Freshly molted Iridopelma hirsutum, unsexed



Freshly molted Poecilotheria formosa, female





Just received this MM Encyocratella olivacea, breeding in mid december :)



Monocentropus balfouri with egg sack. She's being a good mother. I took some shots through the glass, as she was webbing around the sack a bit :)

Thanks, she's a beauty indeed! Yeah, go nice and slow on new additions, there's plenty of time :)

Freshly molted, unsexed juvenile



1st breeding attempt, unsuccessful .. Before I introduced the male to her, she gave me a threat pose, and then she stayed that way.
The male started to drumm, but she was not answering back. I'll try again probably tomorrow

Hello people! :D

Well, I got some bad news, and I got some good news! Let's start with the bad ones..
I pulled the M.balfouri sack after 35 days since it has been laid, because I had a feeling that
there is something wrong with it, and unfortunately I was right. About 35 eggs all dried up, so no balfouri slings this year unfortunately :/ Oh well , I'll try again sooner or later :)

And the good news! I haven't posted for a while now, so in this time I had a dozens of new molts, so today I decided that I will take a couple of last shots in year 2015 :p
