lazarus Arachnosquire

    How big are they? I've ordered a juvie female A. theraphosoides (it was actually labeled as Acanthoscurria ferina but that's no longer a valid species and is synonim of A. theraphosoides) but it will get shipped only when the weather gets a bit warmer.

    Got my first gbb ever. B verdezi, 2 phormictopus Auratus and 2 phormictopus sp south hispaniola. All slings. Never owned a gbb in 10 yearsish of owning t's. Figured I would just get a sling to see how it goes

    Wow, after 4 months of being very good and not getting ANY new spiders, in the last 4 days I've bought or ordered 5 new tarantulas bringing my total up to 58 (60 if you include my wife's chalcodes and Avic avic "metallica morph"). So I ordered an Aphonopelma mooreae sling from Fear Not Tarantulas (taken advantage of their Valentine's Day sale) and yesterday I added a juvenile female Sericopelma rubronitens to the order. They'll be here on Wednesday. From a local pet shop, I bought a 2" Lasiodora parahybana, a 1" Homoeomma sp. Blue, and a 1" Lasiodora klugi. For those keeping count, that means that I now have 12 Lasiodora including 7 Lasiodora klugi.
