Acanthoscurria brocklehursti aka Fluffy aka Don't mess with my water dish or I'll splash it everywhere

One of my first two ts (obtained two at once) raised her from a dime sized sling. I love her, hate her hairs. She's in a ten gallon now until her next molt then will be upgraded to something acrylic, more live plants and ground space. She's always out in the open and deserves it.

Here's a few older pictures. The pics up there are the most recent.

I have a bunch of other pics on my old phone. Once I take the time to transfer/convert them (iPhone doesn't like to cooperate with droid) I can image dump. :p

Pterinocheles murinus aka Sephiroth(yes, I sing the song everytime I feed him/her)

The second of the first two ts, was a teensy .5" blur of orange. The most calm obt (minus a couple of interesting altercations).

Poecilotheria regalis aka Sparkalee

This was my third t. Got him/her at about .25". Complete psycho, the only arachnid I've been bit/stung by but luckily it bit my nail and was just a wee deli cup dweller. 20160605_002006.jpg 20160605_001324.jpg 20160605_001408.jpg 20160605_001606.jpg 20160530_234353.jpg

I originally went in for the H. maculata they had listed on their website but they apparently don't update often enough and it had already been sold. :(

Anyways, I walked out with a Grammostola pulchripes and an obt sling (couldn't resist the price and it's cute little threat displays). The pulchripes is for my daughter and her momma. :)

I'll snag a pic of the obt sling later. I couldn't get a good picture because it was being "uncooperative".

20160704_222313.jpg H. mac "Cloud"

Notice the cricket bundle?

One of the vents in the top is big enough to squeeze little crickets through so I can drop them in fairly quickly and easily. I dropped three in and by the time I went to the other side to see what happened after the flurry of movement there was a bundle. The speed of some of these critters never ceases to amaze me.

Beautiful pictures! Your regalis is a girl btw. I presume you've changed the mesh? Lovely enclosures. Eek!:eek: Handling of such potent species!

How can you tell my P. regalis is a lady?

I haven't had any issues with the mesh in the years I've been keeping and alot of others haven't had an issue but there is the others who have. I do intend to after I get some acrylic/acrylic tools and experience with working with acrylic. Even if not for their safety but aesthetics, I've grown to think screen is ugly and obscuring.

Handling my obt was not intended. It just casually strolled out during maintenance. I irresponsibly skipped grabbing my catch cup and had no other guide other than my hands.
