    Looks like my new sling (A. eutylenum) had a busy night - she had covered her cork bark with substrate.

    Pulchra was testing the lid of her kk with her fangs :nailbiting:

    I watched this little one gaze out the evening window and perform his nightly ablutions. :kiss:

    I also rehoused two sweet little B. sabulosum slings, and dug around in my E sp Red’s enclosure looking for a mealworm it turned out she had eaten after all. My bad, neglecting to crush the head. :oops:

  4. Rehoused the 3 P. regalis slings that I picked up earlier today. I decided to separate them instead of continuing their communal setup. Better safe than left with only one fat spood.

    Saw my P. reduncus juvenile hanging out on her cork bark this morning after more than a month in hiding (and a molt). I was a bit worried about her since I rehoused her into her adult enclosure already. It's a bit big for her at the moment but I didn't have an intermediate enclosure available and thought I'd see how it goes. She looked well enough this morning and not overly thin, so all is well, as it seems.

  8. One of my two A. seemanni slings is in pre-molt again, while the other one still hasn't molted. It sure is taking its time. :hilarious:

    Everyone ate! Usually a hit or miss for me because even yesterday the antinous was giving me a bit trouble by redecorating the mealworm all over its enclosure, but it ate this time as well!

    Did some rearranging! Also going to make the styrofoam cooler at the bottom into a sling incubator, I’ll post a thread for it tomorrow.

    Three out of the five slings ate again today, one of the P. antinous did not eat yet again :banghead: and the other took literally all day to eat what I gave it last night! Haha

    Finally, my G. rosea has flipped! :woot: Just came home from work and found her/him like this:

    (S)he is the last T that hasn't moulted in my care yet. Fasted for 6 months. Just hoping all will be well and that I'll finally be able to sex her/him properly. ;)

    Yeah, um, take it from me...don't lose the molt before you can sex it. :banghead: I know, how does that even happen, right? Trust me, it happens!

    I woke up to @Nightstalker47 s MM metallica drumming. A hour before my alarm. I may be just leaving him with my hungry female tonight. :troll:

    I heard a loud drumming against plastic while I was photographing one of my tarantulas. I looked, and it was my juvenile male Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens. I guess he's practicing?

    Made an incubator for my slings and juvies that gets to about 82 F (12 above room temp outside the incubator) and it only runs on 7 watts of energy!

    What a handsome red boy! Yeah, it's really sort of your patriotic duty to find him a lady friend now that these guys aren't going to be pouring out of Chile as adults!

    That is seriously impressive. Especially if you have a bunch of slow growers. Frankly, I'm looking forward to shorter, cooler days. I'm sick to death of having to keep up with all these molts and rehouses!

    I've seen that too! I wonder what that's about? Any theories? Seriously, is he just trying out this new cool thing he figured out how to do?
