Poecilotheria subfsucsa lowland
Pokie, pokie, pokie, pokie!
AF Phormictopus cancerides
Gorgeous photos as always.
I think I could have a collection of only Poecilotheria and be happy. Well, maybe a Lampropelma or two...
Ornithoctoninae sp. Hati hati
Now for some brachys.
Lampropelma sp. Borneo black, and various stages of their growth.
0.1 Nhandu tripepii
Went from 2.5'' to roughly 4.5-5'' in just a few months.
And now after her last molt.
Beautiful Ts! Keep up the good work.
Man, great collection you got going.
What temps do you keep your room at? My Nhandu and Phormictopus grow like Brachypelma.
Thanks man, I have been keeping the T room between 67-77 range for the last couple months. I always let night temps dip, and only heat up the room during the day.
Thats surprising, which nhandu(s) are you currently raising? The phormics can be a little slower.
Hmm, mine are consistently ~75.
Well, they're not quite slings. Just had two molts in the last year with 1" P cancerides. And a 3" 0.1 tripepi with one in the same time. :/ Just seems you have some faster growers.
Keep feeding regularly and they should catch up. Do you heat your T room at night? I have noticed that the spiders really seem to enjoy the cooler night temps, its when they are most active...I dont necessary believe higher temps always equates to faster growth.
I do. I'll turn it off for a couple months perhaps. It'll let me sleep easier at least lol
I guess it does simulate their natural environment better. Faster growth.. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Xenesthis sp. blue Colombia
Stunning species, heres when I first got her at around 2.5''.
Fresh after her molt, put on lots of size and her colors darkened considerably.
Enjoying some food, shes currently in pre molt as we speak, getting very dark. Ill update when shes molted.
Chilobrachys sp. dyscolus blue, beautiful spiders with blue highlights...like many other species, they are most vibrant just after a molt.
Very feisty spiders with lots of attitude, my large female will strike at the smallest disturbances. Check out her fangs, pretty damn big for a chilo.
Shes a great eater when she wants to be though. Highly recommend this species to anyone with a little more experience, lots of fun to raise and just great tarantulas overall.
A few updates, the spiders have been molting like crazy this week.
A.geniculata 4" female.
My smaller regalis female, granted shes pretty big now...around the 7" range.
And last but not least the Xenesthis sp. blue Colombia, sitting at roughly 4".
Tapinauchenius sp. Union Island AKA "Caribbean Diamond"
