    Well, I figure I might as well as start one of these, for the title alone really.

    My P. subfusca HL sling decided to take down this mealworm in a convenient spot

    That being said, you can't see the worm. Oh well.

    I also got to see my itty bitty C. versicolor sling (who has been rather hidden). I needed to get into it's webbing to remove some leftover food, and it decided that was the time to journey outside the deli cup. Thankfully it meandered back inside.

    As a tiny sling, I couldn’t open my c. Versi’s enclosure to feed without it getting out (they’re super fast and silly) It just recently stopped trying to escape

    Once it’s big enough for the AMAC box i already have set up for ot, I’m sure I won’t be running into that issue anywhere near as much heh

    Filling up water dishes and my P. metallica sling hung out close by. 5B4438C0-1D2F-4CAE-B7FE-0CE4303359C7.jpeg

    Ugh...I’m such a moron. Saw the C. versicolor all curled up and I couldn’t see a molt/the color too well due to the webbing so I assumed it was in a death curl. Tore apart the webbing, lo and behold it’s molting (almost done). Here’s hoping it does ok despite my intrusion :( A566AB51-CC27-427A-9D56-D733D246BCD6.jpeg

    Update: Looks like one leg is injured. Oh well, at least it is alive...phew...

    My H. maculata is out and about! It had been such a pet hole that this sighting is awesome. Got it when it was below an inch and now it’s 2” in about 3 months. Also, looks fairly male to me (not that you could tell from this photo...). 40D57FAD-DADE-476D-B772-515227F0913B.jpeg

    My P. metallica is starting to show the signature blue. 38787BF7-526C-4CBC-ABE1-9F7C3319711E.jpeg

    Feeding day! I could only get the A. chalcodes and the A. geniculata because everyone else scurries into their hide too quick... C507DE9E-786A-42C7-AA6A-43AE6A1874B9.jpeg 4CD7E145-2945-4FA6-9563-DBFC227BBC23.jpeg

    Felt like taking some photos. Seems like it has been a while since I saw my P. regalis out and about: AB86D7F4-A6BF-4D2B-A51D-E0E802804EFF.jpeg

    My P. murinus is always out but hey, here’s another photo anyways: 9228557D-4A58-4F36-9E32-5B2E4E65D70D.jpeg

    And the C. versicolor is doing alright. Took a mealworm the other day and has since made a web: 9B047285-D2EA-46B3-B638-14D3BB786365.jpeg

    Yeah, I went a bit overboard with the ventilation for that cup...

    Well, I have decided to get into Psalmopoeus. First one is a P. cambridgei. Looking into getting a P. irminia next.

    The rehouse was pretty fun. Climbed up the tongs, and then started jumping all over the plastic tubs. Cool to see anyways.

    And I decided to name it Streikende, on account of my lazy love for German, and because of how it took the mealworm I gave it.

    H. mac made an appearance! Every sighting is rather special. 65B8770E-BCCB-4A0D-AAFA-3BDD4F0AA0E7.jpeg

    Decided to rehouse my L. parahybana sling into something a bit bigger.

    P. subfusca LL decided to finally come out! Haven’t seen this thing out and about in a month and he had recently molted so good to see him. Rough estimate is that dls is at 4” which is a decent increase in size. Best photo I could get without it bolting back down into the cork tube. 25BD4056-A8C2-4F23-A253-1F51247FBCC6.jpeg

    Decided to redo my A. geniculata enclosure. Hide had in there wasn’t great. So, put in a better hide and am attempting fake plants with it again. It didn’t seem to really enjoy those that last time but eh we’ll see how this time goes. 003435BF-F780-4665-B4CD-E682E22FB288.jpeg

    Bought some more shelving for what I thought was going to be a bunch more t’s. Sadly, that fell through but I’m keeping it anyways. Here it is next to my spider cabinet.

    In other news, P. cambridgei molted. It put on almost an inch (it’s about, if not, 3” now). H. maculata also molted but doesn’t look any larger. Oh well.

    C. versicolor molted. Hopefully it has regrown it’s missing/damaged limbs.

    P. cambridgei came out enough to snap a decent photo, albeit a ventral one:

    And just found out my P. muticus has made a new wing to it’s tunnel system:

    Going to have to rehouse it fairly soon i think...
