    Yukinoshita's stroll

    Human, as you have just sprayed me with water and dried me with a tissue, you are obligated to allow me to jump onto your hand and warm up. Refusal will not be tolerated

    Yukinoshita getting rehoused due to mold AGAIN, really annoying as i loved her enclosure and burrow to bits

    Yukinoshita's limelight time

    Despite being in heavy premolt, she's still doing the rounds with posing on her cork bark. As the top model in my collection, she views it as her duty to be on display as regularly as possible
  8. Nemesiidae, Stanwellia sp.

    Nemesiidae, Stanwellia sp.

    I've now been able to have a closer look at the orange butted princess while housing her. Her spinnerets, flattened and obscured by the plastic container in the original picture, indicate Nemesiidae rather than Idiopidae (Arbanitis), and so does her eye pattern. Stanwellia sp... at 6cm she's a bigun

    One of the best looking species of Nemesiidae there is

    Namea sp. Freshly molted

    I came home from school pick-up with my younger son. The older boy was able to alert me to Namea sp.'s fresh molt - her first in the three months that she's lived here. She doesn't look her normal brilliant orange, but, she does look like a beautiful ghost through the peekhole.

    Stanwellia sp.

    A beautiful little wishbone.
  12. Calisoga longitarsis

    Calisoga longitarsis

    An actual common name doesnt exist so this spider is now the 'Platinum Trapdoor'. ...mainly because it's easier to say than 'the calistoga long-legged tube-web trapdoor spider'

    24 hour redecoration

    In less than a single day, my Aname sp. Gold has unearthed a rediculous amount of substrate. Her plant is now in peril

    Her and her damn cork bark again

    Yuki (Aname sp. Gold) was outside as usual, wanting food. The moment she got her cricket, she launched off her bark and onto my hand. I will be much more careful managing her feeding now for her own safety

    My favourite feeding gif

    Namea sp. Tambourine "Black". I haven't had any means of measuring her fangs yet, but 11mm chelicerae behind each fang is certainly aids this spider with double impaling its prey on the first bite. The ferocity and curiosity of this girl makes her way harder to manage than any of my Atracids
  17. Bark love

    Bark love

    Even in her new enclosure, Yukinoshita will not ditch her cork bark. At least I know for sure her unusual terrestrial behaviour is due to true love and not discontentment with her substrate

    Yukinoshita in her new setup, with a little added greenery. Time will tell if she will chew it up

    Aname sp. Gold. She's getting rehoused today with better substrate that should hopefully make her feel more comfortable with digging. As much as I love seeing her outside, I feel it's mostly because she doesn't like her substrate and id rather her feel happy than me getting to see her more
