    Screen shot taken from the video I recorded. Theraphosa sp have huge fangs. They don't possess the venom of an OW but the mechanical bite must be really painful. Frozen/thawed mouse.

    What never gets old is watching her try to find her trapdoor.

    Yep. She's a proper little star. It still gets me how she knows roughly where it is.

    I honestly don't know. Maybe 8cm at a rough guess.

    I'll measure the size of her bottle top water dish so you can get at least an idea.


    The bottle top water dish is 4cm across.

    My collection has reached the point at which my tarantula “species to get” list is truly shortening. However, I’ve been considering one of these for the past couple of months, and this little vid has pretty much pushed me over the edge. One of these, and T. stirmi will pretty much fill the T shelves.

    Aye. I.was hoping she'd use her other fang to kill the cricket quick but she thought otherwise.

    That is one chubby H. pulchripes. Beautiful species, and after seeing your lass I'm a little sad that both my slings turned out male.

    And that M. lambertoni, :eek:

    I can’t decide between my H. maculata and my S. calceatum which is more fun to observe. These are “full package” species, beauty, disposition, webbing, eating, they are tremendously interesting to observe. They are starting to nudge P. murinus out of my top spot as best all around species.

    Thanks to someone on Instagram providing me with the information regarding the differences between a Brachypelma smithi and hamorii she's now been identified. I bought this lass years ago as a juvenile female Brachypelma smithi. Then came the name change so she went to Brachypelma hamorii. Turns out she wasn't a B.smithi in the first place so is now. Aye, crazy. She'll always be my favourite no matter though.
