Ok, So today I recieved two T's from Mark (mebebraz). An A. moderatum, and A. Avicularia. both are around the 2 inch mark. Due to my apt manager not keeping my box inside like she SWORE she would, and happening to get stuck in traffic for 2 hours on the #$%^%$^&%$ dan ryan xpwy, I got home to find a very chilled (around 45 F ) box conataining two very chilled spiders. At first, I thought them both surely dead. One was half into the death pose, and the other looked almost totally into it. I thought that the cold had perhaps stopped the transition into said pose. However, unwilling to give up hope, I placed them both on my coffee table, (which is glass) and placed a boiled pot of water under said table. about an hour later (now) I have movement out of both, but only if disturbed. Gentle blowing results in either of them scrunching up, then relaxing again. I take that as a good sign. Anyways, I am wondering if any of you have experience in things like this, and might be able to offer any further advice on how to keep them alive. I've used the boiling water pot's steam so that I had no direct heat, and it feels just under 90 on the table, if that. It's slightly warmer than the rest of my apt.
