LoL.. I wasnt planning on it.. But I figured I am fixxing to get an egg sac from my girl one day.. What the heck.. Right?Man you surprised the heck out of me with that! I have already started planning for when transfer time comes. I gotta be prepared for that little speed demon!
The whole rump probably is dark.. You just cant see it all due to the urticating hairs that are covering it.. You notice at the front of her rump nearest the carapace.. Its the area that is dark.. Im not saying she will molt anytime soon.. Im just saying dont offer her anymore food.> She wont take it until she molts.. Which.. IME.. Wont be to terribly long from now.. But nothing I can really say with a garuntee..That explains it lol. I thought the whole rump turned dark before they molted (I'm still learning) . Thanks for the heads up!
Was a good trip.. Hope we find something really interesting next time.. Though.. I really enjoyed seeing those wolfs with an egg sac.. That was really neat..Joey, +1 on those new additions! I had a great time looking around with you and Tommy yesterday. Hopefully our next field trip will be productive as well. :wall:
Sounds like a plan to meJoey, Don't forget. You've got one of these li'l pulchras coming at you soon as well. Actually, I feel I'm still too far ahead after this awesome little camera you gave me .
Yep, that's one huge genic. The guy I got her from just tossed in 8-10 crickets a week to feed her with an occasional break. She definitely does need a diet and hasn't molted in over a year. Fully stretched out she's 6.5" at least. Her opisthosoma's larger than a golfball. She'll make a nice display spider not to mention being ready to breed once she molts. Maybe we can go halves on a mm.
