    New youngsters arrived yesterday and as you can see, they weren't too keen to introduce themselves. So say hello to two Tapinauchenius rasti (formerly Tapinauchenius sp. Caribbean Diamond) teens! Today they're both happy and hiding! :cool:

    New arrival

    A new member of the family, a young Poecilotheria sp. "lowland" girl arrived on Wednesday. I named her Avanthi, s Sinhala girl name meaning princess. Sinhalese is an ethnic group native to Sri Lanka where the species originates from. Why princess? Just because she lazily crawled out from the...

    Molt sadly gone wrong in a weird way

    I sadly lost Anki, my Sericopelma angustum juvie, today :( It was a series of unfortunate events.. In the photo Anki's already dead, pretty much fully stuck in the old exoskeleton. So what happened is that he started molting in a very tricky position: Almost like "sitting" vertically on its...

    A few rehouses

    I thought it was time to rehouse three tarantulas, even though they'd be absolutely fine for a molt or two in their previous enclosures. However, since two of them are old worlds and one mostly annoyed new world, I decided to give them plenty space to do their things without me needing to...

    Nunua's enclosures

    Ok, so far most of my enclosures are just plastic deli cups or freezer boxes but I may add some photos of them later on. However, here's ExoTerra Nano Tall (20x20x30 cm / 8x8x12 in) I decorated for my C. versicolor, Sreaky :) It's simple with just a silk plant, plastic aquarium decoration "log"...

    C. versicolor ventral shot (molt conf. female)

    Hi guys! I know that versi can be pain in the butt to sex ventrally, but I'll try my luck :D This little juvie has a DLS of around 7 cm and the molt was so tightly webbed that I wasn't able to save it - Maybe next time. It just got its first post-molt meal so the abdomen is relatively thin and...

    Today's task: Rehousing Pterinochilus spp. ✔

    Today is the day I'm going to rehouse my speedy kids, Pterinochilus lapalala and Pterinochilus murinus Mikumi DCF.

    Weird post molt posture(s)

    So, I was talking about this with @Enn49 around two months ago when my P. tigrinawesseli molted, and since it the same phenomenon happened again after the most recent molt I'm just curious if someone else has had similar experiences. I'm not freaking out this time because she has been perfectly...

    A sad day in my little T family... I don't know what happened, but I just found my tiny C. elegans sling (DLS max 0.5 cm) in a death curl. I got worried because there was no movement in its small vial, after all it was an active sling... I was thinking that it has buried in the middle of the...

    N. incei only webs one corner

    So yeah, as some of you know I got my N. incei gold from a pet store in March. She was living in a medium sized Critter Keeper and actually had a pretty nice web tunnel around a fake plant. I first put her in a 20x20x20 cm exoterra with quite a nice amount of substrate to burrow in and a cork...
