Good luck with the water dish and the N. incei. That probably will be completely webbed up in about a month or so. That is assuming it's not full of dirt / poop / bolus beforehand. :cool:
And circular container for the H. longipes is a great idea. It likes to run in circle when spooked. Any sort of rectangular stuff would mean a lot of chasing it with a catch cup LOL.

Thank you for your comments.Its a standart setup to put dish in for me if I can fit one.Once she webs will go for smaller (milk cap ) dish on the web or water on the web itself if needed.:T:

Hi all
Another new addition from last week.
Juvenile female Davus pentaloris.
Unfortunately the tarantula got damaged in transit and was bleeding in the area between the carapace and the abdomen(see pics below) when I receivedit.I applied cornflour on the spot and let it be till evening when I repeated the application.
That did stop the bleeding.The tarantula was behaving normally and put web down in the first 5 hours of rehousing.She shook off the excess cornflour and sealed itself in the burrow the day after and still acting normally all stretched out nicely now .Feeling positive she will make it but Im aware she is not out of the woods till she moults successfully. She refused food today but that doesn't mean anything atm.
I have contacted the seller immediately , still feeding him with regular updates and have a replacement waiting if the worst happens but hope she will make it through as she is a beautiful lady.
Few pics below

Hi all
A little update on the damaged in transit Davus pentaloris mentioned above.
She has been sealed in all the time.I had suspicion she moulted about 2 weeks ago but couldn't see moult trough the silk on the entrance of her burrow.
Yesterday I put a cricket in and she took it in though the silk.Today she is out and about and can see her old exoskeleton on bottom of her burrow.I think she is now out of danger.
Also new arrivals today.
I was after some Cyriocosmus elegance slings and while looking for them I found temporary deal on
Dolichothele diamantinensis being sold 50% off their price.
I ended up getting 5 of each species.
The Cyriocosmus elegance are as expected microscopic .Below pic of the biggest one

The D diamantinensis for my surprise came at very good size between 1- 1.5cm DLS
Speedy little buggers.I may have to put them in sth bigger as have feeling they will be escape artists.
