    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.
    5/24/18:
    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.

    It looks like you keep tarantulas and stuff.

    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
    P. rufus with its meal. 20180527_082336.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
    20180603_182846.jpg
    D. pentaloris
    20180602_132218.jpg
    P. metallica
    20180602_131920.jpg Some got pretty fat from the meal as well. I was actually pretty concerned.
    A. geniculata
    20180604_084826.jpg
    P. irminia
    20180604_084820.jpg
    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.
    20180610_215610.jpg
    N. incei got its first meal since molting. Looking good.
    20180612_174005.jpg
    H. pulchripes molted and I wanted to grab it out the molt for sexing. It wasn't happy. 20180613_094539.jpg 20180613_094609.jpg

    So a lot has happened. Got new slings yesterday
    2 C. mashalli's (one was a freebie).
    20180621_133309_001.jpg 20180621_133912.jpg
    And I got this H. lunula (huntsman, not tarantula so I won't update about it here).
    20180621_135405.jpg
    Then today I did a big feeding/matinence run. Lots of premolt so there wasn't much to feed but keeping their water topped off. Here are some of the pics.
    H. pulchripes.
    20180622_223833.jpg
    A. geniculata molted.
    20180622_225349.jpg
    G. pulchra's been premolt since I got it.

    Not a lot has happened, just a few molts.
    C. versicolor.
    20180625_171625.jpg
    B. hamorri (surprisingly it happened before my C. darlingi and she was premolt before him).
    20180628_230242.jpg
    And finally my P. sp. rufus. I really wanted to sex it (or try to) but there's really no way I'm getting in there. 20180704_142402.jpg

    Soooo many molts. Woke up today to find 3 new molts.
    P. metallica. I'm excited to sex the molt, last molt looked female but I ended up ripping it before I could really say.
    20180706_081735.jpg
    20180706_081844.jpg
    P. irminia, I would love to sex this one, and possible even see how big it's gotten but it's still hiding. Both the irminia and metallica will probably need new enclosures the next molt or two. I better start preparing for some adult T's :(
    20180706_081632.jpg
    Lastly, little tiny P. cambridgei. The molt is barely visable on the side.
    20180706_082130.jpg
    And my C. versicolor looks like it's ready for some more eats. 20180706_081534.jpg

    (Rewritting this because I accidentally deleted it before posting)
    I got a P. murinus sling. It was so small it didn't even show any of its color. Its molted since and eats well. 20180730_194548.jpg
    H. pulchripes molted. 20180803_212810.jpg 20180801_120419.jpg
    And A. geniculata did as well
    20180801_115359.jpg A few of the other smaller slings have also molted including M. balfouri and N. incei.

    A. seemanni is no longer on hunger strike. Still mad all the time.

    C. darlingi just molted. Has yet to throw out molt but since I bought her sexed and was given her previous molt I'm not worried about getting it.

    Bonus shot of my P. Metallica:

    P. met molted. Early may I add, hes too big for his enclosure now but the little guy couldn't even wait 2 more days for his nice new one to come in. I know hes going to be a stud though.
    20180822_102534.jpg
    He looks smaller in this picture but he stretches the whole length of the enclosure. He put so much size on this molt. 20180822_105121.jpg
    OBT molted looking good. 20180821_205720.jpg P. irminia also molted as well as P. metallica #2. It's the boys club over here. Gunna have a bunch of eligible bachelors.

    Rehoused my P. metallica this is probably the last time I'll see him.
    20180824_130309.jpg
    20180824_130511.jpg
    Since I rehomed him, some others got upgraded.
    Fed this big boy. He does really eat much so I never really get picture of him eating. 20180825_190021.jpg
    G. pulchra, molted yesterday. Everything went well. 20180828_095953.jpg 20180828_125131.jpg
    Lastly I got 5 more slings.
    3 H. maculata who all were calmly rehoused. 20180829_100159.jpg
    A beautiful S. calceatum
    20180829_103139.jpg
    And a trouble maker E. murinus who gave me a run for my money. Little one ran around like crazy jumping around. It's crazy beautiful but this is the best shot I'm getting for now. I don't plan on opening this up until it gets settled.

    Feeding day for a bunch of T's.
    Disappointed was out and ready for his meal. Then gave me the threat posture until I dropped the worm on his log so he could get it himself. 20180902_175700.jpg
    P. irminia is looking huge. But he was soooooo hungry so I gave him a small worm. 20180902_182428.jpg
    This one (E. murinus) that I've named Trouble got some food today. It decided to bolt around again today. Definitely need to pick up a better enclosure for it. Higher walls. Took this picture a couple days ago.
    20180830_093120.jpg
    H. Mac #2 molted already. 20180901_091255.jpg

    Just a short molting update (new arrivals on Wednesday)
    Couple of molts, N. incei and P. subfusca both molted about a week ago and I got a molt pushed up from my M. balfouri. I saw it today and it looked like it was prowling (aka sitting with its legs out its burrow) so its possible it's been a while since the molt.
    C. cyaneopubescens molted, hadn't eaten for a long while. I feel like it only ate 1-2 times this molt. Not a big appetite on this one.
    20180910_113456.jpg
    And finally my A. gen is right on time with another molt. Caught it laying down before the molt and I'm looking forward to seeing if I can sex this one. 20180910_114715.jpg
