    Hey there,

    have a look at this, finally i got a bride for my nigriventer male! Furthermore for the first time since long years i got a Phoneutria again that even behaves like a Phoneutria is expected to (well, ok, at least in my opinion....) ;P

    Pissed off from the beginning, just as i love them! More pics when she´s in her tank, for now she seems to prefer the cosyness of her transport-box...

    If anybody here has a clue where she could originate from, i´d like to hear opinions, as i´ve never seen such bright-yellow leg-undersides with any Phoneutria.

    Now enjoy.... :clap:

    After sitting in her transport-case for something about 4 hours, my new lady finally decided to get out and take a closer look at her new home...

    Strange coloration indeed :eek: , more pics soon...

    Thanks Lelle!

    I know that pic and thought about it, too.

    I mailed the guy who sold me the spider, if he knew about the localitiy, but i haven´t got an anwer so far.

    Will keep you updated in case i´d get any locality infos on this one.

    Damn, Damn, Damn!

    My so-called "adult" male nigriventer is just doing a molt again!

    The palps are already out of the old skin, looks like he´s adult now and ok . Still stickin to the old skin with a few legs though, i hope he´ll make it.

    How big does this spider still want to get ???

    Confused greetings,

    Thank you guys for sharing the pics with us.
    These are the best phoneutria pics I ever saw.

    Are they any updates?

    Thanks, i´m glad you like them, too.

    Yes, there are indeed updates. Unfortunately bad ones: my male got stuck during the molt. I tried to save him with some kind of emergency-operation but he was so weak after i got him cut out of his old skin, he died one day after. A pitty :mad:

    He had grown quite big as you can see in the first pic. Now it´s time to say goodbye, what´d be better suited for this, as a pic from better days:

    I am looking for specimens of this spider preserved in alcohol. I'm kinda poor at the moment, so I can't pay too much for them but I'd be more than happy to pay for cheap shipping.

    I'd even trade mealworms or superworms :D

    Any help is appreciated

    Wow, now thats truly a nice thread... My compliments, Adnan, for all the pics :)!!!! It's the first time i ever got to see that specie and i have to say that they really seem very interesting!!!! I just love their mad little faces and the FEEDING PICS with them eating roaches were GREAT!!!! You should make posters out of them...

    Hi Stephen,

    are you sure that´s P. fera??

    How do you know? Where does it come from? What size is it?

    Sorry for that bunch of questions, i have kept P. fera some years ago, the specimen came from french-guyane and looked quite different to yours. That doesn´t need to say much, but what i´m furthermore wondering about is that pattern on the abdomen of your spider... P. fera is known for having some kind of hering-bone pattern.

    I´ve seen a Phoneutria spec, which looks quite similar to yours, but it´s not a fera.

    Vice-versa all P. fera´s i´ve seen so far from different parts of south-america looked quite different to that one. Really strange.

    Whatever the species is, nice Phoneutria! :}
