So it’s been about a month since my last thread… Guess what, folks ?
Still no molt :ulty:
But at least she is still willing to come out and be pretty.
And then she felt like “mooning”
This is how she usually greets me in the morning
Now that I have a dedicated closet for her, there is actually space for one more so she may have a neighbor above in the future… time will tell.
I’m considering between the Trinidad Chevron or the Ivory Ornamental.
Both are fairly attractive species.
I can’t get over how the markings near the eyes of the Ivory Ornamental make it look like it’s constantly frowning and looking pissed
I’m expecting for my Mexican Fireleg to finally molt in the coming days/weeks… she is due for one.
How social are these things? How can you be sure they won’t murder each other?
They need to be caged seperately, because having two in a cage ends up with one really fat spider. The Ornamental for one is said to be faster than a person can react. That’s why I’m taking my sweet time before plunging in again so I don’t end up getting something I can’t handle. Could always go for the classic Mexican Red Knee, it’s slightly less skittish than the Fireleg.
Hi Charl, how’s things ?
Anyways, it’s past midnight. I need some sleep. If more questions arise, I’ll happily answer them in the morning. Just remember folks, I’m in no way an expert in spiders. I’ve only worked with 5 diffrent species so far, but none have been considered potentially venomous. The Ornamentals possess that type of venom yet a bite from one of these won’t kill a person, but you’d feel like crap for several days. I have plenty of time before I really go “there”.
What’s the worst thing that’s happened to in relation to handling your spiders?
