L klugi was my second tarantula. They're wonderful. While not really moisture dependent, they appreciate some frog moss kept moist and will frequently spend a lot of time on it out in the open as they get bigger.
Take lots of pictures.
C versicolor is an excellent first arboreal. There is a lot of disinformation out there about these. They are a DRY spider & it's wise to get a humidity gauge to ensure it does NOT go over 70% or so. The cage needs to be well ventilated, but there is nothing special about cross ventilation. The...
I have all 4 of my pokies in ReptiZoo cages. Pokies run in a spiral dance type of pattern. Anything that opens up to the side will probably result in escape after escape. The top opening plus the feeding port is perfect for these guys. The only other thing you need is a long thin funnel to...
Oh, & the three dream tarantulas, almost forgot those.
1. P subfusca highland form
2. P ornata
3. Xenethesis sp blue
I'm in MD, a smaller state, probably no way I'll ever get the first two since those are in state sale only. I'm glad I got a pair of P vittata before the ban.
I'd put up a YouTube video of myself howling in protest but that wouldn't work I'm afraid.
If I was a more wrathful person or had more time on my hands, I'd cross breed one of their new-fangled T whatevers with something still considered a bracky. T (formerly B) vagens can breed successfully...
Nope, avics and former avics sometimes won't go to ground to drink. This can cause dangerous dehydration. An elevated water dish prevents this from becoming a problem. In nature, they probably drink from puddles on trees in the leaves or something similar.
There is a method to my madness.
The problem with sterilization is that it can interfere with bioactive enclosures.
The other issue is that while it might kill hostile life forms, it won't destroy harmful chemicals such as herbicides or pesticides or industrial chemicals.
If the temperature is too high and actually chars the...
If anyone else posted this, I'd call them insane.
This stuff is supposed to have anti seizure properties as well as a zillion things.
I'd like to see this repeated for other species maybe a dozen times or so.
There could be a sex ratio other then 50/50. There's a lot we don't know about them.
Pure speculation: Since the females eat the males, you might as a species have too generate more males to balance it out.
Regardless of sex, they're worth every penny. With a small sling, you'll have it for at...
H pulchripes is just a wonderful T. Mine wasn't at all a mean spider.
The only potential trouble area is their speed. They can really teleport.
I think that they're an excellent first OW. Also look into M balfouri as well, which can be kept in a communal of you're up to that.
My H pulchripes...
