Can somebody tell me all about this spider? I wanna know stuff such as ideal housing, growth rate etc.
BEcause before I had it I was notified that I was getting a Vietnamese Tiger tarantula. When I looked up care sheets it was known as C paganus according to teh websites I saw. THen when I got it I realized it wasnt one of those at all.Originally posted by LaRiz
Then why are you saying you got a Cyriopagopus paganus for Christmas?
H. minax and the pet-trade Cryiopagopus paganus are seperate species that look nothing like one another.
I think this should answer your question: =;-)Originally posted by Garrick
Have you tried breeding your pair of those "whatever they ares"?
Just throw them together, Haplopelma spp. are easy to mate. Often the female is almost the more active part and forcing the male to mate! =;-) After the male is introduced in the tank of the female, he will tremor with it's body and walk to the entrance. Normally this is enough for the female to come out it's burrow and they will just do a quicky! =;-) If she won't come out, he will enter hers burrow and try to drag her out. Mating will take place in front of the entrance of the burrow, sometimes the female is still half in the burrow half out.I have a mature pair. The male is living in an enclosure within the female's large enclosure. I'm waiting on her to fatten up a bit and to see a sperm web out of the male (they've only been together 2 days so far).
Any notes on breeding you'd like to pass along?
Ok, heres is only a short answer, because I think most people here on the board would be bored by the long answer with the listing of all taxonomic characteristics and even don't understand it (since several even seems not to understand the differences between using Haplopelma aureopilosum and Haplopelma sp. "aureopilosum" I have tried to explain several times in the past.) =:-(Also, what makes people (Volker and others, I presume) that these are not Cyriopagopus paganus? Locality of collection? Breeding experiments?
What makes all the dealers think that this is the C. paganus sensu Simon, 1887?? Who has IDed them as C. paganus and what is the explanatory statement for this output?Also, what makes people (Volker and others, I presume) that these are not Cyriopagopus paganus?
