Alrighty, I'm pretty sure some of you might be able to relate to me here. I bought an LP, whom I named River, a year ago. Back then it was about a fingernail in legspan. Now it's pretty much a long fingernail in legspan. It's only grown about half of its original size in a year, and it's an LP....
So this is not an appeal to the T's most natural environment, but more an issue for display lighting.
I want to prominently display my T's so that can experience their best color when they are out. I have enclosures basically like tarantulacages.com for my group, and I plan to light them with...
Forgive me for stupid questions, but I do have a predator cat and some large dogs in my house as I contemplate adding a T to our family.
I'm looking at a Chaco, which I know is a terrestrial new world species. I have a 10 gallon tank-no problems there, but are the substrates "heavy"? Large...
Why had I not looked into these little dolls until now? I think mines a juvie girl, but only molt will tell! Any other fans?
Want to start a thread for someone - u know who you are ;-) xo
Anyone have any blue tarantulas they would like to share photos of?
Which blue tarantula is the most gorgeous to you?
I was considerigng getting pamphobeteus antinous... JEt Black & Huge
but wanted to know what the best looking Species in the pamphobeteus genus are!!!!
post pics & your opinions!! thanks!!!:biggrin:
All the males are Awsome looking.. but thats obvious !!!
Is like asking crickets or roaches. Which do you think is better?(easier to breed, easier housing, small space taken up, noise). No I don't feed my tarantulas Doritos or lays. My dogs prefer cheesy nachos , but will eat either.:laugh:
After visiting numerous PetSmarts and observing the awful conditions in which the Ts were in, I decided to create this petition. I have posted about it on other social media but with little progress because of the average person's disinterest in or misinformation of the creatures we know and adore....
The enclosure previously used had a fir/coco substrate. I did not sterilize the enclosure, but did do a wipe and changed substrate to just coconut.
Is my T in danger?
I've pretty much decided this juvie Texas tan at my favorite head shop has to be mine. I take it as a sign as my old MM scorpion died of old age. Now I have a pre set up viv...
Any owners of Texas tans with stories?
So at the local reptile expo I picked up:
Brachypelma verdezi x2
Caturumi argentinsus x2
Scolopendra alternans x2
Ami sp. "Columbia"
is there anything i can take or drink or whatever to lessen the symptoms? wow i've never known pain until now
Hey guys. Had My obt for a few weeks now, woke up to find he had completely barricaded his front door. Expecting him to have molted the next time he shows himself. He was about 3" dls. Prior.
I picked up two b. vagans at my local shop. They are less than an inch and pretty pale. Both are cute and shy and got the pair for $15.
I'm thinking about going deeper in the hobby by breeding something. So far this is what I've come up with to care for the egg sac: pull after 30 days, rotate sac at least 3 times a day, keep moist but not wet, and keep it at a higher temperature (75f-78f?). So this brings me back to my original...
well, I got 3 new LP's today. 2 are for myself, the 3rd was a breeder freebie so I gave that one to my brother in law. I was told they would be 1 inch... here's the pictures of my 2 slings, my brother in law's is about the same.
enjoy the pics.. ;)
and Number 2...
Hello all, I am new to owning a tarantula. I recently acquired a G. rosea. I have her in a critter keeper at the moment with Repti bark for substrate, half a coconut with an entrance hole for a hide, and a small water dish. When she's in her tank, she's a "pet rock" most of the time. She moves very...
Hi everybody! :biggrin:
Well, i have a dilemma I was dealing with for about 3 months now..i've been a proud owner of Poecilotheria species for several years now, and i haven't had any problems with them..I've never seen any make a threat pose and i owned practically every common pokie...Now,...
I have several species in my collection that are considered "pet holes." I knew this before buying and don't have a problem with it because, even then, there was activity of some sort to let me know things were ok. I often notice substrate moved around, new webbing, food gone, etc. so I feel...
Well, those of you who theorized that Ginger was a WC specimen must have been correct. Last night while I was checking on the "kids", I checked on Ginger to see if she molted yet and....NOPE. Instead, she was sitting on a big, fat egg sac. :eek:
I took some pics last night but all of them are...
People have been debating over when you're "ready" to deal with hotter species of T a lot around here lately, and to be honest I understand where both sides are coming from. It just seems like in the heat of said debates, communication became less clear and chaos ensued. Having made it a point to...
So, I have been digging around on the internet, and I am interested in feeding superworms. The reasons behind this-
1. I cannot always make it to the petstore, I am only 15, but I will be driving in July, so this may or may not be a permanent thing.
2. My crickets either die or get...
The T dealer I have ordered from exclusively at this point has a great deal on B. smithi slings going right now, so I decided to snatch up a couple while I had the chance. While I was at it I figured I'd take advantage of a 5 for $25 deal and maybe, just maybe grab the C. marshalli I've been ogling...
I got my first pamphos a bit over a month ago, a 2" ultramarinus and a slightly smaller nigricolor. The nigricolor is always out, shows no desire to burrow or use a hide at all and molted out in the open. The ultramarinus, on the other hand, burrowed down under its hide and completely back filled...
I'm new here and having a bit of trouble locating some information so I apologize if this is a stupid question.
Is there a list of genuses somewhere stating whether they are NW or OW? I'm VERY new to the world of T's and am researching every aspect I can in order to make the most educated...
