    I finally got substrate dried and all terrariums washed so today was rehouse day.

    First up was my Caribena versicolor, Jazz. It quite happily wandered out of its old container and posed for a couple of photos

    And more pics in the catch cup

    Next up was Frio, the Caribena laeta. She really gave me troubles, her web was so strong and she had so many tunnels to hide in. I even found a moult in there which explains why she was hidden away last week. She's still sitting in the catch cup in her new home.

    Rift, my Ceratogyrus meridionalis, gave no trouble at all

    Dewey, the Orphnaecus sp negros, vanished. I was starting to panic although I'd seen it last night but a few minutes raking around in the substrate found it and from then it gave me no trouble at all.

    Lastly and by far the easiest was Ember, my Grammostola rosea.

    @LadyFang618 We're lucky being able to buy from Europe without restrictions although that may change with Brexit.

    @Enn49 are u on any of the Facebook forums? I actually just found a lot of breeders here that have rarer species that I didn't know about cuz a friend of mine on a Facebook T forum PM me a bunch of sites and told me what to look for. He's super cool and has lots of knowledge. His name is Ian Heslop.

    @LadyFang618 No, I don't use Facebook at all and as I'm in the UK I can't get Ts from US breeders.

    Glad the rehousings went well, I wish I had that kind of cooperation from my tarantulas (two in particular). I've never heard of one of the species pictured. Amazing specimens.
