    Default B. auratum and N. chromatus

    Feeding night so took a few pictures of the 2 T's with full color. A lot more are in pre-molt so hopefully more pics soon.
    Brachypelma auratum


    Nhandu chromatus:
    The pink spots are on her abdomen because she thinks she is Miss Thang and can kick hairs at me. It's cute.

    Very nice!! I especially like the Nhandu . Have you had these since slings? If so how old are they?

    No I didn't. I had to restart my collection after a move (not doing that again, restarting that is). The B. auratum is likely around 3-4 years old with the Nhandu younger ~2, although it it is actually bigger.

    If I didn't have such a reaction to the urtricating hairs. I would still have my trio (1.2) of B. emilia and group of Pink-toes (2.4)... (I really love the Avics...)

    Did you ever try the old worlds? More of a punch but no hairs. I don't react to any of the species I've dealt with so far, but I may just be lucky.

    N. chromatus is a favorite of mine. Extensive white is unusual in t's, the only one I can think of off the top of my head with more are Heteroscodra maculata, which are mostly white (and I have a sling of). The downsides with those are a terrible bite, and a very secretive nature even though they are arboreal.

    N. Chromatus is a definite to my collection for next year!

    Any pics of that H. Maculata sling?

    The H mac doesn't have any color yet. Probably won't for a while yet either. Right now its just a tiny black spider. I do have a few slings of other species that just molted and are starting to color in. I will post pics when I can.

    Kicking hairs? Sorry but I've never heard that, mainly because I'm not a spider person. Can you explain for me. Thanks
