What a beautiful boy!
He ran onto me when I unboxed him and I was shaking. Never handled anything like that before and was not going to but I’m glad I did. He was so calm and gentle.
Reflecting some blue and pink. Blue is the easiest to reflect, but all the other colours like green, gold, red and purple require very specific angles. On the "divine angle" as I like to call it, you can get a perfect rainbow on each leg
She is cold as metal, black as midnight and and sparkles like the stars under light. It's nice to have a "trapdoor" (seriously, how is this NOT a tarantula??) that enjoys handling between enclosure transfers
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!
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
