Sorry not the best quality picture as i am using my phone and she webbed the **** out of her enclosure lol She was moving around her enclosure for a bit and she looks great. Really happy with this one. Some of you may or may not remember that I nearly lost this T...

    Who's molted today

    My Cyriocosmus Aueri molted today. Was so tiny when I got her. She's molted 4 times in my care already (in about 6 months). Unsexed just wishful thinking again. Anyone experienced with this species and know how quick they grow? I heard the males grow and mature fairly quickly compared to some...

    C. Darlingi enclosure

    Hey guys :) Anyone here ever had a C. Darlingi that used a hide? Ok so I am setting up a new enclosure for my c. Darlingi 'darla' and am contemplating putting in some cork bark for a hide. Not sure if it will get used or burrow elsewhere. I know that T's will do theyre own thing however I...

    Heating my Aphonopelma chalcodes

    Ive heard this one too. I would think this would be a safe alternative as it gives of very little heat. @Zannee2000 I should mention my cabinet is open at the back so there is always a little air being circulated through to the enclosures and preventing the area from over heating. Also the...

    Heating a tarantula

    Thanks guys :) I'll keep the heat pad where its at and away from the enclosures. As far as my albo goes i will leave the next feed until after she molts. Shes always got a full water dish. Unsexed by the way.. Just wishful thinking in saying she :)

    Heating a tarantula

    I keep my house around 68°.. I live with two other people and this is the agreed upon acceptable house temperature lol. I live in the pacific Northwest so it does get fairly cold in the winter. At the moment it drops below 60° if my heat is not on. So i bought a small heat pad and have placed it...

    A few questions about Tarantula's

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll look into getting a smaller enclosure. I will have to order it online as they dont sell them at any of the shops near me. The exo terra nano is the smallest i could find. My T is in premolt so I may wait until its molted and hardened before i rehouse. Im not sure...

    A few questions about Tarantula's

    My B. Albo did the same thing after just a week of refusing food then just last night I found it wandering around the enclosure. It gladly took a small dubia roach. My albo is about 1.5" - 2" and feeds like there is no tomorrow. In fact its a little on the heavy side so may have to skip another...
