  • Calvin created a new topic Dehydrated or Molting? in the forum.

    Hi Guys

    To be honest i hate it when certain T's molt it just makes me worry but this time i think i might just be onto something...

    I just noticed my 10cm female P.Regalis in a weird position... She is upside down with her 3 back right legs straight and the other legs curled in. I am scared she isen't molting but instead dehydrated

    I don't have a waterbowl in the dam tank because i needed to buy one and haven't had one in about a week and prob last time i sprayed her cage was 5 or 6 days ago

    Another thing is her abdomen is a little bit small and it might be a little "Raisin-like".

    Should i just leave her? Spray the tank now with alot of water? Put droplets of water in her mouth parts or move her into ICU?

    Sorry guys just stressing a bit here...

    Hey Guys

    Today i took a look at my L.Violaceopes little tub and saw that it had molted and that the roach was still in there and another suprise... The lil bastard decide to give birth in there.

    I'm rehousing her tonight because she needs it anyways, but my question is ... What would happen if i did actually leave her and the baby roaches in there?

  • Calvin created a new topic HELP! in the forum.

    Hi Guys

    I came home from work today and sat on the PC and at about 4 o clock took a look at my C.Fasciatum's tank and saw he was upside down on his web and i just thought well he's obviously molting...

    Problem is, I came back from going out now and he is still in that same position! That is almost 3 hours! Being worried i opened up the lid and moved some of the web and he moved a little bit but he is still in that position!

    I am wondering if i should move him into ICU but the problem is that he is in a very awkward position, How am i going to pick him up and get him out without hurting him?

    Should i leave him? Try to hydrate him by putting droplets into his mouth parts? Please guys any advice would be appreciated, He is about 10cm big and it would really sadden me to see this guy go

    Please help!

  • Calvin created a new topic Cruelty in the forum.

    Hi Guys

    So like many people i like to watch youtube videos with tarantula's and learn different things... Now i came accross a video that disgusted me, a few actually. I will not post any of the video's on this forum because its pretty violent.

    Basically its some Chinese/Japanese/Taiwanese show where they make insects and arachnids fight... They put them in a small glass tank together and they literally fight to the death Now i find this extremely cruel the way these animals are treated and my question is....... How can we stop this? Report it to youtube? This guy has 723 subscribers and
    1,325,139 channel views!

    His username on youtube is chainsaw1618 so if you guys want to check it out go look for yourselves but i am warning you its disgusting and i cut the video after the first fight between a Mantis and a Tarantula (Can't remember what kind) It's all in chinese.

    Guys if you have any suggestions or anything i would really like to put this to an end how these creatures are treated.

  • Calvin created a new topic MY H.Incei Communal in the forum.

    Hey all

    So today i received 4 X 2nd instar H.Incei slings from snarf which were in excellent condition by the way and i would definatly recommend you guys buy from him! He still has some on sale apparently.

    So anyways i planned on setting up a communal and i did. Here is the setup: (Sorry photos are bad quality, Taken with phone)


    Whats inside it is :
    1. A pinecone for nice hiding spaces
    2. A little wooden chip cave
    3.Fake plants

    So first i put in a large cricket and crushed its head and put it in the middle hoping they would eat it all together... Then put in about 4 little X-small crickets. Then i started to introduce=

    The first spiders ran quickly into the cage. 2nd spider same thing. 3rd spider same thing BUT as i was introducing the 4th the 3rd guy RAN out and i quickly caught him and put him back. These guys are fast! Then i proceeded to watch and to my amazement i must have sat there for an hour viewing different things. What i saw was:

    1. 2 of them ate together on the cricket and the one especially liked the cricket and stayed on it and is still on it right now
    2. the one sat by the cave and as soon as a cricket walked past he pounced on it and got him! Ran into the cave and immdeiatly started eating and webbing up his new territory.
    3. One was just running around the cage.

    Then about 30 mins after the introduction i started spotting the rambo of the group... The fighter... He left the big cricket and ran after the little weak guy with no cricket! They fought and at one point i quickly interrupted them as i got worried Then he went to the guy feeding on the big cricket and carried on feeding with him... The weak one went to go and hide in the cone and 15 mins later ran into the cave and chased the guy with the cricket out! I'm all very intrigued to see what happens next

    My predictions is that the weak guy may not make it but the 2 feeding on the large cricket seem to be getting along, the guy in the cave has setup a territory already and has only come into contact with the weakling..... Hopefully all will go well!

    What i can say is i would recommend these T's! They are fascinating together how they immediatly eat and interact with each other! Best show of T's in my life

  • Calvin created a new topic Remember Me? in the forum.

    Hey guys and girls

    So i used to be part of the tarantulas.co.za community quiet a while ago And about beginning of last year i sold all my spiders and made a pretty good profit off them all. And then i left the spiders alone for a while and carried on with normal life...

    Well...

    I kinda miss the spiders and the community and im back I'm not urgently looking to buy but i would like to start off with some cheapy slings, but please note, i am fussy

    So at the moment i have NO spiders at all Sad i know... But i will get soon and my collection will grow again.
