Hi Moose35,
Beetleman has been keeping T's and pedes for almost 20 years.He has more
than 100 T's and the best collecting of pedes I ever seen.He has 10 pedes
over 10 inchs.He has the black form of S.Gigantea and S.Gigantea-the yellow
leg from Peru.A while back Glades Herp was offering a $1000. for 12"
Gigantea and could not find one.Then thay lowered it to 11" and then to 10".
for a $1000.This went on for 4 months and still could not find one.Thay
needed it for a National Geographic's Special about south american predators.
I had a S.G.Robusta that was a little less then 12" and then there was
Beetlemans S.G. from Peru.A 12-1/2 inch giant.It made my Robusta look like
a pedeling.Well Robbie from Glades and I talked Pete out of his S.G. and it
wasn't easy to do.Beetleman-Pete got his $1000. and would buy it back
tomarrow for a the same $1000.Pete loves his bugs.The N.G. program will
be on sometime this summer.Staring Pete's S.G. from Peru.Pete I'll stop by
and see you sometime this week.Anyway to answer your question.Thats
were Beetleman,I meam Pete,comes from.

PS:Thanks Beetleman for posting.Like always short and sweat and right to the point.

I was thinking that he meant that he hadn't seen him post in a while. Cool stories. Photobucket probably has way more space than you will ever use. Also, you don't have to cut the size of you pics down for forums using Photobucket, Photobucket does it automatically, at least that's how it's been working for me. I think I would've tried lease that big pede to them:drool: .

Hi Galapoheros,
You could be right.Moose35 if I misunderstood you i'm sorry.But it's a great
and true story.Robbie said he was email me when it knows when it will air on
T.V.Then i'll post a announcement on the board.You should have seem this
monster.Robbie still has it.If you know him he might send you a picture.If
photobucket can handle 34 pictures that will be great or 64 would even
better.This way when I finish the females.I can move in and start the males.
I have all 17 species of Brachy's.Unless thay come up with another one.Well
I'll keep you posted.I got to work tomarrow.Got to go.

Yeah your photobucket file will handle that easy. I have over 900 pics and several short vids there and according to a bar graph I saw, there is many times the space I've used up left, it's pretty cool.

Hi szappan,
I can't wait to see N.G. program.Robbie got it the day before thay needed it.
He took a 3 hour plus drive to pick it up.Because there was no time to ship it.
Talk about last minute.What did Robbie say about the pede?He's had it for
about a year.It must have got bigger.You should have ask him to send a
picture to you.She is a monster.She would take down large mice.She is
incredible.

Hey Rob,
We talked about all sorts of stuff, mainly the American Constitution I think :D
But I remember he told me the same story about the gigantea you wrote, that they needed one for NG and kept having to up the price or lower the size to get one. Man, I can't imagine parting with one, not that I'm judging anyone, $1,000 is $1,000, and when I had my giganteas it would've taken about that much to make me part with one. Man I wish they were more available on the market - but those hardwickei's you've got is a step in the right direction!

Robbie's a really cool guy, I hope I get to meet him one of these days (I'm on the other side of the pond).

As much as I love S.Gigantea.Lets get back to S.Hardwickei.I had 1 molt.I'm
not sure when.I was rearanging her container and moved a piece of cork bark.
I found the molt under the bark.I put every thing back to were it was.I did
not see her.I'll give a her couple of days before I disturb her again.Thay all
seem to be doing great.I missed the fact that she was in premolt and I don't
no why.I normally don't miss things like that.I still have no problem's with them.
I keep making changes in there containers.I'm trying to figure out the way
thay like there containers.This is to lessen the stress of captivity and help
make them more apt to breed without eating the male or her eggs later.I think
I'm pretty getting close now.My biggest problem is that sometimes I think to
much.I need to learn to stop and just leave them alone.Everything seems to
be going great.

Hi Beetleman+Redapache,
Did I tell you about what happened to one of the S.angulata's we got last
week.The 6-1/2 incher was burrowed in for 4 or 5 days and I was checking
to if she was alright.I was a little concerned because she was new.I took
some forcepts and moved them arond in the substrate to I found her.Well when
I found her.She took off straight up over the top of her 8" high container.
never touching the top of her tank.She ran behind one of the bookcases in
my spider room.It took 5 or 10 minutes to track her down and caught her.I
can't beleave how fast she is and high she can jump.She 6-1/2" and she
jumped 9" or 10" high.I should paint a S on her chest for superpede.She
amazing.When startled S.angulata might be the fastest pede i've ever seen.
It's time to go back to S.Hardwickei.Redapache and Pete have a great day.
