Hey all, I've been busy afield but lurking on occasion after hours the past few days. Man, I'm a happy camper!! I just received the last 2 slings- and longtime wtbs- to round out the collection for the rest of the year.... :embarrassed:no jeers regarding the lst statement.........ahh, alright :p... go ahead, then! I figure it'll be the best for both me and the t's- with regard to workload and other doings presently. No pics yet -gotta quit getting t's for now and spend more time with the camera :razz: The new 2 are

1. Grammostola iheringi 0.0.1. -2"-+ I've never read or heard of any rosea, neither have any of my pulchra been overly fast but DANG :eek:- This little scrapper is FAST!. I got on the floor of a friend's carport and pulled open the wrapper readying to put it in the new enclosure. BOOM- It jumped out of the moist paper towel 2" to the ground and bolted across the patio under a trailer tongue. Not quite, but sure seemed nearly as fast as a P. ornata. This is my first extremely lively one right out of the packing. The long legs in comparison to my pulchra stand out. That fire orange-red butt glows!! I'm gonna name (hopefully her) Rio unless there's a single word in spanish/portuguese for "rapid river"? - hey Fran?

2. Theraphosa spinipes 0.0.1- 2.5-+". This little one is the epitome of tenacity! When I uncapped the end of the paper towel I found it hanging on to the end by it's fangs. This one's quick, but doesn't appear overly skittish and seems quite sure of itself. I finally get to see the 4 pink socks in person :clap:. Haven't settled on a name...... Tenacious Guyana has a ring, though.....prob sounds better in spanish too?! {D

Armando, Thanks!... it's done! Theraphosa is christened "T.G." :)

You know, I never was into that bubblegum band- can't remember their name Whammit, dammit or something like that. I did kinda like that hit song Rio. Of course now I'll have to reword it for my iheringy baby-

"and when she runs you'll suck her dust like through a fan......oh Rio... Rio, jump a..cross the Rio Grande!"......eh:barf:

Likewise, I probably need to scoot back to Texas one of these days asap. I'm not certain about it as I've seen alot of Theraphosa here and there over the years, but I may have actually never seen a true T blondi. :eek:

Fran, Thanks, man. Sounds great to me! She is now officially tagged! AArgh..uh oh! Now I'm gonna have to abbreviate that one for sure- RR. I'll stick with Rio for short- but "Rio Rapido" it is!.... or... in hopes of being female- Ria Rapida ? {D

2 more li'l pigs

Great! It appears there will be no "babying" with these two. G iheringi took a p-k adult cricket right out of my hand! I'm fairly sure the Theraphosa has eaten its also. I put it at the edge of its hide about an hour ago....now its gone. :clap:

Hi Toni, Thanks. You'll certainly be impressed! Paul told me yesterday that they were big eaters :) Terry

Forgot to add. I don't have a card reader for the computer yet. I'll get around to pics and such eventually.
