Thanks, I am even looking forward to the day that they are only 2 or 3 inches long.beetleman said:ahh wow:clap: very beautiful avic! that's another to add to my list:drool:
That is for sure. They are slow growers. It may be a year before they hit a nice size and it could be Xmas next year before they breed, assuming that I decide to breed them. I keep forgetting to add the sp. in their name, owe well.ShadowBlade said:Growing slow as heck aren't those little A. sp. amazonica 's?
Thanks, I was thinking about doing something like that. I did notice that this species puts little patches of webbing flat against the container wall. That probably helps them climb around it when then they get closer to molting time. I have also noticed that the Avicularia genus in general start to have problems staying attached to smooth surfaces about a week or so before they molt. That might be why they stay in their web cocoon until they molt. Simply for protection against other preditor type animals.put a piece of corkbark in there so theyhave soething to climb on. instead of sticking to the walls. ..i usualy ust get a knife and peel of a strip from the big pieces i have
I did not have any corkbark so I bought a 3 foot long piece of dowel rod that was 1/4 of an inch in diameter for 39 cents plus tax. I cut them into 3.5 inch lengths Some of the Avicularia amazonicas are allready putting web around and on them.put a piece of corkbark in there so theyhave soething to climb on. instead of sticking to the walls. ..i usualy ust get a knife and peel of a strip from the big pieces i have
