    My 3" P subfusca arrived in the mail today! I have to say, this is my first time ever seeing one of these in person and he's truly..breath taking. There's no way I'll be able to have just one of these because of how awesome this little guy is {D He's much more timid than my P striata and the prettiest T overall, I've ever laid eyes on. I even set his container up with a custom waterdish I made out of a medicine jar cap (got the idea from robc). Most work I've ever put into an enclosure but he's definitely worth it!

    Pics!

    I love these things, they're the vacuum sealed type with a pinch release lid. I got a 5 size set for $12 I believe, the largest is housing my P cambridgei at the moment but no where as fancy looking as the one in the pictures (used the 2nd largest container).

    Totally love the looks of the subfusca "lowland" - together with the metallica (I love blue spiders, sry) in my opinion certainly one of the best looking Poecis.

    I think it's a he because i can see the start of a dark patch between the first set of booklungs. Honestly, I don't mind either one because of how awesome both sexes look {D favorite T of all time!

    If he turned out to be Highland, I wouldn't mind that either :D both subfuscas are so gorgeous, I'd prefer one female of each over 5 P metallicas. ...i could sell the P metallicas to get more subfuscas though haha. He's still pretty small so I'll be waiting for those patterns changes!
