I've had Big Scary the stirmi for about a year and a half now and I hadn't seen a single threat pose until this morning.

We've been through a couple of rehouses, enclosure maintenance, etc. and it was me throwing a cricket in front of her that was the last straw, apparently. 😂

Received my latest order of spiders today; an Aphonopelma chalcodes sling and a juvenile female Aphonopelma moderatum. First time I've purchased a confirmed female T. We decided to name her Tigger, with some help from our kids :rofl:

I guess my P. regalis, Sterling is in a weird mood today. I saw him peek out from behind his slab of cork bark, then quickly (and with a surprising amount of force) toss a bolus directly into his water dish. Moments later he poked his butt over the edge and sprayed some poop right next to it. Gotta love Pokies!

Last night I checked on my Aphonopelma hentzi females. And I saw this...

Its not a clear image, as she is very deep in her burrow. But...is that an egg sac?

Thank you for your words of encouragement....
Actually, there is a chance that it could be a fertilized egg sac. If your female was wild caught it could be fertilized egg sac. Are you breeding aphonopelma hentzi? I should have asked first.

OK...now I get it.

Back in October, I mated the two females to 3 different males. I didn’t think to take any images till the last mating.

So yeah... I’m pretty sure the eggs should be viable.

Moved my A. chalcodes enclosure around a lot yesterday and when I was done she went full flat pokie on me, as if to say "Stop moving me, I've had it!"

The Aphonopelma seemanni mature female I guilt-purchased on sale at Petco on Valentine's day 2019 has finally molted and doesn't look like hot garbage anymore. She is a sleek queen with shiny dark grey hairs.

My L polycuspulatus sling molted into something only slightly larger but WAY more grouchy. He bolted AT me when I walked over to check the enclosures and when I lightly touched his lid, I got a full-on threat pose.
This from something not much bigger than a quarter.
Lord, I hope he stays small for a while. Re-housing is going to suck like whoah.

Yesterday, Mrs Blue Berry decided she needed to add a whole new section to her web castle. I feel really bad for you, sweetie, but I will have to destroy it... :shy:
