    Tonight: Avicularia metallica

    Note, most of what's out of focus is due to motion blur . . . Asterisk is quite fidgety. Pics courtesy of Lori.

    Lori eventually rescued me so I could put her back in the tank. :p

    I'll update tomorrow with another species.

    Nice pics. its beautiful.
     
  3. So apparently it's quite challenging to photograph my Ephebopus rufescens through the side of the tank while it's feeding . . .

    This is one of my newest arrivals. It burrowed right where I wanted to within a day of rehousing. :D It's also one of the most polite "defensive" Ts I've ever come across -- it was very slow-motion and matter-of-fact when it flared at me. :p

    Gorgeous A. metallica! I can't wait for mine to grow up
     
  5. Tonight, my tiny Aphonopelma moderatum . . . I fell in love with these guys on an observational trip to West Texas in 2008. My previous sling died during a heat wave last summer. :(

    It's eating an equally tiny cricket.

    Great pics!! I love the name Asterisk!!
     
  7. Thanks! I named her that after seeing how she hung out on the wall of the tank, whereupon the current owner (my fiancee) promptly declared that Asterisk now belonged to me. :D
     
  8. I was going to post this picture that I took a few days ago of my B. smithi tonight:

    Nice! Did she give you any warning she was going to molt? Web mats and such? I have a few new Ts that I think may be in premolt but not sure.
     
  10. The warning was FATTY-FATTY-FAT-PANTS!!!! as seen in the first pic combined with being able to see the new arrangement of urticating hairs through the old exo.

    You can faintly see a web mat in some of the pics but it wasn't obvious to the naked eye.
