One of my eight Avicularia bicegoi, "Brick Red Pinktoe", molted about a week ago. It is between 2.5 inches and 3.0 inches long toe_to_toe. I do not force them to spread out so that is just a close measurement. I aquired them from...

...about 6 weeks ago. They are all as fat as can be and they are mostly just lounging around staying in their tube webs that look like a cocoon. Finally one of them molted about a week ago so here are several pictures of this Brick Red Pinktoe...















Myself I think that they live up to the "Brick Red Pinktoe" as a common name.

Thanks Everybody

Thanks Everybody.:)

I am looking forward to New Years Day 2008 when they are closer to adult size. Comparing pictures of the bicegoi and of the huriana I think that the bicegoi looks much darker with more brick red coloration while the huriana looks to be more of grayish brown color and an overall lighter shade. This is only observations on my part based on web pictures. I would like to have both of them side by side in a quality photo as adults to compare them.

I am also looking forward to is seeing my Avicularia amazonica, "Giant_Amazon_Pinktoe", hitting the two inch mark from toe_to_toe. I had one of them molt in transit to me and another just molted a few days ago. I got lucky and aquired five of them at 1 inch long toe_to_toe from...

I was told that they would like the adult Avicularia amazonica near the bottom of the page at this link...

They still look very much like any other Pinktoe sling at this size. Here are a some of pictures of the Giant Amazon Pinktoe...

I am looking forward to seeing them later this year. Thanks, :)

I also have nine Avicularia versicolor. I aquired eight them at about 1.25 inches from...

This is one of the eight. It molted about week ago and is now about 1.5 inches toe_to_toe...





I am looking for the Avicularia geroldi for my next group. Also possibly the Avicularia purpurea and the Avicularia minatrix. I would bet that it is obvious that my favorite new world Genus is the Avicularia.:)

OK, this one came as an extra vial in my box. I did not even request it but it sure was a surprise to find it in my order along with my five Avicularia amazonica. It is a very nice species and so it became my son's tarantula. It came with my Avicularia amazonica from...

http://www.southernspiderworks.com

So here is my young son's very first tarantula. It is called the Psalmopoeus irminia or the common name of the "Suntiger_Tarantula" at about .75 inches from toe_to_toe...





Yea I know. It is not an Avicularia but it is very active and there are several arboreal species within the Psalmopoeus genus that are very nice tarantulas. I am certainly looking at this genus and giving it some consideration.

Thanks. I wonder how many eggs were in that sac? I noticed that he still has a few of for sale.

My son knows that it is his tarantula even though he is young. He likes it very much so I would expect him to like it even better after it is a year old. They look great from all of the adult photographs that I have seen online.

just wait until that Amazonica grows up and looks like this!!









AWSOME! I can hardly wait for all of mine to all become that size.

Can I take it from the photo of the one on your hand that it is still a young juvenile?

I had read that these are one of the largest Avicularia species. What is the current size of your Avicularia amazonica?

Thanks,
