Just got this girl today. She has already taken to her new house. :) Just thought I would share.

She's in need of a good molt (and a male!). I haven't seen many pulcher around lately...

She does, but little... I think it's just that she needs to molt.

I wish I could find a juvie male, or a sling lot to raise or something... lol

How big is she? We are both in the same boat with looking for a male.. :eek: hopefully before my girl gets to far into her molt cycle I can find a decent male to pair with her.. Then maybe... Just maybe... I can get a nice little egg sac.. If I do.. The hard part is getting rid of the slings.. Not that people dont want them.. I am sure I could sell or trade them fast... But.. I am not sure I could actually part with them... {D

Best of luck finding you a male & breeding if you plan to do so..

This girl is right at the 6" mark.

I'm really hoping that a male comes along right after my female molts... if that happens, it will be smooth sailing, i've already got one of the huge 90quart sterilite tubs that I would use for a breeding box..

I hear what you mean. Knowing how scarce they are now, I would definitely hold back at least 25%-33% of the sack. Maybe more than that depending on how many are in the sack.


And to be honest, right now I wouldn't mind sitting back, relaxing and just finding a couple more females before I try this project. More mating sized females = more chances at success, so i've learned. But, once again, can't find any... I'm lucky I got this one.

Hey! If you find a male, don't be hoggin' him for yourself, now! lol Surely if you find a good male you could send him to a few other arachnomembers that have females... :D

I have a few pairs but my males are not mature. Now that I know where the females are I'll keep y'all in mind when my little bucko's mature. Bliss, you found a beauty there. Di

I'm in the similar boat to Di. I have 2 penultimate boys as well. At lease I suspect they are penultimate. I have a big girl as well and she is gorgeous! I love that fade to black on the abdomen!!!! :drool:

Note the black color blocks on Bliss's girl's legs which your photo doesn't have. side by side the two are really very different. Di

Great pic Tommy!

She is beautifull!

Ive just had a good look at my two females! My two are not that diff from eachother! and my Gigas looks exactly like the op pulcher!(espacialy couse it hasnt any black on abdomen!) but one diff!
The diff that clears this up!
My T gigas has orange spinnerets! The Pulcher's are black!

Sweet! Sorted!

Tommy yesterday I really thought to myself. "Ya know, I wonder how much I would pay for a female P. pulcher when I finally find one?" So Tommy I have $300 how about it? :p I really wish I would actually pay that much. lol.
