I was down to 7 small slings.

Having rehoused a few of my slings over the past couple of months into larger enclosures. I was down to just 7 small slings & then I spotted an advert on preowned yesterday evening. Someone very local to me was selling 2 X T albopilosus, (Nigerian,) slings. 1 X Lasiodora striatipes sling 1 X Lasiodora difficilis sling & I X LP juvie, all for £20.

So now I am back up to 11 small slings again:)

Chatting on the doorstep, I found the person selling the T's was interested in getting some hissing roaches & some Bean weevils. So I have now offered her a colony of Bean Weevils (free) & will sell her some cheap Hissers too. It seems only fair after the great bargain she gave me.

Oh & I did not realise that Brachypelma albopilosum, had become Tliltocatl albopilosus. I thought it was a simple swap of Brachypelma fot Tiltocatl. So now I need to rename my already renamed Tliltocatl albopilosum.

Wow that really was a great deal!! Hard to come by deals like that here. It was very kind of you to give her the weevils free. :)

Sort of, yes. It takes so little time to feed & care for slings that, it was taking more time getting sorted or clearing up. Plus more mealworms get used with more than 7 slings & thus fewer get wasted.
