    B. auratum, B. klaasi and B. sp Tortuguero arrived today from the UK.
    Sadly they had to refund me for the B. smithi as they had none left in stock.

    Got in three females a few days ago:
    2 (two) A.avicularia's -one sub adult M.1 (2.5") and one sub adult/adult M.6 (A.metallica) (5.5"), both are healthy and one (the M.6) is in pre-molt :)
    1 (one) A.chalcodes -sub adult/adult (4.5"). She's very active and digging away already in her new enclosure for my friend whom I bought her for :)

    Got all three from xenesthis off this site. Todd's a great guy to deal with!

    Unplanned rescue addition today.

    Female 2" B. albopilosum that was no longer wanted by their previous owner and stuffed into a small box with a bit of wet and muddy substrate. People suck :shifty:

    She is settling into her new home very nicely :)

    ooo, forgot to mention, last week I picked up a few new slings:

    0.0.1 Caribena laeta (Unnamed) - finally checked that one off my wishlist
    0.0.1 Psalmopoeus emeraldus (Beryl) - Kinda reminds me of my P. irminia as a sling
    0.0.1 Psalmopoeus ecclesiasticus (Francis) - looks like an arboreal Pamphobeteus as a sling :O

    Brought home a Pterinochilus murinus on Saturday. Haven't met her yet... it's just a really nicely webbed box of dirt.

    M. balfouri and E. cyanognathus spiderlings, found for cheap on Craigslist! The balfouri has been a dream T of mine for so long, I’m over the moon. :)

    Arrived yesterday from Poland:

    - C. Versicolor (small sling)
    - E. Murinus (sling)
    - X. Sp. Blue (big sling)
    - B. Bohemi (juv. female)
    - N. Tripeppi (juv. female)
    - T. Blondi (juv. female)

    Despite the long transport and high temperatures they all seem fine. Although when I ordered I thought about the size being body size not legspan so I had to improvise some smaller enclosures *facepalm*

    Got a Poecilotheria ornata yesterday. She's a decent size, DLS probably like 6" or somewhere around there. She is unbelievably docile and the rehouse was the smoothest one I've ever had. Can't ever get complacent; that's how accidents happen... but I'm seriously still in a state of disbelief over how calm she was. I do think that Poecilotheria in general don't totally deserve their bad reputation, but this girl was moving like a Grammostola rosea... in slow motion.

    I actually had my phone set up recording the rehouse but it messed up and stopped around 30 seconds in, missing all the action, if you could even call it that. It's a bummer because at one point I incredulously asked her, "Are you even a Pokie?!"

    the 2nd B. sp. Tortuguero sadly died a couple of days after arrival.
    as i wanted to eventually be able to breed them i got another 3 and a 4th one for free (who knows if other europeans got some and if the uk will stay in the eu). thanks spidershop :D

    Three new slings today:) Pseudoclamoris gigas, Tapinauchenius violaceous and another Pterinochilus lugardi ( just cause I love them). The little P. gigas (which gave me a bit of a run in unpacking though certainly not the worst I've dealt with) is the only one I could get a pic of. I apologize for the horrible quality of my cheap phone camera.

    I got 4 B. albopilosums. I would rather have gotten a species I don't already own, but they are really tiny and cute so I'm not disappointed.

    Besides tarantulas, I also got a P. regius, a fishing spider, and my first scorpion.

    I got some new slings from Kimora the other day. :)

    1x H. Spinifer scorpling
    2x B. Albo- Nicaraguans
    3x Avic Avic Azuraklaasi

    My Nicaraguans are so tiny! C: And yup, I've labeled them properly to avoid any breeding with my Hondurans. All of the Avics ate already, as did one of my Nicaraguans.

    I'm really excited about the Avics, though. :eek: They're super speedy and hella energetic.

    Three for this past week:
    First pic is a Subadult female A. chalcodes “New River rust rump”, from the fabulous AZTom. This tarantula was an absolute sweetheart while being unboxed. And she’s absolutely stunning!

    Second pic is (upper right corner) a tiny spider butt: the B. vagans sling from FearNot Tarantulas made a quick jet to that hole and ignored me until I put its enclosure away. Then it came out and did a few laps to check out the new digs.

    The third pic is of a very curious Grammastola rosea. This sling didn’t run away, but actually tried to climb out on my hand twice. I believe this is the start of a beautiful friendship! LOL.

    These are numbers 14, 15, and 16 of my collection. I swore I only wanted one when I started this journey, April 16th, 2019.
