    Who's molted today

    Finally managed to get a couple of shots of Lupus, my Nhandu Coloratovillosus, 1 week post molt. Those colours are really starting to pop now. I tried to take the lid off the enclosure, but it was going to bolt if I went any further. All I know is someone's going to need a rehouse before their...

    It's official, I'm an addict!

    Thanks, great photo. Looks like I’ve got a while before mine gets anywhere near that size then. I got mine in a sling pot with about 1 inch of substrate, and I dug a little starter burrow in one side just in case, but it hasn’t used it yet. For water, I just moistened one part of the substrate...

    Who's molted today

    Finally managed to get to pictures of my C.Versicolor that molted recently. It came out the other night and actually posed for the camera. And I have to say, I'm in love. I can't get over how beautiful it is.

    It's official, I'm an addict!

    Don't judge me, I couldn't help myself! I saw these beauties for sale on the So Many Legs website & I just had to have them. Luckily, I don't live a million miles away from them and I offered to pick them up because of the bad weather recently. Andy Ormes is a really nice guy, and it was a...

    removing a molt

    Good news, I've managed to get the molt out without disturbing the T too much. I made a small cut at the base of the web where the leaves overlap while the spider was up top & managed to grab the molt with tongs and pulled it out. Unfortunately I cant sex it this time as the abdomen was a bit of...

    removing a molt

    I never thought of it that way, it's not such a bad thing after all. Thanks

    removing a molt

    Thanks @Enn49. As with most things it won’t be that simple. The only way to get in with tongs is to go in through the side of the plant, between the leaves and damaging the web. I’ll see what happens in the next few days & take it from there

    removing a molt

    I have a strange question. My C.Versicolor has molted, so obviously I want to get a look at it to see if I can sex it. The problem I have is that it has molted inside the same bromeliad it has also built it's home in (see the picture). I don't want to destroy the web if I can help it, so here's...

    U.K. Phil - The Spider House

    I agree with you. I bought 3 sling from Phil last year too and I couldn't be happier with them. Great guy who takes the utmost care with his T's. Packed more carefully than I've seen from shops and perfectly healthy on arrival.

    New T For the ever growing zoo

    Sorry guys, don't know what happened with the photos. Could be because I tried to upload them from my phone. Try these

    New T For the ever growing zoo

    So pleased, managed to find a Euathlus sp Red over the weekend for £20. It's about 2.5 - 3 inches in size & a suspected female. Guess I’ll find that out for sure after it’s next molt, but fingers crossed. so docile it’s not true, walks out onto you hands every time you open the enclosure, no...

    Is my tarantula going into premolt?

    @Enn49 , @Arachnoclown Thanks guys. You know what it's like when you're a noob :confused: Any question you ask seems daft, but without asking you'll never learn.

    Is my tarantula going into premolt?

    I'm new to tarantula keeping, so this might seem like a pretty stupid question to more experienced keepers, but can someone tell me if my Caribena Versicolor is going into premolt? It normally hangs out at the top of it's web tunnel (especially at night), but for the last few days it's...

    Lateralis Roaches

    Can anyone tell me where is the best place in the UK to buy Lateralis (Turkistan) roaches? I want to feed these as well as crickets to my T's

    That was really interesting. And quite funny. "I spied a monkey, a spider monkey" :rolleyes:

    Enclosure designs & ideas

    Hi, this is kind of similar to my C.Versicolor setup. It’s only a 2.5 inch sling at the moment, but it’s decided to take up residence in the bromeliad for the time being & made a web tunnel all the way down to the base of the plant.

    DIY - Enclosures of your own design

    Hi, just thought I'd post a few pictures of my arboreal enclosures. For the tiny slings, I've kept it simple, just a piece of cork bark and a small succulent plant in an upturned Ferrero Rocher pot, hinged at the front (Dark Den style). But for my 3 inch Caribena Versicolor I have an enclosure...

    U.K. Phil - The Spider House

    I'm new to Tarantulas, having only started keeping them since going to the Southern Invert Show in Brighton this November, and I wanted to write this review as I think there isn't enough credit or recognition given to independent breeders in the UK. I Bought my first T in Brighton, a beautiful...
