Heteropoda davidbowie? I had no idea those were kept in captivity. Fascinating collection. Much more variety than I've seen over here.

+1 on this... I thought they were protected.

Amazing frickin' collection. From what I see here in the states, most of the hunstman spiders you're keeping have become very difficult to obtain here (not sure why... import ban?). The various wandering spiders... well... I've never really seen those offered regularly (possibly at all... actually).

Hi mate

I am not really good in enclosures, because of I am very pragmatic.

Not really beauty/eye catching enclosures...

here`s a (verly little) insight:

Holconia insignis (Australia) enclosure


still a baby - they grow big!

pairing + eating... both at the same time


Heteropoda boiei (Malaysia) enclosure



Cupiennius granadensis (Costa Rica) enclosure
