That is all for now. Missing is Brachypelma vagans, which is before molt, hidden, Haplopelma minax also hidden, and Brachypelma ruhnaui still too dull to be interesting.

Let me now if the images load quickly and properly, some problems were reported with this hosting..

no, they don't :) just standard stuff, crickets, roaches, locusts, occassionally Pachnoda larvae.. I was thinking about using cheap spiderlings such as B.albopilosum sometimes, but I'm afraid what effect the urticating hair might have on the gecko's digestive system..

and actually, the subfusca isn't exactly huge yet, it's just a grown spiderling, 6th molt, IIRC. bought her in 1st molt in May 04.

Beutiful tarantulas (especially the pokie and the GBB) :cool: you're so lucky to have a subfusca.

Another beautiful thing you have is your country! I was visiting it a while ago and loved it there, sorry I noticed your location hehe.

Alias
07-06-2005, 12:42 PM
oh, thank you so much :) Scotland must be also a beautiful country.

getting the subfusca was not a matter of much luck, here in Prague lives a breeder, Mr.Šejna, who has (afaik) a third subfusca eggsack already.. however, the price (1000czk=22 british pounds), though definitely fair for such a spider, made me hesitate. as you can see, all my other spiders are from the cheaper side :rolleyes:

ok, I took two better photos. strange, the Poec is not nervous at all, just stubborn. hard to force her out of her nest.

Cripes! Over here you'd likely pay £50 for a spiderling! Maybe I should go back to Ceske Budejovice to buy some spiders then I'd have a perfect excuse for going back hehe! :wicked:

how much time had passed till u mated P.irimia?

Aaron

she was mated April 1. the problem is in a poor enclosure design, she lives in such a half-buried hollow cork branch, I cannot check the inside unless I dig everything up, which would mean a big stress for the female, in case she already has the eggsack, or is just creating it. I rather wait and let her be, she should have all the silence and moisture she needs..the worst thing which could happen, is that I will have to collect hundred little irminias around the terrarium :rolleyes:

Avicularia metallica, the same as above in this thread, after molt. after those 16 months since the last molt, the hair on legs and carapace was so rubbed off, that the shed skin is almost transparent. it was so long that I thought he is going to die. instead, surprise, an adult male {D tommorow he is leaving to see some ladies ;)

It's really amazing how much different the A. metallica looks post molt. But, I guess that's what 18 months will do. :O

Great pics and awesome collection. Thanks for posting.

Thank you. some photos are better, some are worse, I am not a skilled photographer at all, so its all about trial and error :)

here is a freshly molted B.vagans, young adult female. the fresh velvet black is amazing, this is one underestimated Brachypelma species.

how fast did yours grow ? and when did the colour morph start ????....Thats one huge subfucia !!!! Good lookin T's Man !!! :clap: :clap:

this one was bought in 1st molt 20.9.2003. following molts were:

12.10.03
15.11.03
22.12.03
10.2.04
23.4.04
10.7.04
4.11.04
28.4.05

as for the coloration, as far as I remember, real significant change happened between 5th and 6th molt. I think.

even today you can still see the rest of "child" coloration, especially the pattern on the abdomen. I hope for the full adult coloration with next molt.
