    I live in your world. I have a rosea that I'm beginning to think just doesn't like dubia roaches. I actually went out and got her some crickets. We'll see how it goes! Honestly, I know the drill, but this is getting on my last damn nerve.

    Fed all, but the platyomma and the Brachypelma (they’re all too fat), and the ‘cascada’ literally was on its back wrestling with a pretty small mealworm in comparison (who’s head was crushed in the first place so idk why it put on that show). Also the ‘flammifera’ decided to give the crushed meal worm a threat posture which was adorable

    Rehoused my P subfusca LL sling into its first enclosure, after receiving it yesterday. Spidersworld EU packaging was great too.

    No photos of the little guy? Lol

    Made five enclosures for some new arrivals coming in Tuesday, anybody want to guess what the species is (it’s just one species)?

    I’ll try and get a photo when I get home, but it’s only 2cm at the moment.

    I guess the species is.... Chilobrachys fimbriatus.

    They grow fast. My sling/juve (on the cusp) is one of my favourite Ts.

    Glad to hear, I’ve wanted this species for a while. My next T will be one of the suggestions from a thread I started asking for suggestions. The problem is narrowing it down to one (or two, or three) haha. I’d also really like to get a Chilobrachys sp. electric blue.

    Nope! It’s in the Phormictopus genus tho as @Greasylake guessed it correctly

    Finally found my D. diamentinensis juvie! The little fella has been missing for a week. It had webbed up a small dish in a pile of clutter. Honestly was getting worried it was forever lost and I'd find a little husk years later, so it's a relief.

    Rehoused my B. albopilosum Nicaragua sling that molted recently into a 16 oz deli cup.

    On a very unrelated note: haven't seen you around the boards lately @Tia B

    Came home to see Leela (A avic) sprawled out comfortably on her log at last. She was a glass climber, but she has this look of 'where has this been all my life?'
