B. Emilia - Araña - Spanish word for spider
B. Boehmei - Scarlet O'Hairy - because of their vibrant red coloring
G. Pulchripes - Chiquita - because of the yellow banding on the legs
A. Avic - Drusilla - was already named when I got her after a character on
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
GBB - Hugo - named after the ruler of Venezuela where this T comes from or
after hurricane Hugo because he's so fast
G. Rosea - Ginger - cause of her coloring
6 A. Versicolors slings - no names as of yet
1 G. Rosea sling - no name yet

Picking the names is my favorite part

no names for mine... except when somebody asks me what they are... I call them "itchy" or "bitey", depending on where they are from. :razz:

I usually name my medium sized T's with greek mythology names of gods and goddesses, while for big ones that would be Titans,before the greek gods ruled the earth..planning to name my future T's with norse mythology characters but theyre to difficult to remember sometimes..I R need to familiarize. :wall:

I'm crap at coming up with names, so I've only ended up doing so for about half of my T's.

My H. lividum is now Houdini, since s/he pulled a fairly insane escape the other day...and my B. smithi is Morrisey, in honor of The Smiths. :D

The others will get names when the right ones come to me.

dannyboypede, if you genetically give your T vocal cords and teach it to say "THAT is a tasty cricket" you will be a god, haha
