While it may be the fact that my monitor is dimmed, your O.sp Blue has a darker abdomen than mine does, my female has more of a milk chocolate color to her, some days I can even see her heart.
Maybe because you're comparing your sub-adult female to a 1" sling? :p

You have a point, it's been a while since mine was that small so I don't really remember what it looked like, though the rest of the colors pretty much are the same.

Ha! I need to try another session without all the adult beverages. ;)

WOW. How have I overlooked this species... drooling...
These are just juvie colors. They go through a nice color transformation as they grow. :)

Gorgeous shots as always Chad!
Thanks David! :)

Question about the bromelicola, do you keep them with bromeliads or do they do just fine in a tank without them?

Thanks Jan, too bad they don't stay this color.

Beautiful Haplocosmia himalayana!!
Thanks David! Hopefully he got his job done! :D

I do not. This one is still small and in a 32oz deli. I have the brown thumb when it comes to plants. I might look into fake bromelialds when it gets larger and if it is a girl. :)

Shark-tanked the P. ornata? Or did she kill him outright ?

The fang picture is fantastic, especially as you can see the little opening for venom to come out (or maybe I'm just seeing things)

I'm delighted to see the photo of the penultimate male Haplopelma sp. 'Bach Ma'. Nice pic!! Best of luck with him.

I'd really like to maintain that species in my collection and I hope that your breeding efforts with this species are successful.

I have never shark-tanked. If the cage is large enough with Poecilotheria, I put the male in and leave him for days, weeks, up to a month or two. It really depends. This male lasted two days with the female.

Thank you. You are correct, you can see the venom orifice. :)
