A rare sight for me, my B. hamorii decided to fully come out of her burrow. PXL_20210329_185318263.jpg

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.

I saw my T. albopilosum out of his burrow for the first time since January. He then filled his water dish up with substrate and pooped in it 20210329_235228.jpg

My G. actaeon is molting! I had to leave him on his back and go to work- he'll be all fresh and new when I get home <3

Today my C. darlingi is getting an enclosure upgrade. The small enclosure in there is her old enclosure, definitely too small for her now. PXL_20210405_200613050.jpg

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...

I had a really great feeding night last night. Almost everyone either had molted or ate, and I got some really nice shots of my prettiest specimens. It was super rewarding.

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

Watching A genics feed always makes my day, I love this species! I got a little nervous there for a second admittedly, thought I had another loose feeder fiasco

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. PXL_20210413_031642490.MP.jpg PXL_20210413_031438122.jpg

Noticed my N. coloratovillosus's abdomen is nearly black, FINALLY. Last moult she had was 18 months ago, and she's not all that big so I figured she was due for one. Can't wait!

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. :bigtears:

(it was totally the smallest cricket in the bag though)

Upgraded my GBB's tank (top one) and planning on upgrading my A. seemannis tank next week. I also didn't know the speed of GBBS! Good thing the tank has a lip or she would have ran right out.

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 :D

Made my check this morning and found two egg sacks. There was no chance to get better pictures without stressing the moms...
