Boots, my A.avic (Guyana Pink Toe tarantula) has started eating again!
Im not sure how it happened but over a month ago I noticed she was missing a fang. She had shed a while before that so my guess is that it broke off during shed or something happened to the new one. Either way, I put a cricket in her tank a couple of days ago and today when i came downstairs she was munching on it. I think she’s having a hard time eating it to be honest as its now night time and she’s still got hold of it.
I’m hoping she’ll follow suit like the rest of my T’s and just regrow the fang when she next has her shed. For now i’m just glad she’s eating finally!
Indeed. Today I brought home 2 new tarantulas. A new Togo Starburst (Heteroscodra Maculata) and a new Indian Ornamental (P. Regalis.) So now the current Tarantula list looks a little like this:
Avicularia Avicularia (Guyana Pinktoe) - “Boots”
Brachypelma Smithi (Mexican Red Knee) - “Bonnie”
Pterinochilus Murinus (Orange Bitey Thing) - “Rotor”
Heteroscodra Maculata (Togo Starburst Baboon) - “Togo”
Poecilootheria Regalis (Indian Ornamental) - “Iblis”
Brachypelma Albopilosum (Curlyhair) - “Curly-wurly”
Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens (Greenbottle Blue) - “Sai’an”
Cyclosternum Fasciatum (Costa Rican Tiger Rump) - “Tigger”
I’ve not put any pictures up of them for quite while so I shall have to do that tomorrow once they’ve all finished sucking on their crickets.
Today I went and bought myself 2 new tarantulas! Slings to be exact.
The first one is an Orange Baboon Tarantula (Pterinochilus murinus) AKA OBT (Orange Bitey Thing). Its not exactly a tiny sling, but not big either. Its the most beautiful orange colour. I thought I’d have a lot on my hands trying to re-home it from its sling pot into my own little pot for it but honest to god it was more chilled out than most of my other T’s have been when being rehoused!
The second sling I bought is a real slingy sling. TINY! Its a Togo Starburst Baboon (Heteroscodra maculata). Honest to god I cannot wait for the Togo to grow up! They’re beyond amazing as adults! Rehousing this chap was pretty tricky as its such a weeny babby! So fast too. A bit more challenging to rehouse than the OBT, but both safe and sound!
I’ll be taking some pictures of them tomorrow no doubt so keep an eye out for them. I’ll be going back to the store tomorrow to check out what other T’s I can get my hands on.
As promised, here is the latest tarantula, my chromatopelma cyaneopubescens AKA Greenbottle Blue, Sai’an!
Sai’an is only small, still has a way to go until he/she is an adult but already look at the colour on the abdomen and legs coming though. In this picture Sai’an is sitting patiently waiting to be housed in his new clean home. The tank I got him in that he was housed in when collected was a mess. I must have spent a solid hour scrubbing it clean for Sai’an to go back in. I’ll take some pictures of him/her when he’s more settled into his new home.
In the mean time, welcome home Sai’an!
Today I go drive down to Nottingham to pick up my new Tarantula, Greenbottle Blue (Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens) who i’ve already named Sai’an! She’s stunning, (well I say “she”, its not been sexed yet :D)
So we shall see when Sai’an gets here! Hopefully my tyres will hold out for the journey, its only a 40 minute drive so I imagine they’ll be fine!
Pictures as soon as I get back.
Indeed. It shall be the arrival of yet another T. This time, a new Greenbottle Blue who I shall name Sai’an. Pics to come.
