Shelby was given this little guy last year at the ATS conference by Georgio.
He just molted out mature, and he's a small one! He's also the most defensive aphono I've met, especially for a male. He will readily threaten and strike at me when I open the container. Hence the plastic thingy in my hand. Once out of his 'burrow' he's docile as a puddy tat.
Unfortunately, he's destined to live his life alone, since I don't think ANYONE has a mature female.

nice looking aphono....

Any clue as to where they are from? I ask as I have seen some pics of what looks to be that from some friends that run across Ts from time to time and it looks extremely similar.

Phil,
no, I don't have a clue...
I don't know where it was found, or if it was CB. It was donated by someone last year, but I don't know who.
It might have been captive born, it was pretty tiny when we got it.
I have not heard of that particular name before or since, either

Holly, I have a mature female I got from Dave M. last year. Let him make a sperm web and let's get them together. I'm in Phoenix. John

Hello Holley,

Speaking of Males, are you still interested in my mature male Carlsbad Green? If so, PM me. My other question is, Is Georgio on the forums or does he have AIM? I talked to him at the conference and he was a really nice guy.

Aloha,

Ben

Ben,
yep, I'll PM you on the male. and I don't think Georgio is on here, but he posts occasionally on the ATS Yahoo list.
He is a very nice guy, Shelby really adores him LOL!
