Meet Matilda, a confirmed female P. antinous "big black" that arrived last week. To say that she is feisty is an understatement. Bolted from her container
kicking up a storm of hairs. Once put into her enclosure, she started lunging at anything that moved. Immediately grabbed a cricket before it hit the ground!
This little fluff ball (A. geniculata) molted a few days ago. She is TINY. About the size of the fingernail on my pinky finger. I snagged the molt and looked at it under the scope and saw TEENY TINY spermathecae. She doesn't have a name yet but she's precious.
Jasmine (AF P. ornata ) got a new enclosure today to replace the pathetic one she came with. I ordered a kit and glued a conversion panel onto a 10 gallon aquarium to create an arboreal habitat. She was very fast and skittish, but everything went smoothly. She's now settling in. I can't stop looking at her. Such a magnificent animal.
This is the first time I've been able to get a decent photo of her. She's very quick and skittish, retreating at the slightest disturbance. Meet Tigerlily, P. vittata. True to their common name, she's almost ghostly looking.
