  • EvaB created a new topic Interesting question in the forum.

    I know many people debate about tarantulas escaping and the problems that could arise with that, but what about feeder insects that escape, imagine a few roaches escaping and later a colony of them in your backyard....

  • EvaB created a new topic Question: Dyskinetic syndrome in the forum.

    I have been wondering if Calcium could also be a possible cause of Dyskinetic syndrome. Many cricket breeders give the crickets all kinds of food to eat from such as dog food and the like. Many of these products have a lot of calcium included in them. Tarantulas whom get too much calcium have lost limbs for example, as I understand it. In humans if too little calcium is in the body the symptoms could include twitching among other things. Calcium overdose also bring about an overdose in Vit D and Iron absorption is also hampered. Calcium play a role in the cell's biology, it binds to a wide range of proteins and it alters their biological activity. So Calsium is important in nerve impulse transmission and the contraction of muscles but tarantulas do not have bones so what could Calsium help them with in any way. To absorb calcium one needs the sun i.e. light, and as far as I know tarantulas do not really need light. So could it mean too much might have a similar effect.That there is an overdose of certain elements and a reduction of others due to the overdose of Calcium. How does Calcium affect hydration levels for example? Because of the fact that tarantulas move via blood pressure in the legs (like hydrolics ?) and not with bone and muscles.
    Any thoughts ???

  • EvaB created a new topic Is this a Harpactira tigrina (golden baboon) in the forum.

    A friend found this and asked me what type it is, can anyone maybe say for sure. It is now about 5cm. Very aggressive when I opened the plastic container it struck repeatedly and if I am not mistaken it made a faint hissing type of noise. Apparently there are hundreds of them at the place he collected it from. He let it go there again so I cannot really take any other pics so hope it is sufficient.

  • EvaB created a new topic Hysterocrates gigas (Cameroon Red Baboon, Tawny Red Baboon, Cameroon red) in the forum.

    I got myself a H gigas sling and I am a first time owner of one. So, I would like to know if anyone can tell me a bit about them, their behaviour, and any interesting facts. Do they start the swimming thing early on does anyone know? They seems really interesting and look like they could be very good escape artists so I have tried to secure the glass enclosure very well. Is there anyone selling them at the moment as I might want to buy more.

  • EvaB created a new topic Avic versicolour in the forums.

    My sister has a versicolour and what amazes me is that it lives and THRIVES in it's enclosure with very little humidity and water. She covers the enclosure with a piece of stocking to ensure good ventilation. Why is this? Now and then when she remembers she squirts water into the enclosure. She had it since it was an itty bitty sling. Could it be ascribed to not over-caring and fussing? I am in no way implying that she does not love the T.
    I add a picture of him/her, but this was taken a while back as it looks even better now.
