I don't have a picture thread for tarantulas, as I usually use the Genus threads to post pics of them. I've been getting more into other mygalomorph, and true spiders, so I created this thread to share them in, rather then starting a bunch of new threads. Please check out the Genus Linothele, I will keep pics of those separated in that over there.

Viridasius sp. Madagascar, these are fast growing spiderlings that keep these colors to adulthood, growing to about 4 inches.

Beautiful spiders, Tom! I am especially excited to see that you have discoved the K. hibernalis. These are awesome spiders that I have bred and raised for many years.

I look forward to your future pics/posts on this thread. :D

Nice pics! You're making me want to expand into other Mygales. Good luck with that pairing!

P.S. It's about time you started some sort of pic thread. ;)

How do you safely separate the Sicarius spiderlings from their mom? Or are they communal and can live together? Just curious.

They were easily coaxed into separate vials with a paintbrush. Despite having potential dangerous venom, they cant climb smooth surfaces like other spiders, making them fairly easy to work with. Regardless these are not spiders for beginners.

As for being communal, I never saw them eating each other, but I was suspicious of cannibalism, when the # of slings seem to diminish, while fat siblings were walking around.

Time to bring out the big and the bad- Northern tree dwelling funnel web
That thing lives in a tree? That's pretty cool, nice spider. Do you have any pics of them living in the wild to share?

Heteropodra sp. "BronxNY" mature male, Heteropodra don't live up here, but there is a population if you know where to look lol.;)

Hi, yes they do live in trees and they're arguably our most venomous funnel web, if you annoy them they drop legs and strike repeatedly they're that highly strung, they live in the trees like this
