    Unknown Idiommata silverback MM

    So I lost my H.Macquariesis male before breeding him so the seller said he had lots on his property and he'd get me another one. Instead? I get something massively unexpected and awesome that I can still breed!

    Rehoused her today into a larger more appropriate setup and she is loving it
  6. Idiommata Sp Silverback/brushfoot

    Idiommata Sp Silverback/brushfoot

    She has been acting strange lately, like dragging substrate around and removing the lid to her burrow. Might be time for a rehouse. Aus might have relatively bland T's but we sure do our Trapdoors right

    Not to be confused by appearance with G.Pulchra, these aren't even tarantulas. Still absolutely beautiful platinum metallic sheen and is quite alot more clever and aware than any other spider Ive seen apart from Portia spiders

    Just got this absolute beauty yesterday. The 'black panther' of the myglamorph world, this female Silverback Trapdoor grows large enough that many confuse them with tarantulas. The carapace of males is completely covered in shiny chrome/silver hairs. An awesome addition to the collection!
