    Thank you Stanley. It is not her first egg sack and there is no smell and she has had them for about 3 weeks. The enclosure is not very wet but it has a water bowl in it that is kept full at all times. i will however go and whet some medium tonight if it is not too late and even consider opening the egg sack if the egg sack is old enough....will just have to check the date on the container tonight. ill come back and let you know how it played out.

    My B. boehmei female just leaves her egg sack to lay around for long periods so when i get close she starts ambling back towards the egg sack but does not pick it up. Has this happened to any body else? the sack is large and still nice and white.

  • Carlo replied to the topic 'Use of Isopods in enclosures' in the forum.

    i have also been using Isopods in my enclosures for my larger and adult spiders! they are champions when it comes to cleaning up and they do not hurt your T's when molting. i no longer use them in the smaller t's containers because they also make good food for smaller spiders!! and as the guys have said they are easy to breed yourself. i have a water bowl in all my enclosures with sub and adult spiders in so all i do is when i fill the bowl i just over water the bowl a bit so that it spills and wets the surrounding area to the bowl and that is sufficient for the isopods. I learned from the advice that Jake (formerly know as Cascade!) gave me many years ago!!!

    I am back just in Time for a little :reallysick: and a little :starwars: and some shit stir and some more kungfu and uzi and even some :sick: and some :eyepoke:

    Hi Taki and all the people that does not condone the fighting! This has been a very helpful forum to me since i started the hobby and i take my hat of to Taki and Dimitri. Thanks Guys! It has been a sometimes thankless job that you have been doing and still you kept at it!! You must love Tarantulas!! they definitely cause less sh@#t in the forum than people!! Now i have sucked up enough! :tongue:

    Trouble starts brewing when people get jealous, power hungry or even feel insecure about their position in a group. Park your pride and your sh@#t before you enter! And then when we enter it does not matter if we spell bad or use common names! i do however use Latin names and try to point people in a helpful way in the same direction. That is what a forum is fore! To teach people and to help people without self importance!! It is not the Carlo or Piet or Who ever forum but the Tarantula forum. The only important thing here should be the Tarantulas!

    1) T Sales here has helped me over the years in both the buying and selling of spiders but i do agree with the human factor that Taki has highlighted and even people using the forum to chase up or down prices depending on their buying or selling position. If you wanna sell your spiders here do it through the forum shop or not at all. If you can find an alternative that works ill support that! Ill rather lose the ability to sell and buy than the forum!

    keep in mind that if the buying and selling gets banned then the forum will lose some members...... don't know if that is good or bad!

    So it would seem that the right moderators with the right Authority, attitude and speed would be the only option

    2) It is our duty to keep our hobby as legal as possible but the majority of the time it sets of a hyena fight over useless bones! All regularities should be delt with by the Moderators and admins in private. Instead of a free for all the first person that see a illegal post /action/topic should inform a moderator by PM and the moderator can handle the issue by PM to the offender. as an example...the majority of OBT questions in the forum gets asked by uninformed people so let the moderator inform the culprit of the legal status and then delete the thread!. That thread should not be an opportunity to Dump your weeks pent up frustrations on the poor guy! Then we have also succeeded in teaching the chap!

    3) Life does not give you three strikes but Taki you are a most generous guy so i agree with the strikes and the people cant claim that they were not warned.

    4) I am also pro Latin names but we should not shoot a newby down for using common names....rather educate him about the importance of correct Latin names and do it in a PM! Correcting people in public creates tension and resistance to the idea. Spelling!!!! Eish! I can only say that the most helpful person on this forum is also the worst speller with the worst grammar....... but he has never chided me for asking a stupid question, has never been unwilling to help me with anything tarantula related and i have learned a lot from him! I do not have to name him! Just look for the worst spelling from the most helpful person!! :woohoo:

    Camerons Additional Points (Tm)
    Point 2 i agree wit Cameron....personal stuff should stay of the forum and "skinner" should not be allowed either!

    that is my 2 cents worth for now!......but stay awake! i might make a comeback with more! :happy:

  • Carlo replied to the topic 'Nature Trivia pursuit .' in the forum.

    as i have it...all mature specimens have the darker toes, male and female.
    The difference is the humps behind the hind legs on the male that the female does not have and the females are fuller bodied than the males! and those are the two sexual dimorphisms.

    Only my 2 cents worth!
