    C versicolor care

    This is how I setup my Versicolor's enclosure. An AMAC box upside down. She spends all her time up at the top and webs it all up but since it opens at the bottom I can get in there to feed and water without destroying its web castle. Learned this trick from one of @Arachnoclown 's posts.

    B. boehmei - may be male

    This sling is just over a year old. DLS is approximately 1.5" I guess it might be a little young to say for sure but looking at this photo I don't see anything at all to make me think it could be female. I think this one is likely a male. Do those of you with more experience concur?

    Keeper Cards Kickstarter

    Came across this kick starter. The cards look fantastic. I decided to get a set for my daughter. She loves this kind of stuff. Figure I'd share it here too in case anyone else could be interested in a spider related gift for one's self or a loved one. Link: Keeper Cards Kickstarter

    Slings grabbing a meal.

    Managed to catch my Vagans and Versicolor grabbing a meal on video. Rarely get to see the Vagans since she spends all her time deep in her maze of tunnels. (no sound on either video)

    GBB big enough to be intimidating

    He is still a juvie but has gotten quite big. At times me moves so fast its hard to track with the naked eye. When a spider this big moves that fast it is a bit intimidating. Makes me realize I am no where near ready for a pokie... yet...

    Who's molted today

    This little blueberry gave me a surprise molt. Was chillin' in its web like normal in the am. When I looked again in the evening there was a second shadow in web tunnel. Then shortly later she came out to show off the new duds.

    Feeling cute. Might bolt later....

    Had to swap out mold substrate for my daughter's fireleg. Added some more ventilation holes while I was at it in hopes of avoiding the problem again. Took the opportunity to get a nice shot of her.

    My daughter's new Brachy. This one really likes to dig.
  14. Is that structurally sound?

    Is that structurally sound?

    This little Vagans loves to dig but I am worried if she excavates much more from the bottom of this enclosure the entire mass of coco fiber is going to collapse on top of her.

    Rehoused GBB and now it's shy

    My GBB did something similar once. It was almost 4 months before he came out again. I just let him be. A spider do what a spider do...

    Who's molted today

    All done now. And it looks like we went from "suspected male" to "confirmed male" judging by this picture....
