@Nightstalker47 I know where he was collected from, I know the owner of the property and I'm organising a trip there ASAP since I've had him a while
@lostbrane both. I have never seen any online evidence of anybody owning them, and almost no data is available on specific population areas. I only managed to find a single picture on the QLD Gov website. Not only their photograph but also species description matches perfectly. They are called Bearded Wishbone spiders because of the white hairs running along the inside of the pedipalps and inner segment of legs 1 and 2.
@Nightstalker47 first up though I'm gonna look for a female. What's unique about this fellow is he's more like a NW tarantula then a Trapdoor/wishbone, he eats like a boss, readily burrows, hisses when disturbs and most importantly hates his waterdish. Fingers crossed he lives as long as a male T as well, but if worse comes to worse I'll definitely be releasing him
