    Videos aren't loading for me. Doesn't it just make you see red when you go to a website and all the spinning, whirling, flashing BS advertisements load right away but the actual CONTENT you went there for hangs? I mean, there's 3 animated ads for ATT cellular there but after 5 minutes the videos still aren't loading.

    It's enough to make a man wanna throw his comp at a wall...
     
  7. yep, she's very lucky she didn't get bit by that male pinktoe tarantula... it might have pinched a little:eek:

    It loaded for me, looked like a regular G rosea. I cant imagine they would use any kind of rare species on TV like that.

    Oh and the pic of the one in the vacation story vid looked like a A metallica. Same carapace shape, and I think it had white on the tips of the setae.

    I agree, it looked like they brought a G rosea, but I wasn't sure :)
    I would think they would have to bring a 'slow' specie to the show.

    goodness people, the A azura was the T that julia was talking about. the rosea was the one they brought in. how does anyone get the two confused? they look nothing alike. of course they aren't going to bring in an azura...

    that aside, it might be possible, but it's hard for me to say that that is what species of avic it was. not sure the range on the species either, but there might be a few avics down there...
