    Well a couple other people do this (BoyFromLA, Basin, Tia) and I wanted to do the same. Mostly because I'm driving myself crazy not being able to share what's going on with my T's. So yeah here we go.
    Today I tried feeding my girl Kali (C. darlingi). I didn't really think she'd eat since she refused last week. She's about a month away from a molt according to her molt history but I guess she's had enough because she made it clear that she didn't want anything today. 20180524_134509.jpg 20180524_134713.jpg
    I saw my C. elegans out today. Such luck. Probably won't see it ever again. 20180524_122414.jpg
    Built my shelf yesterday but I couldn't figure out how to connect the middle part so instead of one tall shelf it's 2 different shelves. 20180523_191223.jpg
    Tuesday I got 3 mystery T's from FNT. The Phormingochilus sp. rufus was my favorite. Such a beautiful color and pattern. 20180522_112326.jpg

    This is fun way of keep tracking all tarantulas.

    Had a big feeding on Sunday and I got a few shots of them eating. Most notably my GBB went hunting for the first time since I got it. 20180527_152050.jpg

    M. balfouri pushed up a molt so it probably molted recently. Still no sign of it but when it's hungry, I'm sure I'll see it again. Going to rehouse it soon.
    And here's a small clip of my C. elegans catching a cricket.

    Been in and out for the past week so there's not much to report. I set up a dubia colony so eventually I can get a solid source of feeders that I don't have to buy. While I was at it I wanted to try hornworms. It's not an every day thing just a small treat.
    A. seemanni
    D. pentaloris
    P. metallica
    20180602_131920.jpg Some got pretty fat from the meal as well. I was actually pretty concerned.
    A. geniculata
    P. irminia
    My B. hamorii refused so I suspect he's done eating until his next molt. 20180603_183121.jpg
    My P. sp. rufus decided to be a jerk and build a web nest above the top of the lid. Which means I'm going to have to slide in food and it's going to have to go down to get it. The behaviors are weird. It's definitally arboreal but it spends a lot of time on the ground or on its web. The first thing it did was spend time webbing up the ground. Definitally a cool T. 20180603_211836.jpg 20180603_211823.jpg
    One of the pumpkin patches molted. It's currently 3i (it is visable in this picture). 20180601_183334.jpg

    B. albopilosum molted. 20180613_172527.jpg
    P. irminia made a new burrow, probably ran out of space since It's getting so big.
    N. incei got its first meal since molting. Looking good.
    H. pulchripes molted and I wanted to grab it out the molt for sexing. It wasn't happy. 20180613_094539.jpg 20180613_094609.jpg
