Today I spent some quality time with my A. chalcodes watching her bring tons of dirt out of her fresh burrow.
Also, my C. cyaneopubescens decided to make new hide next to door of her enclosure. She made it nice and cozy, webbed up perimeter, then left it and now she's roaming enclosure again despite being in heavy premolt.
today two of my slings Cyriocosmus elegans and Pseudhapalopus sp colombia both about 1.5cm DLS kicked hairs at me during maintenance and the later thow a semi hearted threat posture too.
Proud dad moment .lol
Yesterday morning, after a little over three weeks hiding in a large web cave, my Psalmopoeus pulcher finally molted. He's (gender unknown, just guessing) now about 4.5 - 5 inches DLS. I would love to pull the molt out today and try to determine its actual sex. Now I'm just waiting for it leave the web cave, so I can retrieve the molt...
Doing the regular water dish maintenance,i opened my balfouri's enclosure. At first i did not see it anywhere,thought it was hiding somewhere in the web,as it always does.
As soon as i touched one of the water dishes,out of nowhere,BOOM! I guess it was hiding in the substrate/web castle right next to the water dish so i didnt see it. Damn gave me a heart attack
Feeding day. Star of the show was my H. Gabonensis. Cricket would step on its web and it would come darting out to find it. I would compare its speed more to a Lycosidae then a Theraphosidae. It's crazy.
Tonight my N. chromatus got its first cricket from the “big cricket bag” and took it like a champ! They grow up so fast, it brings a tear to my eye.
(it was totally the smallest cricket in the bag though)
Finally,after more than a year in the hobby,after 2 males maturing,and tons of speculation on all my other specimens, finally have molt confirmed a female!
And it's the prettiest of all,the Caribena Versicolor (Now at 2.5 inches DLS)
Like a breath of fresh air after the mature males
