    Pre-Molt Blues (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    A genic that can't eat is a sad genic.

    Attempted Murdertank (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    After sitting on top of the roach for over 10 minutes, Genicula wandered off.
  5. Spazmoid (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    Spazmoid (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    There may be a roach beneath him, but apparently he wants to be a vegetarian, because he spent 5 minutes attacking the plastic plant.
  6. On the Hunt (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    On the Hunt (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    Genicula is hunting for a dubia roach, unaware it's beneath him.
  7. Splish Splash (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    Splish Splash (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    I'm not sure if he's drinking or just derping in his water dish.
  8. Protest (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    Protest (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    Guess who didn't want his water dish refilled.

    Just a Sip (Acanthoscurria geniculata)

    He may be a ravenous murdertank, but he drinks with delicate grace.

    Handsome Boy (♂ Acanthoscurria geniculata 3")

    Genicula, my male Acanthoscurria geniculata, grew a lot with this last molt (his legs look twice as wide), and his adult coloring is now complete.
  13. Genicula (Acanthoscurria geniculata, 2.5" Male)

    Genicula (Acanthoscurria geniculata, 2.5" Male)

    Genicula, molted 11 days ago. At 2.5", he was getting too big for his old enclosure, so I upgraded him to a small Exo Terra Breeding Box (8" x 8" x 5.5").
  14. So Many Legs! (Acanthoscurria geniculata)

  15. 2" Male Acanthoscurria geniculata [molt sexing]

    2" Male Acanthoscurria geniculata [molt sexing]

    I believe Genicula (Acanthoscurria geniculata) is a male, as I would expect a female to have prominent spermathacae by now.

    The water dish and hide were cut from the same silicone candy mold from Michaels.

    Acanthoscurria geniculata: Prelude to Adult Coloring (♂ 2"+)

    Genicula, my little Acanthoscurria geniculata, molted 8 days before this picture was taken. (I haven't gotten a good measurement yet, but he is at least 2".) Those adult colors are starting to come in nicely!

    Early Pre-molt Darkening (Male Acanthoscurria geniculata)

    This photo was taken five days before molting. Genicula, my 1.75" Acanthoscurria geniculata sling, had started to turn dark, and he didn't even try to tag the tongs or the water dish when I was doing maintenance. (He last molted 54 days before those photo was taken.)
