    Plants growing randomly in substrate

    I find it interesting that this plant has chosen to sprout now after being in this perpetually wet enclosure for the past 6 or 7 months

    Plants growing randomly in substrate

    Just a place to dump photos of those random plants we occasionally see out of nowhere in our spiders enclosures. NOT for plants intentionally put in enclosures

    Subdue techniques for pinch grip

    The particular species in question is chromatopelma cyaneopubescens, which is verrry skittish and pretty damn fast. I'm not a fan of the technique in the first place, but it has become necessary. Basically what I'm looking for is a way to secure it in one place so that there is a no fail...

    Subdue techniques for pinch grip

    I have a spider that is not very aggressive but is extremely fast that I want to pinch lift. Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I can do this without getting bit or harming the spider?

    After the immediate pairing, these two just sort of hung out with eachother for about 48 hours before I had a good chance to separate the male again.

    Mature female OBT?

    I have a mature male OBT looking for some furrow and a female which is definitely not full sized but perhaps is mature. It's slightly larger than the MM in terms of DLS with an exceptionally larger carapace and abdomen. Can anyone give me the rough measurements of when a female should be mature...

    Allegedly they are extremely venomous, although they don't possess the fangs/mandibles to bite humans rendering them harmless even to children Ik the harmless part is true but I'd need citations on the venom
