    White Mark on Acanthoscurria Geniculata Kiwi Butt?

    There seems to be some white marking on my Acanthoscurria Geniculata's butt. Is this something to be concerned about? Or is it an early sign of pre-molt? Sorry if the photos aren't too clear - my iPhone always blurs the picture if I'm up close for some ridiculous reason.

    Acanthoscurria Geniculata Buried for a long time!

    Hey legends, So I collected my juvenile Geniculata on the 20th December. She moved into her new home, had a good wander about, then buried herself completely under a root. She is still there with no signs of movement. I'm getting worried now. How long do I leave her? Should I try to peek in...

    Amateur Macro Shots - Acanthoscurria geniculata slings

    Threw the cheap macro lens adaptor on my phone and took a few photos of my whiteknee slings. Quite a short focal range on it. Planning to do some focus stacking in the future to try and capture all of the deltails. Need to invest in a macro lens for my DSLR now that I have something tiny to...

    Acanthoscurria geniculata slings in their new pots

    Just transferred my Whiteknee slings to a new pot (bit early but wanted to see them clearer without disturbing them) and thought I'd take a couple shots. They're invert viewing pots, so have a magnifying lid, which is quite nice for seeing all their little details. They're out of direct light...
