I placed an order for 4 tiny tiny Cyriocosmus aueri slings. Cyriocosmus species no 6! I've never gotten slings this small and hope that I'll be able to raise them all. And of course hope to get at least one female. 😅

I wish you luck! I myself have a tliltocatl albopilosum sling which in my opinion is a great starter tarantula. I'm new to the hobby, but after getting 1 sling, I want many more! I might do the same and get 3-6 slings.

Saw one of my A chalcodes getting ready to molt — spinning in circles, scratching its abdomen, laying down a molt web — and came back an hour later to see it flipped:

My other A chalcodes had her first meal since molting last week, and afterwards she stood up nice and tall:

Today in the spider corner- everything is chill, a rare moment when nothing needs doing and I can take the time to just enjoy them.

My 4 first instar C. aueri arrived - +1 freebie! They are extremely tiny, bodylengh about 1mm or less. All were alive even though they were in transit since Monday. They're so adorable!

FINALLY was able to change the water in my T. albo's enclosure. She's always on or around the water dish when I need to change it and she'll attack my tongs when I go to grab it if she's too close. She was far enough away yesterday that I could snatch it up and get the nasty dirt water out.

Oh and my N. coloratovillosus came out of her blocked off hide, no moult. :grumpy:

Changed his water dish a few days ago. I’m still amazed how thankful he was.

Also offered a perfect chance for a close-up.

He stared at me like this for the rest of the night.

So what notable thing happened in your spider room today? Here's what's notable in mine. I'm a little spooked out. Spiders are so intuitive somehow. They just seem to know things sometimes.

Today is the first day that we may have 100 degree temperatures here in Phoenix. It's been really warm for about 2 weeks, so we've had the air conditioner on and the door is closed. As far as my spiders know, it's a normal april with temperature in the low-to-mid 70s. I go to check on the spiders this morning, and my beautiful male New River Rust Rump chalcodes has gone to Spider Jesus. Today. First real summer temperature day.

And who knew, because we're like 20 degrees above the average temperature right now, but the air conditioner is on. He lasts until today of all days. I find this very weird, but you know what? It's truly summer when the boys of LAST Summer are finally ready to give it up to a new generation and finally give up the ghost. Mind how you go, sexy pants. I just hope I get a sac with your genes in it, you good-looking son of a gun. :bigtears:

BUT... I did get the most adorable little A. Metallica sling from Beau, a guy I met on Craigslist, and his adorable son--both of whom will be at the Predators event in Mesa this weekend along with several of us Arachnoboarders. They're good people. I know this because my bearded dragon told me so. He's a real dowsing stick for people of character. He just knows who's worth knowing. :)
Well I only have one spider so it's not really a tarantula room but it's the only room in the house with a captive spider lol. My sling is always so cute! Whenever I talk sometimes the sling moves around it's pretty cute. It will move closer to me. I think it's because of vibration I tend to be pretty loud when I talk I know they can't hear but they have pretty great hairs that help them with vibrations and chemicals.

I'm having a great tarantula weekend. My Pamphobeteus sp. Cascada sling molted while I wasn't home! Gotta love this species. Always on display, beautiful colors, fast grower, eats everything. Don't tell the others, but this buddy is one of my favorites. :happy:
