Beautiful spiders:clap:

I love the L.robustus, the legs #4 remind me of E.pachypus, never seen this species before:confused:

Keep on posting.

Hi

Very nice and congratulation,
The schoedtei is amazing.
I think the L. robustus is not Lyrognathus or L. vialoiceps is not Lyrognathus. See only capapace these are from 2 genuses.

They(L.robustus) are known to be very hard to keep alive in captivity but they have been in captivity for almost 1 year and they seem to be doing well and eating well. I guess the trick is to keep the enclosure WET, they love it wet. So far i have 15 of this species but it seems to be very hard to get a male or you can say impossible to get 1 cos i've never seen a male before. Anyway I have discovered another unique species from Cameron Highland that plays dead when disturbed. Before that i would just throw away the spider but soon after i discovered they came back to life the next day. That means i got cheated by the spiders!! smart! If possible, i will take some video of the tarantula and share it with you guys. Do you guys know any other species that are known to play dead?

Thanks for the compliment, i find the C.schioedtei rather different. It has very bright coloration when i got it.

Hi

Is this heavy webbing a product of captivity? I only ask because the ones that myself and Mr Hijmensen found in Malaysia did not show a great deal of webbing around the burrow mouth at all.
All the best
