    Just a few pics I would like to share with you! I really like the colouring of this species and the webbing is fantastic! I've had mine for about 2 and a half months now, and it molted twice, with an interval of a month and a few days, it's about 2 1/2" now, and beginning to get adult colours.
    Here is a pre-molt pic:

    Way cool.. Look at that massive webbing..

    My C. cyan is only like 1" or so I cant wait for it to start showing adult colors.

    Thanks for sharing.. Ill see if I can dig up one of my Cyan sling pics later..

    My cyano rarely flicked hairs, but just after its molt I pulled out the exuvium from the container and it started rubbing its back like crazy! The T was still somewhat soft and moist, so it didn't release one hair, but I was amazed at his (or her) intentions...;)

    Here's my GBB after it's last molt. She's quite the hair flicker, I swear her hind legs go a mile a second. Too cute.

    Those GBB's sure are pretty!

    My biggest female just turned over on her back a few minutes ago! It's 2:21 a.m. now so I'll probably get to see the molt when I wake up in the morning.

    Awww...I remember when I GBB was just getting her colors and tonight she just laid her first eggsack!!! I love this species. You will be glad you got those great pics when she is all big and blue and green!!

    When I woke up an hour ago, my GBB had already molted.
    Here are some webcam shots of her. Too bad that the webcam doesn't show the blue color well under fluorescent light...

  17. Hi all...

    A collection of this fine spider would be pretty nifty... Also any pictures that give a scale reference would be most appreciated.

    I've posted one of mine with a scale reference. That mystical gold orb is one English Pound coin, joyous.

    Let me know if I'm out of line with the picture posting.... :}
