Yet, I got a nice gift in the mail this afternoon! G. pulchra, GBB, B. vagans x albopilosum, P. regalis, P. penderseni, P. ornata, P. tigrinawesseli and P. smithi.

That GBB is a little psycho, though! I tried to get it out of the vial, and it starts making a break for it! the vial, my desk, my hands, my desk again, back into my hands, all the way up my arm, and my floor. I'm surprised it didn't hurt itself jumping so much! I was able to recapture the little rebel once it finally settled down on my carpet. The POKIES didn't give me that much trouble.

Thanks, J :D

nice selections! for having a bad rep, my regalis hasn't given me trouble and lots of others have comment the same. my ornata on the other hand... hopefully yours isn't secretly a demon like mine.

a hybrid...? hopefully this wont turn into one of those crazy threads just for mentioning it.

D'oh! Right. I got it mixed up since I never had to write it before. It's a tiny little s'ling, so I don't think pics are in order yet, bholmes. I was hesitant to mention it at first, but since I have absolutely 0 intention of breeding it or calling it either of its parent species, it really shouldn't turn into one of 'those' threads.

So far, my GBB is starting to web and my ornata took a cricket. Looking good so far! I hope my G. pulchra turns out the opposite sex from my other one, it'd be pretty cool to try a breeding project in the future.

Right Pictures are a must in the future. At least make the Pulchra a female. I believe I've got a little 2" male.

P. smithi. Sadly, my camera is much better at focusing on the dirtiness of the vial. I tried so many times, but this is the best it got.


P. tigrinawesseli


Thanks,
Rob

Sweet!

I'm really excited to see the hybrid, I wonder which characteristics it'll get.. Before anyone starts, no I do not condone purposly breeding two different species, but the outcome can be interesting to look at all the same..

LOL All my P Regalis did that. Annoying really since I went threw all that trouble of arboreal setups. 4" and they are still burrowing. :rolleyes:
