Silly me!! I forgot to add the H pulchripes sling, named Hybris. (Greek goddess of insolence BTW)
My P sp machala and my L klugi just molted this week. Hopefully you like the pics. I'm impressed at the growth rate especially for the pamphobeteus.
Both are excellent choices.
I got 2 even better pics today after cleaning the molting mat and removing the old skin etc.
I also had to remove her ping pong ball because she only played with it 3 it 3 times and it was partially blocking one of the entrances to her hide. She looks to big now to squeeze past it.
Fortunately the cage will accommodate a larger hide if necessary and I can lower the substrate if necessary to create more vertical room. She's not at that point yet.
I haven't seen her stretched out but I'm thinking she gained an inch give or take. The pic with the roller was her size at her last most, not this one.
Note that one for is an inch above the toilet and the other is at the 4 inch Mark which makes her 5 inches.
Here she is today.
There is even just a hint of blue. She's definitely my showcase spider but my pamphobeteus is also looking good and is providing stiff competition. I can't even guess which will end up being larger when they both mature.
This is my new T stirmi, Mini Me, probably male.
The videos are in the new additions section in that post. I'll attempt to look these there with the new picture protocols being tricky and all that.
Here's the entire enclosure and the T inside. It came out pretty good but required some work to get the humidity and temp to hold. They are both rock solid and Mini Me is still in the same place. I guess he decided that was the zone.
Here's some good close ups I got of him by laying my phone on the screen just right and holding a flashlight to the side.
I hope everyone likes these.
Here are some more stirmi pics. Mini me had successfully located his hide and burrow.
Hopefully he'll settle down and be ready for feeding in a week or two.
More of Mini me.
New B sabulosum slings. One of them was visible.
Here she is, just chilling out. She nicely framed herself up just right on the frog moss for this shot.
She's basically my showcase spider, guaranteed to be out competing with Nyx my cat for attention whether she realizes or or not.
I need to update my T stirmi. She since molted and I confirmed her 100% as female.
Thus, mini me is actually a Mindy. I'll refrain from the typical remark one can make about females and hissy fit
Enjoy the video!!
Here are 2 pics of her since her latest molt. Since then, she's turned into a black hole and basically I can feed her unlimited amounts of feeders if I felt like it. Believe it or not, she can eat more then both my L klugi and my Pamphobeteus sp machala do combined!!
She's also quite a bit more reclusive and loves her hide, but still the feet stick out a lot.
