    Since I got myself a P formosa I fell in love with pokies so I ordered four slings from spidersworld.eu
    The pokies were shipped on Monday, and arrived to Croatia today morning.
    Since it took them almost 5 days to arrive I was worried that they might not all arrive in perfect shape but I was wrong :) the pokies are more than fine and looking lovely.
    No trouble transferring them, they all behaved very well, real sweeties.

    @Shampain told me to get a formosa when I was in doubt which one to get so he is to blame for my new addiction :D

    I don't want to sound like an old man, but be careful Marija. I had a versicolor sling bite me twice. It itched. If one of those little pokies bites you, its not gonna itch..lol. They're probably a little stunned by being in the mail for five days, hence the easy handling and transfers...Once they settle and build web tunnels though..careful;)

    Totally understandable. I just bought my second adult female T stirmi from @Metalman2004 and handled her out of the box. True, she's new world, but a bite would not have been pleasant. I just..had to. Then he sent me a pic of her throwing a threat pose, lmao.

    I would probaby handled the T stirmi also :D but the fangs on those are huge. I know I shouldn't handle my Ts but I love the feeling of it, starting to think it has become a fetish lol

    There is something about them, yes. I didn't think there was something special about them until I got one :)
    Get yourself an ornata, you won't be sorry
