Just wanted to share some of my T activities. It's been quite a while since I made a post..
My P. cancerides recently molted. She is showing some purplish blue coloration and now at 9 inches.
My N. tripepii molted a few days ago. Big girl also at 9 inches.
My 10 inch L. parahybana...
Hi guys. Just opted to share this experience. I just decided to rehouse my 7inch female vulpinus and I successfuly did but here I am at the hospital swollen with red marks and with a headache. It must have been the urticating hairs. I have been doing this for almost 5 years yet this was the 1st...
I have a 7 inch female geniculata which I raised from 2 cm. She was on her favorite spot in the water dish lifeless. All the while I thought she was drinking since I usually find her there. She just molted a couple of weeks ago. I inspected here now and just found out that 1 pedipalp was...
My T's were left out due to my illness that I was battling for about 5 weeks in and out of the hospital. Finally I've recovered and I'm back home in my hometown and home here at the forum. Sorry I have not been active during those times. I haven't seen my T's for a month until this morning...
I'm currently at the hospital getting ready for a minor operation on my waist.
I was asked if I got bitten by a spider or any venomous creature. I don't remember anything like that.
It was just like the bite photos over the net. At 1st it was a blister. Then a wound opening . Then the flesh...
Hi all. Recently I received some dwarf hisser roaches, 3 pairs of them. I don't know exactly what to do with them. I haven't tried feeding them to my T's.
I currently keep a colony of lats and dubias and previously a colony of harlequins. Anyone keeping dwarf hissers as feeders? Should I keep...
I've been busy these past 3 days preparing before the super typhoon lashes..
Last time, I lost 2 T's and 2 colonies of roaches due to a typhoon..
While I'm preparing, It's good to see some slings molted..
I often get 3 molts a day... not daily I mean when I have molts oftenly I get 3...
Today 3 slings molted..
P. murinus (rcf)
But they are inside their burrows.. I can just see them from under so I can't take good photos.. so eager to see if I can see new coats of...
If a T refuses to eat I offer a different type of feeder until it eats.. but if does not, I leave it be.
Dubia (not interested)
Superworm (not interested)
Lateralis (not interested)
Cricket (pounces it up quickly)
Superworm (not interested)
I've been checking T's at a local breeder and some of them got me interested. But I was looking for caresheets and found none yet. Got any information on the following?
Not 3 days ago I had an additional 5 slings..
I just said that It would be the last additions for this year..
Now I'm tempted by a local dealer just around the corner..
I never had them before.. I'm more on a terrestrial keeper.. time for an advance...
An hour after my vagans finished molting, It starts to chew its own molt. Isn't its fangs are still soft that it may get injured? It worries me.
Should I remove it?
Does it really need the remaining moisture from its molt?
