You know, I have seen Cobalts with the blue carapace and abdomen, and I have seen them with the light creamy carapace and abdomen. But I think this is the darkest brown one that I have ever seen. It really reminds me of the carapace/abdomen of the Cyriopagopus paganus. Is this normal? It does look great?

I think it has alot to do with his photography, but this one looks quite a bit like mine did. I've never seen one with a blue carapace, though. Most good pictures of them show the greyish carapace with brown throughout it.

Marcus - Glad to hear yours is doing well, she's looking great.

Well, grey with hints of blue hues.

She's a beautiful girl Marcus.
Does she stay out quite a bit? I can only see mine late at night with a flashlite, and then only for a second.
Great pictures bud.:)

Awsome looking T Marcus!

MR T I suggest going to Wal-Mart or Target and looking where the flashlights are for the head lamps and find one with a Red Lens. I got one for hunting snakes at night and they can't see red light so I tried the same on my T and it seems she can't see the Red light either maybe just a fluke but I can use it when she's out cleaning herself and she never runs. But turn on the regular light and ZOOM she's gone!

Thanks guys!

Usually she does, but she recently (about 2 months ago) constructed a beautiful burrow and I never saw anything but her butt or her front feet. hehe. But I was using a majority of soil in the substrate mix and new it wouldn't last too long. Sure enough, I saw a hint of white fungus on a far corner (luckily away from her burrow) and made a quick substrate change.

I got a chance to finally play with her for a little while. Didn't get any pics cause I was by myself. : ( I also didn't get a chance to hold her because I didn't want her running up my arm or anything with no one there to get her off of my back...literally. But I did get to watch her walk around the floor and she was very patient when I was petting her abdomen and her legs, they're so soft and fuzzy. But yeah, now she's on almost pure peat...as I can't seem to find any verm.

That's right. She's extraordinarily beautiful in the right light. This, for example, was under a flourescent heat light in my bathroom. I recently found this light was best for taking pictures when capturing true colors. So far this is the only thing I've found useful about this light...it doesn't exactly give off the heat as it was proposed.

I think she was suffering from a combination of dehydration and depression. I bought her from a Pet shop that was displaying her in a small pet pal with plastic carpet, no hide, and an empty water dish in a very arid room. Poor thing. I didn't think she would make it for the long. The funny thing is I actually laid hands on her and prayed for her and with a little work it all paid off. :D

Thanks again for the compliments...I'll relay them to her!

In Him,
Marcus
