Excellent Phil! I can see she likes to make mud pies in her water dish. I have several T's that do that too. Don't know why they do it, do you? :?
Nice looking Haitian though.

water dish mud pies...

I have seen several T's do the mud pie thing and can only guess that it's their way of trying to adjust the humidity where they want it to be. Most of my drier species like the Brachys do it but occasionally even a wetter species will do it also so it doesn't really seem to follow any set pattern.

Nice picture, Phillip...I wonder if yours came from the same place mine did? :D I thought you said these were supposed to be nasty? Apparently Phyllis thinks not:

cool...

Glad ya managed to calm her down. They were far from calm when I was moving them into their containers after they came to me. But I am the 1st to admit that even a so called nasty one can be handled as long as you move slowly and have a clue what you're doing. Nice pic by the way.

Ooooooooh! Those are very nice spiders. I must rresist the urge to want to purchase one though. I already have enough spiders!

I agree that these spiders are very underrated. I currently have 3 specimens and I think that they are among my most attractive T's.

I wouldn't mind getting one of those myself. But I might have too many T's as it is already.

the reason Swift's aren't brown...

The pic of Swifty's female isn't faded brown because it is a fresh molted adult female. The one in my 1st pic is only around the three inch mark and Joy's needs to molt. I have a female that looks like Swifty's as well she just isn't as fresh and thus doesn't look as vivid.

And by the way sweet pics Kelly. :)

Aaahaaa. Big difference anyhow, still, whatever state, it's a nice species :)

Mine has a wonderful personality, though I don't think that's common in the species. I can carry her around any old way and she just sits there. They're supposed to be aggressive, but I haven't seen it yet. I'm sure I will, though. I may try to find her a man someday.
