I received my order from E-Spiderworld.com today. But the bad news is that my Cyclosternum Fasciatum didn't make it. I think it had less to do with freezing to death and more to do with the fact that whoever delivered it was not very gentle with the package even though it was labeled fragile. I surmise that it had rough treatment as part of the delivery process because her poor opistosoma is nearly separated from her carapace. So she's a lost cause. But I have been getting some encourage signs from my Aphonopelma texense. She's in a death curl but when I gently touch her she seems to be able to move her legs in a limited way. She also tried to nip at me too. I currently have her in a deli cup with a wet papoer towel. I have placed it inside a bowl of very hot water to raise the temperature in the dish. I have set the dish near my heater for added warmth. I have been promised replacements for my T's, but I'm hoping only the Cyclosternum fasciatum will need to be replaced. I'm begging all of you to pray that my Texas Brown makes it. If she does I'm going to call her Lucky.
