Ah, I assumed it was a typo That really is a kiddie size can!
Lopez, I have no clue really as I picked her up from a pet store who had it labelled as a "Thai Tiger". I kept calling her C. paganus until a more experienced hobbyiest told me that the current name is H. "longepidum". Why do you say it's the Vietnam sp? What are the differences? Sorry for the questions. In the learning process.
Haplopelma schmidti housing
And the occupant:
One can never have enough Haplopelma schmidti
Don't try this at home kids!
As you can see, this is a comparatively small specimen
Prepare for some pix to come ;-)
First are these of my lividum - such a beautiful look, such a nasty temper ;-)
No tampering with the colours, but the picture were shot using a halogen spot to bring out the full spectrum colours ;-)
Got me one of these guys by accident, long story. Actually we are not positive that it is albostiatum but pretty sure. I lke it but it just had its ultimate moult about one two months ago. Too bad he won't be with us much longer. Anyone know the expected lifespan of mature males of this species?
And another blue shot ;-)
A black black Haplopelma minax. Large female ;-)
My very largest female of H. schmidti. Also the one with the best tear drop pattern on the abdomen. Can't wait for her to molt, so I can get a good shot of her with her new and vibrant colours ;-)
And another shot of same spider ;-)
Haploplema sp. "longipedum" female
Haplopelma sp. "Vietnam".
Compare with the photo of H. sp. "longipedum".
Both are frequently sold as Cyriopagopus paganus. And Haplopelma sp. "Vietnam" is commonly sold as H. sp. "longipedum". Notice the differences these are two different species.
Here's my dark schmidti ;-)
And another shot of this dark beauty ;-)
I don't think any of you mnd that I include this non Haplopelma in this thread ;-)
Lampropelma violaceopes - juvenile female
Same animal as above - but photographed with full-spectrum light ...
Now you know why it's called violaceopes ;-)
Thought i'd post some pics of my H. Lividum
This locus doesn't know what it's in for.
