last one.... (usumbara). i was trying to feed this thing a little cricket, but a big one jumped in the vial instead. Man, that little Usumbara sling turned around and took that thing down like nothing i've ever seen before.. the cricket was really big compared to the sling, but I wasn't gonna stick my finger down into that vial
its actually Holothele incei... Amazing T! I know they are kind of aggressive, but, mine keeps running into the palm of my hand and hanging out... it'll bolt up my fingers and chill on my palm. I havent seen any aggression out of mine (yet), although i just got it.
I'm not the one to ask about the temper. Its a pretty good eater, nothing like my older usumbara though.
It's a beautiful T, and the juvenile colours are a force to be reckoned with (look out versicolor )... Can you kind of see the beauty and colours and markings of the sling?
i highly reccomend this species from what i've read and heard. I couldnt turn it down for under $10 either =D
what can i say?..... AWESOME! That is great, all those slings look great, i'd love to have any of those! I bet you can't wait until they grow up, that should be fun. Good luck with those Dave!
P.s. I'm very jealous. I want that petstore near me.
Very nice pics Dave, very keen on the H. incei myself.
PS the reason you are not getting the full colours - because the bowls are deep and small, the light bounces off the rim and does not illuminate the inside of the vial properly. (I've found this out the hard way) For well-lit pics, you need them in open shallow containers
