Too bad there won’t be any second one.
Never say never
A couple of days late update. It actually happened on 12/09/2018, Sunday.
Grammostola pulchra molted! It keeps growing, and growing, and it keeps getting darker, and darker.
In the morning I traded a few of my juvie tarantulas with @JoeRossi, and here are my new additions from that trades.
0.0.1 Brachypelma annitha
0.0.1 Brachypelma auratum
0.0.1 Xenesthis sp tenebris
0.0.1 Pamphobeteus sp. paisa
0.0.1 Lampropelma nigerrimum
I am very excited for getting tarantulas that I have never had before, and I am looking forward to see them growing in sizes.
Chilobrachys Sp. Electric Blue just molted. Previous molt was on 10/06/2018, so it’s been about good a month and a half of pre molting I would say.
Out of four healthy Nicaraguan Brachypelma albopilosum slings I received on December 14, 2018 from @cold blood, one molted just right now, and it’s just so darn cute!
Aphonopelma mooreae finally decided to molt. I can’t tell much of growth though, but I am still happy.
First feeding of my recently molted Chilobrachys Sp. Electric Blue. I normally give about two weeks to make sure, but in this case, it was only for eight days. It seemed pretty much ready, so I just went ahead and fed it.
Can’t wait until mine gets bigger.
Another Brachypelma albopilosum from @cold blood molted. So adorable lookinh tarantula.
Sometime today or yesterday, Lampropelma nigerrimum molted, and it threw away it’s old skin out of the burrow. Awww, so cute.
At last, Brachypelma klaasi is definitely in mood for molt after five months of being so stubborn.
So is Acanthoscurria geniculata. Sleigh bells ring, are you listening. Slings molting, are you watching.
One of Cyriocosmus elegans molted, and it is still so tiny. At least, now I can see a little heart shape.
New year, new day, new enclosure. Chilobrachys fimbriatus is growing fast, and growing larger. Therefore I did rehouse it to much larger enclosure so it can web, roam around as much as it wants to.
• Previous enclosure
• Current enclosure
• Here she is (I believe)
For Caribena versicolor it was defintely time to move on to larger enclosure as well. So I did rehouse it too.
• Previous enclosure
• Current enclosure
• There he or she is
It feels really awesome when you rehouse your tarantulas, and they settle exact spots where you initially wanted them to be.
Today, I was at Reptile Super Expo, and had so much fun.
I got myself lots of cork barks, and some mealworms, and mixed sizes of Blatta lateralis roaches, and most importantly, two more tarantula slings from @JoeRossi, Brachypelma albiceps, and Xenethis immanis.
I was treying so hard looking around for another members from AB, but failed. Next time for sure!
I came home, then I fed my tarantulas.
Here is the feeding clip of my Chilobrachys Sp. Electric Blue.
I demand more P. sp. ‘paisa’
Here I give you Pamphobeteus sp. paisa! Which currently buried itself.
After several weeks of pre molting, my first tarantula, Brachypelma hamorii molted finally. Once it flipped, it took a while to start molting, so I paid extra attention, and stayed through the whole process, which took about seven and a half hours.
Flipped 06:03 PM 01/05
Stayed as is till 11:10 PM 01/05
Legs started twitching 11:12 PM 01/05
Carapace popped 11:18 PM 01/05
Both fangs out 11:36 PM 01/05
All eight legs freed 12:10 AM 01/06
Legs exercising began 12:15 AM 01/06
Flipped back 01:23 AM 01/06
My beautiful Thrixopelma ockerti just finished molting, and it’s so lovely.
Avicularia perpurea molted after weeks of pre molting. It surely deserves a rehousing once it’s hardened. Oh yes it does.
Total of four slings arrived today. Three Brachypelma schroederi I ordered, and one Brachypelma vagans that came as a freebie, which I didn’t expected at all.
What concerned me was that, Brachypelma vagans’ two front legs were slightly bented. Hopefully in the next a molt or two, they will be recovered.
