My avic. versicolor came today. :D

Sooo chuffed, she's stunning!

She's been sat on her cork bark for about half an hour just cleaning her fangs though, weird spider. ¬_¬

Will try & get some pics later, might be in a few days though, don't want to disturb her too much. :)

But what I wanted to know.. Is the cleaning fangs & exploring loads a sign she's hungry? Never seen this before with a new T, they always usually just go & sit somewhere & have a shedder lol. :bash:

Reckon I should try a cricket?

But kill it first? & leave it somewhere? So she doesn't get freaked out..

Cheers. : victory:

Congrats on your new addition :2thumb: Excellent choice.

I generally take pics when they arrive or just after unpacking. Drop in a couple of crickets and then leave them alone to settle in. I like to feed a new Avic sooner rather than later since it seems to encourage them to web.

Good luck with your new recruit :)

I forgot to add, no need to prekill the crickets. Avics are amazing little predators :) I love watching mine grab their food mid air or free falling to land on it lol. Great fun.

Hope you have a girlie :)

Thanks Matt :D All the slings from both eggsacs have proved really healthy, strong slings. Fed all the spiderlings tonight....... took me ages and got a bit tedious!

Imagine... Me, tweezers, sprayer, box of tiny crickets and then....

56 gigas spiderlings
6 versi spiderlings
5 M. horrida juveniles/spiderlings
then various other bits n bobs - fasciculata, laeta, the 3 Iridopelma's, and other random stuff......
I didn't have much fun!!!
Chasing crickets that are the size of a pin across my room is NOT fun!!! SO many got out its unreal lol

Then rehoused my klugi and im itching all over :(

Ooohh gigas's are gorgeous :D Can I buy a sling please when they're ready? If you sell them that is..
