    My aunt found a MF Hogna Aspersa during winter and I have fallen head over heels in love with her. She's huge, geourgous and certainly acts like a tiger! She's awesome and she was pregnant when I got her, so now I have babies! I'd love to work with this species as they are large and unusual in appearance. does anyone else here fool with them?
    here is my girl:

    Just an FYI, they are no longer in the genus Hogna

    Tigrosa aspersa (fitting it was moved into a new genus named Tigrosa hehe)

    the young will disperse in a couple of weeks. release them or raise them. offer tiny flies or pinhead crickets. they do fine in deli cups w/ a pinch of damp moss. dessication is the wolf spider's worst foe! mist @ least every other day. aspersa live in burrows or beneath debris in the wild. i find them along the edge of woods in moist clay soil and hunting beneath night lights. i imagine the females can live a couple of years.
