      Yeah, that spider really screams docilety! Haha Not!
    • RezonantVoid
      @Vanisher unbelievably she actually took the rehouse really well and didn't make a single threat posture. When I first got her, she was a little ball of fury
      Rhino1 and Vanisher like this.

      It is like Pitbulls, every pitbull i see i imagine it to be an agressive beast, but that is not true, its their bad rep! But on the other hand, i am little afraid of dogs, so it is maybe that! One should not judge the dog by its hairs!

      I am not afraid of spiders though, and if a Hadronyche sp or Atrax robustum coming running towards me fangs bared i would not be scared, cos i know how to handle them, but if a pitbull came running towards me! THAT would be a totally diffrent story!

      Where do you source your funnelwebs? I've been looking for one for ages.
    • RezonantVoid
      @Staehilomyces I get em from all over. This one is caught from Mt. Tambourine, Ive had Rhino1 send me 2 unidentified ones from his area, I bought 3 Robustus from gumtree, Ive collected several H.Macquariensis from Coffs Harbour and I got my Cerberea from a seller down south, he has a bunch of different ones but not many for sale (he even has Venenata and I'm damn jealous).

      If you like, I'm going to the place where I got this Valida from on May 5th. They are literally everywhere and I'd happily grab one for you if I can catch one.

      This was also her the day after capture, she's double the size now with a 47mm DLS
    • Staehilomyces
      Yeah, I'd love one!
      And I promise, I won't even think of handling it - pedes are the only highly venomous inverts I have any inclination to handle.

      @Staehilomyces yea definitely wouldn't wanna do that lol. If you want a bit of a reference for husbandry, I wrote a pretty large article on funnelweb care about 2 weeks ago in the true spider forums. These are basically just burrowers that LOVE rocks, they will nearly always chose to make a hole under, between or next to rocks. I don't know why the aren't called rock funnelwebs.
