|More new tarantulas|
|Adding to the collection. I went back to the lad who had Sitar, and got the rest he had listed on Craigslist. A prize lot, truly.|
|Ventral shot of Mae West.|
|C thoreli, Malaysian earthtiger, I'm calling her Mae West. While Mae West was docile the day I got her, even letting me pet her, I now know she is protective of her large new habitat. She would not give the ruler back, either. She is nearly 7" in legspan.|
|Mae West size comparison. I do not have a small hand - my hands are as large as some mens... so she really is 6+" legspan.|
|Moji-Toes, probably A. metallica ( pinktoe) supposed to be a female. She is an aboreal, which means climbing, so her jar is taller than wide. (May 2011, I think Toes is a he. Doing well, eats sparsely, webs well, but looks male.)|
|Heavily webbed up in her little cup. OBT. Or in this case, probably GBT. Guaranteed Bitey Thing. (Update - Flibbertijibbet walked quietly into his/her new habitat. Next day was webbed and tunneled in. No threat pose. But basically a pet hole, as she can't be seen. )
Flibberty is the same type of T as the baby OBTs, a P murinus. They truly are a striking orange color.
Flibbers matured out in the spring. He is currently out on a breeding loan. Fingers crossed!
|Unknown supposed to be female. Conundrum is her name, and she is devoid of any stand-out markings. She may be a he, and could be anything at all. She was a "do you want one more?" purchase.
Sadly, Connie was lost shortly after the Freeze, she could not manage to molt post-freeze.
