Alrighty! I am super excited about this.. The P. irminia is like.. My #1 favorite T.. They are fast, fiesty, & gorgeous! I love this sp.... I have to thank Jake (J.huff23)... He kindly sent me a MM.. He did say he is an old fella... So.. Hopefully I get lucky & he pairs up with my girl...

About my girl.. She gave me an unexpected molt.. Yesterday! :eek: So.. I am glad she did that.. Now I wont have to worry about her molting after I pair them.. :D Well I hope she dont.. Anyways.. I am going to get her filled up before I pair them...

Here are a couple shots of the MM... Thanks again Jake! :)




Here are some shots of my girl.. She is mean! I opened the enclosure for all of 2 seconds.. She started to come at me.. I think the fan blowing in the room might have got her attention..

Here is Esmerelda...






Anyways.. I will keep y'all updated... :D

Very cool! ive bred these guys twice! it was actually the first non 'local' T i bred!
They also very fast breeders! the actual mate can take a second! i thought there was no chance my male did the job that fast, but she produced a good egg sack! like i say everything is fast with these guys, my girl produced a sack 25 days after mate, they then took 34 days to become full eating spiderlings! thats only 59 days from mate to having full eating spiderlings! and my other girl was 84 days total!

Sweet bud! hope this helps! good luck!

The difference between pokemon and Tarantula's is with T's you don't go battlin' weirdos like Team_____ and Catch 'em all.:eek:
I wish that was the case.

Be VERY careful, mating is VERY quick and then the female WILL go after the male.

This is what you might see after she gets his sperm

.

GL, keep us posted, this is one beautiful T!!!

Thanks Hobo.. I just hope her appetite dont lead to snacking on the male.. :eek:

BTW.. You har seeing things.. I dont even have as much as springtails in my enclosures..
Yip! i did just that with my cambridgei! and the best place to start is with a nice freshly molted girly!

Cool!
Speaking of cambridgei.. I need a MM for my girl... :D
Hopefully the old man does good! Good luck!
Thanks Jake! He still is a feisty little booger... :D
good luck redneck :D too bad you werent in canada, or id be wanting some babies hehe :)

LOL, no reason to be nervous, I saved this guy with a LONG pair of tongs, you should be able to do the same.

Just bear in mind (IME), this girl was tolerant of him until they mated, I then tried to mate them a second time and she was not having any of it.

GL, this is a BEAUTIFUL sp.

Nah, I just group up in the original pokemon sensation. Some things you never stop loving. Kind of like the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. :cool:
