    Two of the four new family members arrived today :T: They are tiny, adorable and so far it seems that they are in a good condition after the trip from spidershop.pl, Poland

    I love them. Feel free to bring them here to America if you get tired of them. I'll give them a good home. :)

    Had to wait the Pokies because the post actually sent a trolley of packages to the wrong suburb in my hometown o_O But today was the day! I have two adorable Pokie kids in my family, thanks to spidersworld.eu

    Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli - Being an adorable bundle of stress at the moment, but hopefully settles down soon

    Then there is Poecilotheria vittata who already demonstrated the famous teleportation techniques. It ended up having a refreshing sprint from my arm to the chair via my lap, thigh, knee and back :rolleyes: Now chilling in the enclosure.

    In the end it was fun but oh dear god I was terrified to lose the vittata right away ;)
    The monologue in my head went like "Hi there, do you want to finally get o---- GAH! (actually shrieked a bit, haha!) no, no, no... Do not... No. Ok, breathe, the faster you move the more it gets spooked. Ok. It sits there for now. Do not bolt again aaaaand there." :D

    @Nunua A lesson learned. Ts tend to run for short distances and then stop so if you can keep still they can be caught fairly quickly, not easy when you panic though :)
