I swear this is a trick of the camera.. he's just feeling around.. I posted it to show the way the camera catches the iridescence of the foot pads sometimes.

We all love a versicolor :)

We need photos like this since once you actually have one the only way you get to see that metallic blue on the wee ones is go destroy their web and chase them out of it. I know the two sets of photos I posted of mine are the only two times since I got it that I've gotten a good look at it.

Yeah Chip, that was the case today, had to tear up the web... I didn't feel bad about it, since he got these posh new living conditions out of the deal..

They never fail to be BEAUTIFUL! I've not seen a bad pic of a versicolor

I'm getting my 1.5cm A. versicolor this week. I am TOO excited, I just can't wait. They have to be one of my favourite T's, and arboreal too... it can only be a bonus!

You think so? I regularly see spiderlings for 20-30 dollars on lists. While I like getting Juveniles myself the best, this is one species I would definately want to have from a spiderling. You don't want to miss them going from neon blue to purple and red, do you?

They're very affordable in my experience as well. They must not be any harder to breed than regular pinktoes and their demand guarantees that almost every vendor has them in stock nearly 12 months out of the year. I've seen them listed for as low as $18, and the highwater mark I've seen was only $35.

Even at 1/2 inch, my versicolor is quickly becoming my favorite spider. It is docile as can be. And who can't resist it's charm while it walks!

PS - How large is your versicolor Bill?

Wow they're quite expensive in the US. I've managed to get my sling for £9 which I think is a bit cheaper than $18. Suprising! I would have thought that T's in the UK would be more expensive.
