A "few" spider pics.

Avicularia versicolor






Brachypelma boehmei - Itchy little red fireballs.


Haplopelma lividum


The "I'm so ashamed what have I done" belly rub.


Poecilotheria fasciata


Phlogius sp. Aussie Goliath


Pamphobeteus sp. "antinous"


Poecilotheria metallica


Different angle - Poecilotheria metallica


Another typical P. sp. "antinous" after mating pose:


Poecilotheria formosa


P. formosa - getting a bit of unanticipated help from the magical male-saving stick


Looks like he was successful...as wrong as it may have been.


Poecilotheria regalis


Poecilotheria ornata


Pterinochilus murinus




Psalmopoeus irminia






Theraphosa stirmi










Breeding stuff
Ceratogyrus marshalli: Wasn't going to incubate these at first since I didn't think the male actually was successful.


I was soooooooo wrong.




I posted a breeding report, but here is a recent N. tripepii 2nd instar.


Nhandu chromatus 2nd instar recently hatched.


Some more Nhandu chromatus. Seems only one eggsac is good from this species each year. The others only have a dozen or so and whoever drops the last eggsac has the big one.






Not my best work, but P. fasciata:








P. metallica








Psalmopoeus irminia:






















Fresh Molts:
Acanthoscurria geniculata - She's a big girl and her mate is fired up and ready to go!


Acanthoscurria chacoana 1.4 All recently molted. Hopefully mating pics will follow shortly.


Brachypelma emelia: The prettiest of all the brachys.....though that title switches depending on whichever cage I've opened at that time.


Brachypelma albiceps: Mating pics coming soon.


Lasiodorides polycuspulatus



New Arrivals:
Avicularia versicolor


Poecilotheria metallica - Ultimate Male






Random Stuff:
Grammostola rosea RCF


Chilobrachys fimbriatus


Poecilotheria regalis - Ultimate Male


Not sure what he's doing up there. Perhaps he should be in a box.

Frogmom, just like snakes, spiders can be addictive too. I never would have believed that I would have one and now I have two.

Re: A "few" spider pics.

I dont know how you do it. I have a fairly serious spider phobia but the pics are amazing...and they are really quite pretty as long as they stay there ; )

Re: A "few" spider pics.

I love that the magical male saving stick actually says "magical male saving stick"!! Thank u soooo much for sharing those are some great shots!!! My favorites are the ones of the egg-sacs and hatchlings.
I grew up with the same B. Smithi until she passed at 34 years of age. A year after that, I bought a 1/4-1/2" B. Smithi. I couldn't believe how tiny he(unfortunately turned out to be male) was. He is six y/o now but as he was growing I saved his first molt and his first molt with color. I have them displayed next to his enclosure as a reminder. Blows me away every time I look at them. Therefore, I can't begin imagine what you must experience holding an eggsac and having it come to life in your hands. Awesome.

i'm starting to kind of like them....... getting the desensitizing Tx again !

the post above says he/she had one for 34 YEARS. My son will be delighted to hear he gets the parrot and a spido that live 30 years. LOL

I wonder if Dr. Spider would send me just ONE of those itty bitty babies. Just put it in an envelope and right HAND CANCEL.

Re: A "few" spider pics.

You have gorgeous spiders, and considering I have severe arachnophobia you should take that as a huge compliment! I have, however, considered a pet tarantula of some sort.

Re: A "few" spider pics.

I don't like spiders as I do have a phobia of them. But I do like tarantulas more than spiders. I can appreciate them, and the one's you have posted are very nice looking and I love the colors on some of them. Very nice collection of them you have there and the red and blue ones are my favorite.

Take care
Tom
