I found this pretty girl, an adult female G. porteri at my local pet store. Got her for $70. A pleasant surprise since I've been wanting one of these for a while but only ever see them as slings. I love her pink and grey coloration. Subdued beauty that really appeals to me. I'm going to name her a pretty, feminine, flowery name once I come up with something. A very calm and docile spider, a real sweetheart.

Had two orders show up today!

A. chalcodes subadult female (~10cm dls) - GORGEOUS and so calm. Did a few slow laps before having a long drink and settling down. Named Dusty.
C. fimbriatus sling (~2cm) - probably the largest of the slings and the most cooperative; has already started webbing up a bit! Named Minouche.
I. mira sling (~1.5cm) - the smallest of the slings, and the least skittish or bolty. I know I have a soft spot for baboons, but it's SO cute??? Named Caligula (because it has little boots)
O. aureotibialis sling (~2cm) - the most defensive of the group and was a BEAR to get out of the vial. I'm talking threat poses, slapping, the whole nine yards, only to then just walk out like nothing happened. Named Godiva (the joke was originally about the fact that it's a beautiful spider, but I'd never catch it out but now I'm like "Well maybe I should've gone with something more grumpy-sounding")

plus a surprise freebie Cyriopagopus sp. "hati hati" sling (~2cm) who was just a bolting nightmare to house initially (I had it in a holding container briefly because I needed to drill holes in my spare tall), but then was actually pretty well behaved for the rehouse. Fuzzy, purple drama queen. Named it Yolanda.

Told myself no more T's but couldn't resist picking up an undescribed sp. and a new one I somewhat contributed to placeholder naming.

Phlogius sp. Dimbulah

I found a breeder for Tapinauchenius rasti and ordered a female. Now I'm waiting for better weather
... I'm really looking forward to it!
