Some pics (updates)

Here's my Avicularia aurantiaca. I got it as a 1/4" sling

This is my favorite of the spiders I own. My female Phormictopus. She's about 5".

N. coloratovillosus has become one of my favorite Ts. Fast growing, gorgeous, feisty but manageable attitude - just love mine. Nice to see other people with this great T.

Hoping my little P. cancerides sling turns out female like yours as well.

I like your taste in spiders. I really like the genus Phormictopus. My female P. cancerides is definitely on my " wouldn't part with it" list.

Thanks guys,
I was going to post a pic of my P.smithi but the batteries of the digital camera I borrowed died. I'll give the batteries a rest. Maybe I'll be able to squeeze some life out of it and post the pics later.

That Phormictopus just looks better with every molt. She has some nice purple highlights. The Nhandu is looking better than my A.geniculata of the same size. They really are fiesty. It rarely kicks hair, but easily rears up when annoyed.

Here is the Poecilotheria smithi pic. It still has a way to go before adults colors show up. It's about 3"

The quality of some of the pics aren't that great. The camera I was using was acting up. This is as good as the get until I own a quality camera of my own.

Where on earth did you acquire a P. smithi and (if you don't mind me asking) what did you pay for it?

Hey Atrax,
I got that smithi from Tommyspiders. I'm hoping I can get some more of those. I would give you a price but it brings back bad memories:) .
P.S I also have a P.penderseni

Beautiful bunch you have there.
Our N. coloratovillosus is about an inch now ( yay) and we can't wait till it gets some more size.
But the markings are starting to show up real nice already.

Thanks.
The hercules is about 1.5". I never see him. It's always in its very elaborate burrow. I use fishing line to get him to come up to the surface. I run the line across the top of the dirt near his burrow entrance. He comes up thinking its food. He gets a reward for coming up (Nice fat cricket).

I can imagine about the bad memories but still, what an awesome pokie to have. Now that I think about it, I really can't even recall having ever seen one listed anywhere for sale. That's a rare pokie you got there. I'm guessing it came from a European bloodline? I'd love to see more pics as it grows up. Same with the P. pederseni. PLease keep updating?
I'm not familiar with Tommyspiders. Do they have an on-line pricelist?
If you came across any more available P. smithi, and if you don't mind, please pm me to let me know. :)

Thanks.

Hey Atrax,
Tommy is actually a breeder. He doesn't have a website. He always has a table at the reptile shows here in the area. Two shows I know he attends are the NY metro reptile show and the Penn Hamburg show. I don't know what bloodline it's from, but I'm sure it's euro. I'll pm you if he has any smithis for sale.

You won't be waiting long. I got mine last June when she was about 1.25", she's now at least 5", she's the fastest grower in my collection.
