M. balfouri---growing up!

    I spotted my little female Monocentropus balfouri the other day for the first time in a while. She finally came out of her burrow after she sealed herself in (premolt) for a few weeks. Here's a few "baby" pics from when I got her, and the last three are from the other day freshly after a molt. She's probably 3" maybe more now. The blue should keep coming in over the next few days...Just thought I'd share!!!

  6. I have a male waiting in the wings for when everyone's girls mature. ;)

    Of course, I'm slowing his growth down so the girls can all mature before he does.

    Great pics!

  7. Gorgeous girl Code. I wish I had one of these. :drool:
  8. Very nice! From cute to beautyful!

    where can I get one?!?!?
  13. I've got a local friend doing the same thing. It would be awesome if there was a sudden explosion of M. balfouri slings, that weren't 300-400 bucks a piece!

    Thanks for the comments everybody!

  14. Drooling...so jealous! She's fantastic!

    She is gorgeous! I would love to get one. Hopefully, the price will come down on the slings soon.

    Very nice female you got there. :clap:
    I don't see the price coming down on these in along time. They don't lay very many eggs per sac.

  19. From what I hear one would be lucky to get a viable sac in the first place...but maybe they will produce better over here :D
