HUG ME!!!!!!!I'm assuming you've tried it. When OBTs extend their little legs upwards, it's not a threat pose, they're asking for cuddles and kisses
So, first of all, when I mentioned "New worlds are for any beginner" as a myth, I was referring to the typical NWs such as Brachypelma, Aphonopelma, etc, because you can sometimes end up with a mental B. hamorii, or sassy A. chalcodes.The E Murinus is a butthead?
This^^^. ICU’s in general.ICU's are helpful no matter what is wrong with the tarantula.
This is slightly disagree with, while they don’t have water dishes in nature. I have never found a down side to including a water dishes at all times, but I have seen down sides to not including a water dish at all times.Water dishes are required for all stages
If they were REQUIRED for all stages I wouldn't have successfully reared hundreds of healthy tarantulas from sling to adulthood over the last twenty yearsThis^^^. ICU’s in general.
This is adamantly disagree with, while they don’t have water dishes in nature. I have never found a down side to including a water dishes at all times, but I have seen down sides to not including a water dish at all times.
I didn’t say they were required!!! They are clearly not required. Maybe I should have worded my reply differently.If they were REQUIRED for all stages I wouldn't have successfully reared hundreds of healthy tarantulas from sling to adulthood over the last twenty years
That would mean you don't actually adamantly disagree with me then. I originally said "Water dishes are required for all stages" was a myth, I didn't say they were bad.I didn’t say they were required!!! They are clearly not required. Maybe I should have worded my reply differently.
I’m only saying that I’ve never seen any downsides to including them, but we do occasionally see people have problems without them.
Well, guilty. I feed the slings every 4 days. With the hamorii and GBB getting bigger, they're going to a week schedule. It works for me.There's nothing wrong with having them it's just they're not needed. Feeding an adult tarantula every 3rd Wednesday for instance.
Bazinga. I want to say right up front that I don't doubt this. I have seen crickets eat a toad. That one really pissed me off. Anyway.B. dubia are incapable of harming a tarantula.
When I did research on my first T(T albopilosus) I read they can get a leg span of 13 cm, and I thought that was per leg lol, boy was I wrongThe belief that ts, or even certain species, require very specific temps and humidity....I could just leave the word humidity to stand on its own.
The belief that certain substrates are best or are required for certain ts.
Abdomen size is an indicator of sex....ummm, no its not.
And finally....the adult size of anything Lasiodora.....its never as big as people think.
Dubias can harm T's?"If you're comfortable in a T-shirt then they're comfortable"
Humidity being relevant to tarantula keeping
"P. irminia are uber reclusive psychopaths but P. cambridgei never hide"
"[Insert species] are semi-arboreal"
The notion that if an Avic enclosure doesn't have so many holes in it that it looks like Blain went to town on it with old painless then it isn't well ventilated enough.
"[Insert any species that isn't M. balfouri] can be kept communally"
B. dubia are incapable of harming a tarantula.
There's bloody loads tbh.
