  • Robert created a new topic ' T's to trade for Brachypelma's.' in the forum.

    Hey there guys,how goes.

    I have a few T's I would like to trade for Brachypelma species of roughly the same value.
    I'm looking for the following Brachypelma species.Preferably juveniles or sub-adults and known sex if possible.
    B. albiceps , B. auratum , B. boehmei , B. emilia , B. klaasi , B. smithi , B. baumgarteni (if anybody has one of these beauties by any chance).

    I have the following T's available to trade for above mentioned Brachypelma species.
    -Acanthoscurria chacoana (Bolivian Salmon Pink) roughly about 8cm. legspan,if I remember correctly I suspect it's a female.
    -Acanthoscurria geniculata (Brazilian Giant Whiteknee Birdeater) roughly 15cm. legspan,female.
    -Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens (Green Bottle Blue) roughly 7cm. legspan,suspected female.
    -Lasiodora klugi (Bahai Scarlet Birdeater) roughly 14cm. legspan,unsure about sex.
    -Lasiodora parahybana (Brazilian Salmon Pink) freshly molted last night around 12cm. legspan,looks to be female,but hard to tell,the spermathecae is so bloody small on this species.
    -Monocentropus balfouri (Socotra Island Blue Baboon) roughly 5-6cm. legspan,if I remember correctly I think it's a female.
    -Monocentropus balfouri (Socotra Island Blue Baboon) roughly 4cm. legspan,unsexed.
    -Pamphobeteus platyomma (Brazilian Pink Bloom) roughly 6cm. legspan,unsexed.
    -Pelinobius muticus (King Baboon) roughly 3-4cm. legspan,unsexed.
    -Phormictopus cancerides (Haitian Brown) roughly 11cm. legspan,I think it's a male.

    Anyone interested can send me a pm.
    Or "whatsapp" me on 072 432 9872

    Thank you

    Robert

    Absolute stunning species.

    In my opinion...I'd guess they would need about the same living conditions as with other Tropical New-World species in the South Americans.Temperature around 22 to 27'C and humidity around 65 to 80% at most,and provide enough substrate if they prefer to burrow...just in case.I'm not certain whether they need any special requirements like with the Megaphobema mesomelas,or Theraphosa species.

    Just my opinion offcourse.

    That sucks Duan,sorry to hear about the eggsac being eaten.It's very unfortunate.It would have been totally awesome if you were able to hatch out that eggsac.

    I tried mating my female a few years back,but she molted out unfortunately. :(

    Congrats on your achievements Entomology,great job your doing regarding the P. metallica's.

    It's all well and good and great for the hobby... but when is somebody gonna start giving attention to our Theraphosa dilemma and start breeding them on a large scale to flood the hobby with Goliath's that everybody so desperately wants to add to their collection.

    In my opinion they are a total must have for any serious collector out there,and really not that hard to take care off. :P

    Good afternoon guys,hope all is well?

    Does anyone know where a guy can buy Palm Peat Bricks for a decent price?I looked around today at Plantland and some pet shops and they are charging outrageous prices for a single brick!!!

    Does anyone know where a person can purchase large quantities of Peat Blocks for a reasonably good price in the Pretoria region?

    Help will greatly be appreciated,thanx.

  • Robert replied to the topic 'Identify this spider' in the forum.

    I think I agree with you on that one Deon.

    Latrodectus renivulvatus it is then.

  • Robert replied to the topic 'Identify this spider' in the forum.

    Don't know if I'm correct,but I think this spider might be part of the Latrodectus species.

    Either:

    L. cinctus (East Coast Button spider)
    L. indistinctus (West Coast Button spider)
    L. karooensis (Karoo Button spider)
    L. renivulvatus (Inland Button spider)

    One of those I guess.

  • Robert replied to the topic 'What MM are available for sale or breeding loan?' in the forum.

    Anyone here know of someone who has a MM Acanthoscurria juruenicola (Brazilian Orange Banded) available for breeding attempts?I have a buddy of mine who has a big female ready and waiting,and we would like to breed them again.We had huge success about two years ago when the female dropped a large eggsac.

  • Robert replied to the topic 'Suggestions needed please' in the forum.

    I agree with Deon,seeing as I'm a huge fan of large Terrestrial species aswell.

    I would opt that for New-World,you could get your'self one of these :
    Acanthoscurria brocklehursti Very similar in pattern and colour to the Acanthoscurria geniculata.
    Acanthoscurria chacoana Very nice in colouration,better than the Lasiodora parahybana.
    Acanthoscurria geniculata They don't know when to stop feeding,always cool to watch them hunt for prey.
    Acanthoscurria juruenicola I love the orange on these species.
    Lasiodora difficilis
    Lasiodora klugi Really big and bulky in size.
    Lasiodora parahybana Grow really big as well.
    Pamphobeteus fortis If you can find any.
    Pamphobeteus platyomma If you can find any as well.
    Phormictopus atrichomatus They can be quite defensive like Old-World Species.
    Phormictopus cancerides


    And for Old-World I would suggest :
    Monocentropus balfouri Very Stunning Old-World Species
    Pelinobius muticus Probably one of the best Old-World Species for any collection in my opinion.
    Hysterocrates gigas
