Has anybody even seen these around in the last few years? I've wanted another one for over 10 years and I've not seem so much as a peep about them for a VERY long time. Back then of course they were just Cyclosternum sp. "Cobalt Redrump".

Cheetamo13, or jeremy, is huge into thrixopelma. If I recall correctly he has bred them a few times. Only problem is he is never on anymore.

He didnt show up to the last years bug hunt either.

honestly I havent seen them around in about 2 years. though I admit I havent really looked for them.

The whole Thrixopelma genus is crazy hair flickers, so I stay away if possible. though I wont part with my T. ockerti for nothing.

My T cyaneolum wasn't mean at all...he was one of the few T's I've ever seen who not only enjoyed to be held but demanded it at least once a day. I called him Velcro spider because he'd desperately try to climb until I got my hand under him and got him out on my arm...then getting him back into his enclosure was INSANELY difficult.

Once he was on you it was like trying to get fuzz off of velcro LOL, and he'd poo on me at least twice...often huddling down against my wristveins and refusing to move.

He never kicked either, but if he didn't want to be handled he'd swing his behind around like a purse and hunch down against the ground sort've like an Avicularia.

Oh yeah...he was a touch skittish if you tried to handle him when he didn't want to be, he'd swing his behind around like a purse. Once he was ready though he'd cling to my arm and never once threatened me at any time, only time he ever kicked was when I first got him out of the container from the LPS.

He was truly irreplaceable :(...I still miss him.
