Her most recent molt measured 3'' but still looking small to me but this is the best picture I could get of her without stressing her too much. So sorry about the positioning but it's the best I could get in one take. Still a gorgeous T. nonetheless.
The better look alike of the H. chilensis but instead of the orange-red abdomen mark like the H. chilensis. It has a reddish-brown abdomen mark instead. What a Goddess that is forgotten and underrated.
She (supposed he) molted and it had a spermathecae. The issue is that it was very translucent and rarely there at all which I almost missed it. Glad that it's a she after all. I'm drying the enclosure a bit to deal with the mold as well. Around 3'' now on estimate.
She's so beautiful and so very fresh. She's a very small 3.25''-3.5'' female, so she still has a few more molts until mature. The colors are gorgeous but I have to show you her without flash, because those legs are beautiful.
The first ever Arbanitis sp. trapdoor I caught last year, and the very specimen responsible for getting me into the hobby. Provided this is a short-distance endemic species, she could be one of only a few adults of the species left. Thank goodness for her cooperation with breeding. Freshly molted.
This picture was taken during maintenance. So I was just adding some moisture to the sub and refilling water dish. But this marks 2 males for me, i'm looking for a future loan with my 2 boys in the future. They grow quite fast, 2 months and 2'' of growth already.
