"Boris "...The Ambassador of T's for me
His time has come....He is dying:(
It is breaking my heart..watching him struggle to move..He has little control over his legs when he moves...and has trouble just standing....He startles at any movement near his enclosure...so I have place a cover over the container...I can only hope he left his legacy with the his female counterpart...I sure a bummed...I know everyone told me this was going to happen...but I like my denial...He was my first T and quite the teacher...

It is sad to watch them go...the males deteriorate so quickly.

Sorry to hear that, it seems just a short while ago you were posting here not knowing anything about your little Boris. It sucks watching them go, I just lost my little B. emilia sling after watching it struggle for almost a week from an unknown affliction. Hopefully his position has enriched your life more than you expecte :)

Sorry to hear of your loss. I've lost a few adult males, mostly A. avicularia (I am particularly good at rearing up adult males of this species, I think I have 3 fems out of 10 total A. avicularia, with 4 or 5 adult males).

Sometimes you get lucky though, I have an A. avicularia mature male that was around for about 9 months then completed a successful post-ultimate molt and is actually eating again.

If nothing else, in nature Boris likely would have been eaten by now, so at least he's going out in a better way.
