Still unchanged, I'm sure it's dead now. I was skeptical about keeping one of these, besides that they have special needs. It is supposed to be critically dependent on hi humidity and it has been warm too. What I don't get is that it can be so alive and healthy looking one day and just dead the next ?

Guess I'll stick to the tough big stuff like Lassy's, Nhandu's, Theraphosa and such. I re-checked my feeders and especially my crickets again. Definitely no problem there, they are gut- filled and healthy. Found 2 funny long worms, about 10mm long , dark color with yellowish stripes scurrying away, with my Dubia roaches? Will take photo tomorrow and see if someone knows what they are?

Sorry to read this deon, also wanted one now im a bit sceptic. Please check those links I posted, from healthy to dead very fast. I must agree the lasiodoras might not be flashy, but are tough. Same with my nhandu Carapoensis.

Thanks Martin, yes I read the post, but no new info there. All my Brachey's and Gramma's came through with no problems too. Only lost a B. emilia once before, but that had a ruptured abdomen, probably from rough handling in the post. I am always nervous with these tiny slings. I have two tiny S.hoffmanni's to raise, but I'm not taking any chances. They will be going to my friend, Henk, who raises hundreds of tiny slings.

Much better are Theraphosa's. Their little slings are already 4 cm and a stirmi of mine that just molted - I swear it grew to 10 cm's in one go.

And that's why i would never ever feed crickets. we only use roaches. a few years back a biiig cricket breeder lost basicaly all stock and ts died due to disease in the crickets. Ive seen too many prolems with ts when crickets are used, so we stay away. Ai very sad about your baby. always heartbreaking when you lose one.
