My name is Dennis Kittel and I live in Sweden at the moment I've collected spiders and T's since I was a kid but only recently got seriously hooked in the T business, used to keep and breed true spiders before that. My hopes is that some day I'll be able to breed my own. Some of these photos are old so you'll actually be able to see some growth in some individuals and molts as you scroll down. Hope you enjoy the pictures, lets start of with a classic:

0.1 Grammostola rosea


I love the iridescent coloration, unfortunately most of the irredescent has been peeled off during an escape attempt :(


Is that the red color phased one?:?


Grooming itself?

0.1 Acanthoscurria sp.


It's quite big actually :p :eek:


"Damnit, it's locked! I'M HUNGRY!!"

0.0.1 Acanthoscurria geniculata




Yummie, Dennis cockroaches is the best fast food chain ever! {D

0.1 Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens


I love the irredescent blue!! GOD! :worship: (just bought it)


Same picture enhanced!


Yummie!

0.1 Pterinochilus murinus


Play nice!




I don't prefer any handling at all, this is my method when I move T's

0.0.1 Pampobheteus sp. "Machalla Ecuador"


Isn't it just adorable! I can't ever imagine it growing into a big brown monster!


It's grown up a little! Aww! :eek:

0.1 Brachypelma smithi


I love the vivid colors of this species, they never seem to stop eating either!


yummie eating cockroaches

0.1 Lasiodora difficilis


soo tiny


Starting to mature!



Rehoused and loving it, notice how small she is compared to the following pictures.


Eating it's molting mat 2 days after molting on it!


Freshly molted!


She is really huge now, 1 or 2 more molts and I'll have to switch tank :8o



0.0.5
Avicularia versicolor


So tiny!




Tarantula Tanks aka TT's

Theraphosa blondi


Lasiodora difficilis


C. cyaneopubescens

Some pictures I (and some cameranewb friends) took during rehousing, enjoy!






When I saw an opportunity to handle I tried it, my first time handling this one and I was a bit scared honestly. My friends shot the handling pics...

Yeah its real though it only lasted a couple of months before it withered down but it was real nice for display. I'm uploading a few more pics today I managed to catch my P. irminia out in the open for a brief second! :)

Finally my internet is back up, here's a few images on some newly molted and bought T's. Unfortunately my genic juvie turned out to be a male, I've also recieved molts from all my A. versicolors and my Pamphobeteus sp. "Equador" which should be ready to be sexed actually. Here's the pics!

The molt from the A. genic i bought from Claes in Sweden, I'm 100% that this is a male if you consider the Epiandrous fusillae comparisons in previous pages:


As mentioned my dear Pamphobeteus also molted recently. I'm trying to identify it every day but I keep failing, hopefully after he/she hardens up I'll get a better shot at it. wish me luck!:




At the tropical faire in Malmo, Sweden I managed to buy a pretty P. irminia female. These two pictures is all I've seen from her since, she is really quick and very shy I have to say but its normal. Her speed is pretty mindboggling I was watching her walk in the terrarium one day and as i turned my head to shout on my brother and looked back agan she was gone.. poof ninja vanish!





I bought some slings from Slan at the faire, P. ornata and P. pederseni here's the ornata before a meal:


Last but not least a mugshot of one of FBI's most wanted felons:

I'm superhappy I managed to sneak in and steal the molt from the pampho without disturbing her and here's the result! :worship:
