Rehoused it this evening and finally got a good look at it since I picked it up in November. It molted about 6 days ago. Such a beautiful spider already! I tried to get a look at its underbits but sex inconclusive.
Tangled in Webs has this species on their upcoming import list, it will only be the second time they have been in Canada ever. This girl is lonely and would love to have a boyfriend over for dinner one day. Now's your chance!
I am rarely able to get a decent photo of her - she is extremely nervous and runs into her hide the moment that I disturb her enclosure. I was filling her water dish and she started attacking the stream, so I was able to snap a couple of photos of her.
This is about a week post first molt in my care. She's eaten two small crickets and that booty's getting fat! She's at least 1.5 inches dls, but may be over 2", it's hard to tell with these leggy wonders.
I rehoused this little devil and he sure gave me a run for my money. Just like the rest of the genus, and really all dwarf species, they are extremely fast and skittish.
Just 24 hours later, he has made himself a nice tunnel system and had a big meal.
