P. sp 'Platyomma', ~2" in pre-molt
P. nigricolor, ~3.5". This T is crazy. Doesn't threat, just attacks. Also the only T I have that's really into kicking hairs.
Finally took some pictures of my burgeoning collection. My camera is a real POS, so bear with me.
Freshly shed boehmei
Freshly shed Brachypelma sabulosum, 4". May be vagans, not totally sure.
Poecilotheria subfusca 'Highland', recently molted into 3/4 instar. ~1.75"
I originally thought it was a male, but now I'm not so sure. I'll probably have to wait another molt or two to get a better idea.
I got to set up a regalis communal, obt communal, and unpack another two ornata slings. 12 fast slings, and not a single problem escape attempt .
OBT communal, 5 2i slings. Part of Garrick's 8 generations inbred group.
regalis communal, 5 2i slings. Also got these from Garrick.
Very cool collection ya got! Not just the every day Ts in there.. love it!

Start the week on a creepy note, that's what I always say! - Craig Ferguson
Both of my Psalmopoeus irminia molted a couple weeks ago and were in desperate need of a re-housing.
A few pics of the irminia
Vent pic of both of the P. irminia. I 'think' the one on the left is a male and the right is a female. Definitely not sure about that though, might be two males...
The tarantulas were so calm I decided to handle one of them, and it couldn't have gone better. The little one was very calm, relaxed and deliberate in its movements.
Awesome pictures. That B. boehmei is gorgeous! Also, I love that picture of the little regalis party. Pretty darn cute. I miss when our platyomma had his Christmas tree, he molted recently and it was gone! Just like that...now he's starting to look like a Pampho, and I'm not the least bit upset that he's male because he's gonna be a looker! I am also really starting to love the Pampho genus, we're getting an antinous next weekend...can't wait!

I forgot, they're also my favorite T to feed. They hit their prey HARD!
a few of my new slings -
Cyriocosmus ritae (recommended!) Got some C. elegans too, but they were all burrowed away when it came to picture time.
Pamphobeteus sp Platyomma (just sexed him as a boy, but he's gonna be BEAUTIFUL!)
Grammostola pulchra (got 4 of these little guys because my gf thought they were cute, I couldn't be happier. They are champs when it comes to feeding)
Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens (such a fantastic species)
Avicularia versicolor (can never have too many!)

I bought a subadult pair of P. nigricolor. The female's at least 5.5" and the male's about 5". I'm going to do my best to get more of these in the hobby. It's a tragedy that they're not more common!
Male - I can't wait for this guy to mature. Stunning!
Female - I can't wait see her right after a molt.

A proven breeder female Avicularia versicolor I got for a pretty amazing price.

Young mature female Poecilotheria miranda I recently purchased
Last but not least, my pride and joy a 6" Poecilotheria subfusca Highland female I got along with the P. miranda.
