    For a couple weeks I've been looking for a colorful, preferably BIG terrestrial to add to my tiny collection. A. geniculata was on my short list, so when I saw a 5" female for sale, I couldn't resist. She arrived today and she is a beauty.

    Pics!

    Showing off those famous white knees :D

    She is settling in really quickly and I actually already fed her because she seemed hungry... She actually tried to eat the wet paper towel from her packaging as I was pulling it out of the enclosure!

    Congrats Jackys! A beautiful spider--and a lot of fun too. That one is not likely to "lock the bathroom door" on you. She seems a little underfed--you'll have a great time fattening her up. I am jealous. Please offer us more pics when available.:D:D

    Thanks! I actually got a ton of feeders in anticipation of her arrival, especially since I heard these guys LOVE to eat lol. There will be more pics for sure ;)
