This Violacepes does'nt really care about her water dish.
6" plus 2 year Old Violacepes "OUT of HER SHELL"
I seriously have to try my best not to look at other T’s because I am running out of room on my wish list.
That is her temperament like?
Very Shy right now. Singapore Blues Have a burrow and a Tree or cork bark.
Unless I sneak up during the wee hrs from 12:00 AM till 300:AM I won't
see them. Most owners see them during rehousing. I waited almost 2 years
to take that photo. If the crickets you put in don't disappear in a day or 2
take them out & don't feed them until they have molted. Cheers Pennywise!
Late at night hoping for a snack and some Holy water and........
"Yikes I fell like a Deer in the headlights!!!"
The photo above is pre molt these are post molt didn't take them till an hour ago. She, (I Hope) finished Molting last night around Midnight. Theraphosa Stirmi age about 2 years. Cheers PW!
Mr Thirsty has become Mokey (Fraggle Rock Derivative). Since He is a She
2 yrs old 6 1/2" After recent molt.
A new arrival avic , avic. Why did I wait so long to get one of these? This
one is a female.
Another new arrival Peruvian Dwarf Cyriocosmus Sellatus mature female.
I really always wanted one of these! Skeleton - Ephobus Murinus.
Last night i made a check on the spider room and Voila! The Brazilian red and white
which you all know also as Nandhu Chromatus was on a mat & on his back molting
he appears to be male & since I named him Mr Stripes it turned out to be appropriate.
I have a few photos of the "Event", you can check the out if you wish and maybe
comment if my sexing of him is correct. Thank You! Pennywise.
I was browsing the main page and when I saw "Pennywise's Photo Thread", I was like "OMG IS THIS Pennywise the dancing clown?!"
I used to like Stephen King Movies but I don't follow his movies or books any
more. I took the clown photo down many years ago because it "creeped out"
some members. I got into Tarantulas in 2004 but in 2015 I was hospitalized
by a strange attack in 2015 and my wife was having problems taking care of
my spiders and I agreed to give them away to a local zoo keeper. By that time
I only had a few left. Almost 8 months later, I came home but in 4 months I was
taken to the hospital after a relapse and diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis a
neuromuscular disease. 4 months and an Artificial Trachea later, I came home
this time to stay. I am in remission now an not on any major medications. I
love Ts and still keep them. I am working on a breeding project and we'll see
how that works out. Thanks for asking about PW, that's my history.
More NEW photos. This time Glamour shots of One of my Singapore Blues Finally taking them with flash inside the enclosure. Enjoy!
Same group as Funnel Webs this is a Curtain Web. I suspect the Venom on this one might be more Toxic than most T's. A looker though at least by my warped standards Ha! Latin name Harmonicon Oiapoquea.
Weird, I didn't notice the missing left rear leg because there is a line or a splinter from the twig there that is where the leg would be.
This Singapore Blue ran out of water even though I filled it up 3 hours ago. She got more water.
New developments today 3 of my "babies" had their first live kill of a small cricket first there are a few of my Heterothele Gabonensis. Then there's the tiny Brisbane Huntsman tackling a cricket larger than him/herself and last a kind of behind the blurry web photo of a Caribena Versicolor I placed in the tube web at the top of the Taco Bell Cup . Ha!
Singapore blue in it's natural habitat? You shine your flashlight on it as it peeks among the trees
and bushes. That's the kind of shot you see in movies when you really don't have even one
second for another look. The film rolls on and it's rarely that you are certain what you really
saw. That's Hollywood, just as fake as my staged photo. Still looks good though.... doesn't it?
I am going to try to do a video on this one for youtube it's going to take a while. He was
easy to unwrap and house. He's in a plastic kitchen canister with a 50/50 mix of contractor's
clay and coco fiber wet down. Seems to be OK right now but not eating. I had some WC
arachnids take 2 weeks or more to eat, mostly not because they are pre molt but because
they are not used to captivity. Cyclocosma Ricketti by the way or Hourglass Trapdoor Spider
