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.
Kochiana brunnipes adult female. Not only has she removed all of her urticating hair, but she is out all the time. I'm concerned about her uncharacteristic behaviour. This girl was the most reclusive of all my tarantulas, only being seen a couple of times a year. Now, she's out all the time.
