    Also are those taps living in the side of that wall?That is really interesting to see!Its amazing how they've adapted to live on man made structures.
    The photos of all the garbage in the river and signs of deforestation are quite sad tho.Harsh reality that a lot of those beautiful places could be gone one day!
    Thanks for sharing Pato

    Hi Chris,

    It's some other kind of cool Mygalomorphae that I haven't seen before. I've found them living in the same palm trees as the Avics. Sometimes in the same palm you could see more than one Avic and this other Mygalomorphae living close to each other.

    It was weird that I found the Cyriocosmus living as an arboreal. The ground was flooded and she had made her nest in a big Capinurí tree, at least 1,5 meters above the ground.

    The Tapinauchenius I wasn't expecting to find! And when I was walking in the town at night, I saw an Avic and very close to her another arboreal, which turn out to be a Tap! Then a friend saw two more females in another wall with their young around them. The holes in the bricks were perfect hides for them. It was really cool to watch them hunt every little insect that were attracted because of our flashlights hehe. :D

    Yes it's also harsh to see the bad part of things...At first I was very sad and disappointed because of this. It was hard to let it go to enjoy the trip. It's really depressing. It's amazing how most people don't realize what they're doing with such a wonderful place...the consequences are the destruction of the most amazing tropical forest that still exist in this planet...and it's already happening...and very fast.

    Best regards,
    Pato-

    Yes that would be correct. What about the Tapinauchenius Eric? What do you think?

    Looks like a communal tank would work with these guys eh...

    pato_chacoana Arachnoangel

    Humm, not sure about a communal...I think they were tolerant with each other because they hatched not long ago and they found good spots for shelter when young...

    Hi,

    i guess the Tapi is subcaeruleus. They were in imports from this area in Peru.

    Hi Steffen,

    It could be that one... They look similar. I heard that T. subcaeruleus were from Ecuador, not Northwest Perú...but maybe they're in both countries, I don't know! Unfortunately I don't have better pics.
    But I have some slings that hopefully will grow quick :)

    Steffen,

    Also, I've been looking photos of spiderlings and juveniles of T. subcaeruleus and they are very different from the ones I've found.

    Thank you Dr. Ace. Yes you should go back in the field! It's really great...it's what I love the most, just being around such wonderful nature... My next international trip has to be in the Amazon again that's for sure! Still have to decide where, but the Guyanas are most likely :)

    Muchas gracias Emman! Fue un viaje increíble... ya estoy pensando en el próximo! Ojalá pueda ser pronto :)

    I tend to spend most of the time I am in Brazil around the Natal/North East (Nordest) region. MUCH dryer, MUCH sandier. Also, more beaches.

    I desparately want to see the Amazon. My brother in law (partner's brother) lives in Manaus, and would really love to see that area - which seems like a good place to start. He has a personal story of finding a 6' anaconda under his kitchen sink...

    Hi Pato,

    ok maybe my mistake. They were sold as subcar... not sure if anyone determined them. i have also one of the animals from an Peru import from this area looking similar to yours(could be the same ;))

    Best Regards,
    Steffen
