I bought a 5" female Chaco goldenknee yesterday. I put it a 10 gal. tank. Ands it looks really cool. I gave it a pinky, that it ate.

I'm not going to post any pictures of it though. It is just way too cool and nice looking..;P

She's a sub-adult..

Oooooo congrates!

Shop has a herculese babooon sling I have my peepers on.....

And an odd one that they hoinestly don't know what it is.
Came in with a shipment with the obscure name Peru Green.

Is Jet black with bluish/greenish highlights when sunlight strikes it.
And crisp clean marks on it's knees rather like a Seemni.

I want it.
But I want to kjnow what it is. :p

oh oh oh...you meanie!
Mine has turned out to be a male :(
I am so bummed, even the males grow glacially slow!
I'm going to end up buying a guaranteed female someday. Last ATS conference, John Hoke had a beautiful female on display in the hotel lobby. I had to walk past her every day, and I would always stop and drool :)

Wow, I hope mine gets that pretty when she gets a little bigger. She is around 3" now, still growing though and eats like a pig.

Ernie,
GORGEOUS T!!! I LOVE IT!! (sorry for the caps and exclamations) I have a male, probably female. I'm hoping swifty sexed it wrong..(sorry kelly) It just molted a week ago. The molt measured under 2 inches..My little goldie is so so sweet. I have decided that I'll be buying a female, if this sweetie turns out to be a male. And yes, I may try my hand at breeding. Btw, nice enclosure!
Peace,
Gillian

Kelly O,
I'd be a fallen angel if my wife knew how much money I spend on T's was. LOL;)

Nixy,
The unidentified Peru species you said the store has sounds alot to me like Thrixopelma pruriens (Peruvian Green Velvet), I have had one of this species that I raised from a spiderling. I've had this one for over 10 years, Bryant Capiz and I were good friends and he had a "new species" that he gave me for my birthday about 10 years ago and now it's a beautiful 6" female. Not too overly aggressive and it's a good eater.

Andy


I also have a H. hercules, if you buy that one look for it to be VERY aggressive and it digs a huge complex set of tunnels, you never see it.

vulpina Thanks.
I know I'm just going to end up getting her and taking a pic. :)

But I wasnt to wait till the snow lays off a bit.

I don;t want my little green mustang getting stuck someplace on the way home and ending up with a peruvian spidercicle.....

genious,
These are massively sweethearts, much more so than my pulchra. I have an older juvie, and I love him to pieces. So much so that, I'm going to buy a female, so I have it a good, long time.
Peace,
Gillian

I want her. They've had her for I think about a year.
But I think my next purchase is going to be another Chevron. The twins want. "Slinky's baby sister or brother." and have been asking about it since we got Slinky.

So I'll have to save me pennies and grab the "peru green" as soon as I can.


She's not going anywhere.

Not a "flashy." enough spider for the few people other then me that goes in there I guess. I think she's Lovely though and would be a " for mommy." spider. Since the twins have picked out all the others. :)
