Default New Addition

I was kindly gifted a Selenocosmia Crassipes at the weekend, sheís had a bad molt previously which has left her with a disfigured leg. It doesnít seem to bother her, very happy with my first Aussie Spid. Iíve named her Sheila



Currently in temporary housing, awaiting delivery of her new enclosure. Iíll be giving her deep substrate as these burrow

Yep, from my local shop. Due to the deformed leg it wasnít ideal to sell, it wasnít on display as such and Iíd expressed an interest a few weeks ago. Went in last weekend to stock up on food and was offered her, the chap in the shop just wanted a home with someone that could look after her.

They're not ridiculously expensive but adult females don't come up very often. They're a great tarantula and extremely interesting given they're one of the few animals that can prey on cane toads and not die.
