  3. Female #1 Avicularia sp. Kwitara
    Female #2 Avicularia sp. Metallica

    Kwitara and both metallica live near each other. That's how I got my kwitara.

    I prefer easily discernible Avics :D Got a versicolor that just refuses to go adult :D , and a tiny purpurea sling.


    Great pics overall by the way, some show me how my eight legged maniacs will look like as adults, and some make me wish I had more space :D

    HAhaa. sadly no! That's all the ones I'm unsure about. Either tonight or sometime soon I'll have some pictures of my Avicularia sp ecuadors and sp columbias up though. That sp. Columbia is the slowest growing spider I've ever had. Got it a year ago almost at 1/4", has molted about 5 times, and is now maybe at 1".... >:/

    Sounds great. I really do love Avics. Right now I own:

    I know I need more. Once I've cleared up a lil space...
     
  11. Austin, I'll be looking forward to your pictures.

    I'm excited, Avicularia is the best genus and nice Avics!

  13. Austin when did you successfully breed P muticus?
     
  14. Austin S.

    Austin S. Arachnoprince Old Timer

    Think it was around 6 or 7 years ago maybe? Its in the breeding report section.
     
  15. Oh okay. Congrats. Do you know off hand how many species you've successfully bred?
     
  16. Austin S.

    Austin S. Arachnoprince Old Timer

    Man, been in the hobby for close to 17 years, been breeding a good 12. I have the list somewhere at my house, but its around 20 different species. But have bred probably close to 50 species, with around 30 of that being unsuccessful. Its tough. :/ working on GBB, stirmi, holothele gold, poecilotheria metallica, Avicularia sp Peru purple these past few months. GBBs and stirmi are ridiculously fat, but nothing yet. Although one GBB has made a literal nest. She scaveged her whole take for the softest loose substrate(i do mix's), and brought it all back to one area and has literally made a bed out of it all. Its elevated off the ground by a good 1.5"-2". Looks weird.
     
  17. Holy crap. That's a very long time lol. Congrats and most hobbyist don't understand how hard it is to produce a good sac. You're working on some amazing tarantula's. Do you know the secret to hit on P. Metallica? Sounds promising about your GBB. I hope she lays you a nice big sac! I'm working on breeding GBB right now. I have six girls and one really sick female. I'm actually in the market to buy more.

    In the past, I was told heat and humidity. They are tapping non stop towards eachother, but then they stop for like an hour and I end up taking him out. I should be getting some good info from a good friend whos a very experienced breeder, so I'm sure I'll try his approach.
     
  20. That's not the correct information about breeding and getting P. Metallica to drop a sac. How many girl's do you have? And have they've successfully bred yet? I've always use to get gravid P. Mets, but never anything else until recently. She was recently webbed in about a month. And i think the hide was too small, but I just rehous ed her. And now she's webbing herself in again.
