hey,,,,,,,,,,when ya gotta ya gotta, that's if its still avail
thanks for the tip
Wow that is an impressive spider! I wish some juvies had been available, it would be great to give breeding these a shot.
Got my Liphistius ornatus a couple of weeks ago. I think...it was so small I could hardly see it.
I put her in a sling cup with a premade burrow where she went into at once. A few hours later she had already made the door. Impressive! First time I feed her I saw the door open and the prey disappear. Can't wait for her to grow bigger! Do they grow relatively quick?
While not being a trapdoor, I have my I. mira to watch until then. She's out every evening and night, sitting with the door as a hat. Cute.
My speed demon came as a tiny, tiny sling feeding on hatchling crickets. Wasn't too long that she moulted a few times and didn't look so delicate.
The first 18 seconds of this video is of my Liphistius cf ornatus. It's the same video I posted on my dedicated spider thread recently.
Beautiful! I've seen your vids on this one, it's the reason I got my self one! Thank you!
I bought mine as Liphistius ornatus, but I see that you put "cf". Are there several variants?
I bought mine under the name Liphistius cf ornatus so that's just the name I use.
Thyropoeus mirandus is incredible Getting high on my wishlist.
@ThorsWebb It is probably wise to use cf. considering how low is chance that pettrade Liphistius were reliably identified. To by honest, many many animals in pet trade would likely deserve cf. or even sp. label ...
Ok, thanks for the advice. I will use "cf" too until she is big enough to identify correctly, if it's even possible to do.
bothriocyrtum californicum and apomastus sp
Cyclocosmia latusicosta, these are what are really being imported these days under the incorrect ID as Cyclocosmia ricketti. As far as I've seen, Cyclocosmia ricketti have never been in the U.S. However I have some of these available if any trap door fans are looking for one.
How about the ones i got? are those ricketti or latusicosta? i put a pic earlier in this thread
They are all latusicoata, same as when they were imported
So you're telling me I got ripped off
So, what do the real ricketti look like then? How do we differentiate them from latusicosta?
