    US Casey K's Tarantulas Review

    It is but actually they're eating just fine & stay in the corkbark. I had fun rehousing pokies before and I think they're doing great in the corkbark, which is basically the actual cage. I wouldn't just throw them in a cage like that with no actual smaller space.

    How did you get into the hobby?

    Latest Ts, 2 P metallica slings once payment details are worked out. Best of all, I found a cage that I forgot I had!! That means only 1 to decontaminate. This means that there is a third cage..... Hmmmmmm H mac? OBT? Singapore blue? P irminia? P pulcher? or maybe go [email protected]$ to the wall and...

    How did you get into the hobby?

    My very first invert was H spinifer, a scorpion. First T was C versicolor. He lived a long life. After eating some crickets, he molted suddenly and then became unable to climb the glass. Assuming he was dehydrated, I placed him into the water dish immediately. He had difficulty leaving it and...

    Pokie with a bit more humidity tolerance?

    I just remember seeing some footage of them escaping from side opening doors during feeding or rehousing, can't remember who though. Mine always run in horizontal spirals when they decide to rock and roll. Still, the side opening cages can be more convenient in some ways.

    US Poecilotheria and more on sale

    I'm not a seller & my critters aren't for sale. If funds are a serious problem, consider B vagans as a larger sling or small juvenile. They don't look as awesome as a GBB but the red and black coloration is awesome. They were Saturday evening the most affordable Ts totally under rated. They...

    Pokie with a bit more humidity tolerance?

    Actually you will. They tend to besplatter the glass

    US Poecilotheria and more on sale

    Reach out to Casey K it Jamie's tarantulas and see if you can work something out. I can't guarantee anything but they both are great to buy from. Don't forget that you also need a cage, substrate, water dish etc as well as the tarantula itself

    Pokie with a bit more humidity tolerance?

    That cage is practically perfect. Just don't remove the top when you feed them. Open it up slightly. Use the smallest opening possible. With a bonded screen, you can refill the water dish without opening the cage.

    Pokie with a bit more humidity tolerance?

    They require slightly more humidity then a dry spider like a curly hair for example. The best thing to do is to look up the humidity where they live and at the correct altitude. The slings especially should be kept with a wee bit of extra humidity. This applies to all of them. Always have a...

    New to the forums and the hobby.

    I wasn't discussing mature males. My M balfouri female showed the clear blue and white color scheme while still a sling. Yes when my male H pulchripes matured, he changed, but for 90% of his life, he had the same exact coloration as the female. The mature males are a special case.

    New to the forums and the hobby.

    M balfouri & H pulchripes are very beautiful species. I've had one of each. Neither is a mean spider, just super fast. M balfouri is perhaps the only species that benefits from being kept communally. In no other case should any other species be kept that way. The slings are a little pricey...

    Emergency T stirmi rehousing

    I'm just glad everyone is ok. Nyx the cat once again is visiting me and the girlfriend in bed, as well as pestering me in the bathroom. I had plastic over the screen to hold in humidity. The hole was under that and not noticable unless you saw her getting out. Judging on the bite I got from...

    Emergency T stirmi rehousing

    When I was at repticon, one vender had the biggest centipedes I've ever seen in my life, each in their very own Terra blue cage. That's one reason I like that brand so much. If those can't beat the cage, I doubt a tarantula can do so.

    Emergency T stirmi rehousing

    She can't. The Terra blue cage is much more study, built like a tank. Actually, she dug herself in, blocking the entrance by the water dish and expanded the other one. The cage is intended for so called "hot" animals by which I mean lethal venom safely. The Terra blue cage is like the Exo...
