    Costa Rican Zebra enclosure

    Buckeye, our affectionately and poorly named A. Seemani got her permanent upgrade today. It's somewhat western themed, because even though we're planning on adding a red knee and an arizona blond i couldnt wait to do a western theme haha

    Favorite Arboreal t's?

    I’m definitely adding Caribena versicolor to my list- they are gorgeous! Thank you all for the recs, my local shop happened to have a P. Irminia in stock, so I added one to the adult enclosure! She’s a little small for it, but I’m hoping she’ll be okay, as far as I’ve read this is not a t you...

    Favorite Arboreal t's?

    I have a fairly large exo terra that I had originally purchased for my pokie, but since she's got a ways to grow I think I'd rather put another t in it! So my question is what are your favorite arboreal species and why? Preferably mid level keeping...

    Finally got a pokie!!

    Black paper, I'll definitely put some up! I did end up getting a cork tube, she hasn't used it yet. She freshly molted and hasnt taken any food for a few days, should I be worried? Maybe shes just picky and doesnt like dubias?

    Finally got a pokie!!

    i ended up putting her in a nano exoterra (i think the 8×8×12) for now, just to get her out of her cup and view her better. She seems to enjoying it! I was really apprehensive but she's gorgeous already (hope its a she!). She hasn't noticed her giant cork tube yet haha

    Finally got a pokie!!

    Oh yeah, i thought they would run UP rather than out, but I'm certainly mistaken! I may just invest in an 18×18×12 exoterra then, and modify the top to have a little hatch instead of the whole thing popping off. I think a round cork bark would be best, but I also want to see them once in a...

    Finally got a pokie!!

    I took the plunge today and got a p. vittata, mostly by chance. I wasn’t planning on getting one for a while ( I was actually looking for a sun tiger on the rec of some more experienced keepers) when I found a 2" vittata for less than 80 at a reptile show, and I couldn’t say no (they’re banning...

    WTH is my T doing?

    That does raise another question- he matured almost 9 months ago. Even though he's presumably sperm webbing (is there a way to tell?) Is he still breed-able, or is he too old?

    WTH is my T doing?

    Thanks for the reply everyone! I guess I didn't think it was sperm webbing partly cuz hes already been paired, and he's an older guy so i thought his spicy days were behind him lol! Gotta find him a gf

    WTH is my T doing?

    Hey all, I would post a pic but its not working, but my MM has been webbing all day, and then he slipped under his webbing, flipped upsidedown and wiggled, then came back out and webbed some more? I dont think hes making sperm webs, but it was definitely terrifying. Sort of like the stomach...

    Grammostola Pulchra MM

    Thanks, i wasn't sure. I thought I'd give it a try, but if he's too old than i much rather enjoy his last few months! Is there a masterlist somewhere on the forum though, about breeding contracts if i ever raised my own pair?

    Grammostola Pulchra MM

    I'm not sure, he's coming in tomorrow. I've heard g. pulchra live fairly long after final molts, should I really get him out ASAP? I already have an interested party when he arrives.

    Grammostola Pulchra MM

    Hi, I'm looking to pair my MM g pulchra, hopefully with an experienced hobbyist. He's been paired once before I owned him, he matured about a year ago. I'm looking for model contracts, general advice (what if he gets eaten), etc.

    What are your dream tarantulas so far?

    Megaphobema mesomela (I THINK is how you spell it) is a new one, and almost any pokie...one day. Thats a great list!

    I finally got my first "T"!

    Congrats! My first T was also a curly. She takes dubias regularly, I only supplement crickets or worms. She's not picky. Love to see another curly as a starter :D

    Moving on from beginner species?

    I have a heart condition, so I may hold off on OW for now until I’m more experienced. I didn’t realize their venom was so potent !!
