Atracid with the highest bite envenomation rate (75%). This girl is getting packed away (in a proper shipping container) for my move down south. She nearly jumped the container onto my hand after this, definitely the last time i get complacent around my hot species
I put off getting Avicularia for so many years and this girl was my first. She's old now, well over a decade, and doesn't have the best appetite anymore. Her moults are coming three years apart and I am always prepared for her to go.
Well, it seems that the pairing of both my females was a bust... again. I paired them in the fall, cooled them over December - February, warmed, fed, and watered them through March, and they certainly don't look gravid. I'm crushed.
