vietnamese tiger

I have two of these, and they're characters to say the least. Mine don't burrow like they're supposed to(I know they can't read caresheets), and they've webbed up almost exactly half of their jars. Mine eat a lot and are very aggressive compared to my other T's. Everytime I move their jars, I'm greeted with a threat display and a few strikes in my direction. These t's are great if you want something aggressive in nature.

I found my L. difficilis dead today. It was a 5/8" sling and it looks like it dryed out. I misted it cage pretty often, so I'm not sure where I went wrong.

I have Malaysian Earth Tigers. One is a male and the other is a female and both are adults. I am currently mating them as often as possible to ensure that I can get an eggsac. They are quite pissy and will hiss if disturbed and do not hesitate to strike. They are very gentle when courting though and tolerant of each other.

yeah, i lost 3 l.dif slings last week. broke my heart... i think they were the runts of their sac as i bought several from the same person--the 3 i lost were the smallest of the bunch. alas... :( it's been a rough winter for me. lost my first tarantula--a curly sling who apparently had a rough molt. when i found her, she was completely out of her exo and dead as can be. pobre kelly. sorry to hear about your loss MrT...

i have several of the fires but i havent had them long enough to tell you much about em. mine are only about 1/2-3/4 and none have molted for me yet. they are quite the little burrowers though! of course, most of my slings are, except my little GBB who web up a storm!

this is just a guess, but are you being tempted by todd's latest sale? those species look like the ones i saw on his list. i opted for a c.thorelli as well as the 2 avic species. couldnt pass up those prices!

sorry i cant be of more help to ya!
