Still waiting from a order from spiders world they said it was too cold to ship
Relax, I’ve waited a month for an order from them and they all turned up fine.
Had five new additions get delivered today.
And the one I'm probably most excited about B. hamorii
N. coloratovillosus, been wanting another Nhandu for a while just couldn't decide which one. About 3" and I suspect it's a male.
Got this beauty from I.H.S Doncaster today. Always wanted a blondi!
I went with @boina to an expo today. Real fun for sure, loads of tarantula dealers (way more than I expected) and lots of other stuff... like scorpions, snakes, geckos, centipedes, even wandering spiders (unfortunately very badly kept) ... and frogs!
Meet my new friends:
For now, they're called Ernie and Bert!
And I also got a tiny 1/3" B. emilia:
Isn't she cute?
Was at an expo this weekend, only brought two home: a very, very small Lyrognathus giannosposatoi and a Davus Fasciatus (that is almost certainly a D. pentaloris, luckily the price wasn't bad) - I'd throw in some pictures of the spiders but both burried instantly, with the Davus just sealing it self in its hide..
Oh, and picked up a bunch of terrariums.
Can I show them here? I mean, my Davus is IN THERE SOMEWHERE
5 x M. balfouri slings (5i)
Just got my first ever T yesterday, a 1.5-2cm N Chromatus, cant stop adoring it! Got it from an expo for round 10€ aswell as some feeders. Cant wait to get home from school to check on the lil guy/gal, atm its named Minerva as i hope its a female but whatever ill probably end up getting more eventuelly anyways she's very active atm and shes beautiful heres a photo of the little one!
P. Murinus (OBT) for a first. good for you. I have two juveniles right now that are just a blast.
After raise my Stromatopelma calceatum from a sling to an adult, P. Murinus are not so bad. Still fast though.
Small tip. It is better to use scientific names because the common names can be confusing or incorrect. It takes practice and some are really hard to say at first. Using genus and species also helps insure that when you are getting new T’s, you will be getting the ones you want.
Grammostola porteri is sold often as a Rose Hair.
Grammostola Rosea is often sold as a Rose Hair.
They look almost the same but are different. I only share this because I currently have a Grammostola something who was sold as a Rose Hair. I have no idea what she is other then she was a rescue and I love her. Her name is Aragon.
Congratulations on your first T’s. ☺️
