Can I Buy You a Drink?

    We(myself and Mr. Gone) just witnessed our P. cambridgeii finding her water dish in her new enclosure for the first time today. She inhaled 3 B. lateralis roaches earlier and evidently it was thirsty work!

    We especially like how the photo captures the detail of the dimples in the water surface where her legs penetrate the water tension.


    Anyone else have any good pics of their T's drinking?

    cool!! my first time to see a T drink lol
  8. It's not really anything special, a Kodak EasyShare C533. It seems to have a pretty good macro setting and after we figured out the white balance, the pics started turning out wonderfully. i will have to blow it up and post it 2morrow, the detail is awesome.

    That is a fantastic photo.

    EDIT: That would be a perfect photo to represent 'The Watering Hole'

    Great pic!!! These are my favorite shots, strictly because they are hard to come by.

    P metallica, shot is fuzzy cause I did not want to turn on light and miss the shot.

    G rosea

    B albo, getting a drink the HARD way, (got the shot as she came up)

    P cambridgei in heavy pre-molt(she's MUCH bigger now)

    Her sister

    Yes GBB's DO drink

    My fave drinking shot A fasciculata

    Yep I have been lucky to see and capture my fair share of T's at the tap.

    I got them at wal-mart in the garden/houseplant section. They're just the little saucers that go under flowerpots, but they're shaped different: the walls don't slope in from top to bottom, which, in IMO, makes them better water dishes. They were just by themselves with other under-pot saucers, I got all they had and they never ordered more. They also had them in a soft yellow, and a peach-ish red, I think. But I thought those were ugly colors for water dishes in naturalistic enclosures.
  16. They have some awesome clear soap dishes at dollar tree that are...perfect in every way. They even have water within them which weighs them down enough that they can't be tipped over.

    Ive seen both my T's Drinking, Not got a camera to take a decent picture tho :/
  18. These are pretty cute. I agree, the first should be "The Watering Hole" shot. Maybe make it a banner across the top? ;)

    Awesome shots!!!!!

    I have never caught any of mine using the dish, but I have seen most of my slings drink from the side of the enclosure after misting.
