    :biggrin: today ive scratched 2 off the ol' wishlist... got my A. versi sling and the A. diversipes ive been wanting badly. i always laughed at people who talk like they LOVE ts, and even though im a poeci guy these guys REALLY do make an impression. the versi is fast and jumps like a mad man but the diversipes is really chill (surprisingly) ... i love how it walks. i got them from Tonys spiders and IMO i got them both SHIPPED for a steal of a deal. im a bargain shopper and finally came across a deal i couldn't refuse. tony told me that in his opinion they are both female and i take his word for it as he bred these guys and seems VERY knowledgeable. he also says the versi is 6i (cant tell the size for sure but about size of a quarter or larger) and the diversipes is 4i and a bit larger (and leggier) than the versi. i will post some pics tonight... i have a fairly good idea of how to raise these guys but any tips, tricks , and suggestions would be highly appreciated ... as i prefer to deal with EXPERIENCED avic owners. Avicularia MAY become my new fav genus. Poecis are beautiful but so are avics, PLUS they have alot of personality

    Congrats on the new additions. Avics are a blast.

    The only thing I can think of telling you, and Im not sure if this is an arboreal thing, because Ive only got Avic arboreals, I noticed them both losing their grip on the container, and falling often. Upon closer inspection they were just laying security lines. That is all:)

    Awesome man. Glad you FINALLY got them! First off, be careful to not let that diversipes get lost in that jungle. Haha. As far as keeping Avics, i keep them exactly as i do my Pokies. Slings are kept with descent ventilation, and misting once every few days. I mist down the side of the vials/delis to let some water build up on a side of the substrate, then i give the sides of the vials/delis/webbing a few squirts. Other than that i havent had a single problem from them. I keep my adult Avics mostly dry with a water dish. At every feeding i dump a small amount of water into the substrate near a non poopy spot, and mist a little. Have fun.

    Awesome, Steve! Yours are somewhat bigger than mine, though! Congrats on those new additions however and I hope, they'll grow up fine.

    Cheers,

  10. Very nice additions. They are little cuties, for sure! I have several different species of Avics but don't have any diversipes, they sure are beautiful.

  18. Very nice looking slings :)

    I also have an A versi sling, they're rather active and web quite a bit as well.

    As Skar said, you'll love them :drool:
