They're great spiders, one of my favorite species. Such awesome camouflage.
I’ve actually been kind of blown away by just how well my H. mac + S. cal can go incognito - wasn’t expecting this when having images of adults in my mind - saw some pix of sling as well but still, really hit me when experiencing it face to face

which makes the fact that my E. olivacea mimics the same behavior but stands out like a sore thumb really funny

and i absolutely love their personalities - such silly and feisty little things - 100% have decided they will be permanent exhibits in my collection and I will always have them

Got a adult female A. gabeli and a 3/4" female C. elegans. Wanted both these T's for a long time and the pictures really don't due their colors justice.

The A. gabeli was very slow and docile, but the little C. elegans decided to go for a run all over my bathtub, all over my hand, then finally into it's new home. Lol

Very pleased with the new aquisitions.

These are number 111 to 113 :).
70 different species .... But so hard to sell doubles after you grew them up from small sling.

Got this little cutie from one of my local distributors for Small Business Saturday. A sling/juvie hsyterocrates gigas. For a fossorial, this little dude has been out and about most of the time that I've checked on him, so I'm guessing he's hungry haha

Not pictured, I also snagged a chilobrachys "vietnam blue" sling, but that one hasn't snuck out of hiding yet.

After happy luck with the c. darlingi, I'm trying my hand at more fossorials :D

Waiting on a Chilobrachys huanini, Lasiodorides striatus, and a confirmed female GBB to get here tomorrow.
Will have update pics once they’re rehoused in their new enclosures

Got them!

Confirmed female GBB around 2 inches, Chilobrachys huanini, and Laisodora parahybana

The Chilobrachys doesn’t feel like coming out of its shipping vial, so I just plopped it in the enclosure for now.

Arrived yesterday:

4cm B Hamorii sling
2cm GBB sling

Both settled in and had a nice meal. Tomorrow (appropriately as it's my birthday) I will also receive a 7cm confirmed male X immanis. Taking me from 4 Ts 2 days ago to a grand total of 7!

~2.5” G. pulchripes and one other that is in the process of being housed and will get pics when ready. Awesomely gentle and docile through the ordeal. One of the largest T’s I’ve had to unpack so super happy it went smooth and zero anxiety.

Spood #2, C. darlingi. Thought this one was going to give me a run for my money and bolt.

Note to self: Next time have the enclosure ready instead of using a temporary cup; it was in there long enough to shake off any shipping lethargy by the time I was ready to house it.
