Hey! I don't have a camera or a scanner to take a pic of our T's (maybe soon though) She is an Adult Female Orange Usambra and She just molted. She is 4 or 5 yrs old. We got her from a person.She has been healthy as long as we have had her :)

Great pics of a beautiful spider!

How do you manage to upload files that are over 640 pixels?

Cheers,

He housed them off site then linked them in the thread using the img button. This is also how he can post more than one picture per post.

Well, it wasn't anyone from this forum. It was from the petbugs.com days. (or at least when I used to post there....a long time ago) I have long since cleaned my e-mail and his addy is ancient history.
Like I mentioned though, I will only ever send a male again to someone with references and/or someone I know and trust.
I like your idea for breeder reviews a lot John.

Yeah I remember you posting at petbugs.com. I still look around there a little, but it isn't as active as it used to be.

I always think of Elvis when a T rears up like that... Like its saying "Hail to the king babe!"

or, as they rear up "Hey.. ohhh.. grrrr......i'm gonna bite you.. WAIT, LOOK OVER THERE!" and as you turn around to see what your T is talking about, they book it like hell far, far... FAR away


i dont find them aggressive, i find them very defensive. But they're amazing T's to have!

riiiiight :)
peace

Here is Scary, my favorite OBT. I am pretty sure Scary is an immature male.



Here is my adult pair breeding.

I couldn't let this thread get away....:)

I had to try and get a picture of one of my "Usambara"
slings, you guys know I have 3:)
I know, I'm NUTS, I do not need to be reminded!;P

Anyway, it's not a great pic, but here it is.
I can't wait to get my REAL camera, stupid back orders! GRRR!

You can't tell from the picture, but this T is orange, not brown.

Sin, how many slings are there in that picture?

Hi mate, there are a few good ones - best bet is to get your butt down to Birmingham this Sunday, it's the annual British Tarantula Society show.
