I’m visiting my mum next week, their local pet shop had a female p.regalis and a female boehmei for sale, so they got snapped up on my behalf.
My step-dad rang me in a panic last night … “your spider is on its back!” :D

Woke up to my new p.regalis in her hammock.
Been sold as a female so interested in getting my hands on the molt. I think I caught a glance of emboli this morning but I was running off to an invert show so couldn’t look too closely.
Welp. My quick glance was correct.
I've had him 3 days and hes matured lol. Seller has refunded me so all good there.
I wanted a female for when my young male matured lol

Second T in as many days. It has been a while for them. Here is my G. rosea ( apparantly as of fairly recently G. porteri is being considered junior synonymous to G. rosea, which I take to mean that in the wild they are considered the same) captive ones, who knows...

"At present a formal diagnosis for G. porteri is not available in the literature, but no differences are found when comparing the type of G. porteri with G rosea neotype, so we consider G. porteri a junior synonym of G. rosea."
Cut and pasted from a section of

My largest LP has just molted again & its molt is around 8.5 inches. The molt is fresh, but a little brittle, so I could not get an exact measurement. But certainly 8.5 inches & probably a fraction over that.
