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...
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
Does this species have tibial hooks or nah? What was sold to me as a female seems to have boxing gloves so naturally I want to pair it with my female, does anyone know if the MM of this species hook out or not because I don't see hooks so it still may need another molt if so

Fascinating update on one of my rescue spiders coming when I wake up (pic unrelated) this shows me mature female regalis out and about and the big male(?) Having its first big meal since molting (background)
