This confuses me. I definitely agree with '2) Never, ever allow the tarantulas' primary cages or containers to come into direct contact with the heat source! Actually, "not even close" would be an even better rule.'
However I can't bring myself to not worry about temperature at all. I can...
I know these pictures aren't great but it's the best I can do at the moment. Misty has decided to bury her moult right at the bottom of her burrow so I have no hope of getting it :P The question is, is Misty a male? ;) Any predictions based on these photos are welcome if possible.
Beautiful tarantula :) I am not experienced enough to answer the questions but I did think it was one cambridgei looking Goliath! :P
Thank you very much for sorting her out @Jdcuppycake2020! Sounds like you are on the right track, Your bf really didn't do his research :/
Thanks so much for this idea! :) I hadn't actually come across it before. For my slings I first used pill capsule holder things but then they leaked. So I got some of the below micro bowls but after a while they would seem to leak too, or soak the water up or something, maybe due to the resin...
The Spider Shop also have this covered on their FAQ page ahaha ;)
I love too that they have Operation Racoon as a delivery option, presumably for if you have the above problem. Your partner might start getting suspicious if you 'win' too many spider competitions though... :P
I have recently got a Heteropoda javana named Lorax. However I cannot find much information online on how to care for them, beyond the species info on the Spider Shop website.
In particular I wondered whether it is advisable to give true spiders of this size a water dish? Her leg-span is...
Thanks very much for sharing your experiences! I have no plan to breed or swap but I found it interesting to read anyway. I am sorry to hear about the second experience :( I don't think you are in the wrong. It should not have been listed as captive bred if it was wild caught :(
That is a great price for the plants. Maybe some of the non-webber terrestrials don't care, but I personally feel those who do lots of webbing and could do with anchor points do care! :P They can also make good hiding places.
Thanks for this, will check out the-range! :)
I got some from the pound shop, gave them rinse and dry before putting them in. They only had a few remains of white fake flowers from the summer season, so I also got some red flowers from the Christmas section :) >
I am wanting to get a sub-adult Avicularia avicularia. Seeing as they need good cross-ventilation, I wondered what type of enclosure is best. The following are my two options so far (I have found it very hard to find an enclosure that is both front opening and has plenty of...
You can't see much of her yet but my Tlitocatl albopilosus Misty moulted today for the second time since I got her :) (she was my first T.). I have taken these pics through the plastic by the way; she's made a window in her burrow so I can see in. In the first pic her new body is on the right...
I do have a Cyriocosmus elegans sling, not quite as small as that but she was about 5mm when she arrived. I have learned to accept the anxiety of sling enclosures looking empty :P I meant more when a larger tarantula keeps disappearing - that is extra disconcerting lol.
Now my Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens sling, Sonic, has lost a leg. I have circled the leg hanging in the web, on the third pic. I have had him for 6 weeks and haven't noticed him moulting. He rarely moves from this area of the enclosure and doesn't bolt so it is usually quite easy to poke...
