    awesome pics all!! Selenocosmia are great.. it's great to see some species being captive bred, both in Australia and abroad.. there really is not enough out there on this species..

    hey Steve, i love the one of S.Crass and slings... never seen it before.. would that photo be from the batch of crassipes slings that Cassy came from? back in November or so.. is that one of her parents, and could one of them little spiderlings be Cassy heheh?

    also if you have photo's of the other 'parents' of my slings, could you let me know.. i've been meaning to ask you for ages... would love to know what their parents look like.. Selenocosmia unident species 1 and 2, and selenotypus sp 1 and 2.. and even Cassy the crassipes olds.. do you remember which was which type was 1 and which was 2 in case they are ever named and identified?

    hope to hear from ya

    attached a pic of Cassy the Selenocosmia crassipes sling, growing up..

  10. Hi !

    I love Selenocosmia's , They are very slim and there colors are so frickin beautiful. I have 3 Slings of The Selenocosmia Peerboomi I Have not seen any pictures from them there are very small and only 4 weeks old, they are grayish now. Does any one have a S.peerboomi to? or does someone have a picture from an adult S.Peerboomi ?

    Thanks A lot
