I see you "Sapphie"

I see you "Sapphie"

At last.....managed to shoot her before she scurried back into her hide. Humans 1 Tarantulas 0 (for today at least....lol)
@rénee thank you. She is a sunned when she decides to be seen. My fault really the enclosure has loads of wood, leaves and hides etc to look natural but you pay for it by not seeing this little darling as often as you would want to.
Has to be absolutely one of the most beautiful T colorations I've ever seen. Great pic, thanks for sharing! :)
@SasyStace thank you for your comment. It's great to get positive feedback and this seems to be the right forum for it. Unlike other forums. Thanks again.
Wow! That is a brilliant looking Gooty Sapphire Ornamental! I've always wanted one of those!
@SikmT7 thank you. Unfortunately a couple of months after that photo, she ruptured her abdomen (don't know how) and despite intensive treatment of super glue (does not work despite what others say) and corn flour, she passed away in February. I have 2 more juveniles I am now growing up that will hopefully be as stunning as what Sapphie was.
@Phil Aw man I am so sorry to hear that. I have had 1 or 2 pass away on me years back, sometimes no matter how much experience we have and how much care we give them, they could still slip away from us. But I am so glad to hear that you bringing up 2 little saphs and I will pray that they both grow into extraordinary sapphires just like Sapphie!
@SikmT7 thank you so much, lovely words. Just checked on my 2 sapphires and o e has just moulted today so must have been your support ☺
