      TGrin Slings are amazing.

      The beginning of April of this year, I decided my health was stable enough to begin keeping again,
      a wonderful friend sent me a care package with some slings and an adult female T on April 11th
      0.1.0 Aphonoplema chalcodes
      0.0.1 Idiothele mira
      0.0.1 Phormingochilus carpenteri
      0.0.1 Harpactira dictator
      0.0.1 Chilobrachys sp cambodia blue
      0.0.1 Heterothele gabonensis
      0.0.1 Augacephalus breyeri

      4/21/2018 I went out to tend to some business and was gone the biggest part of the day,
      came home to find my slings under a massive ant attack. The worst being the tiny I mira,
      took immediate action, rehoused everyone, etc etc. the little I mira ended up casting three legs, THREE!

      Broken hearted for the poor thing and guilty as anything for it happening, totally should have been avoided.
      5/10/2018 the sling ate two pinheads in the evening, (gave them a little shake in a container to stun them for it.)
      5/11/2018 woke to do bolus checks and general maintenance and found said sling on the cork doing spider yoga, exo on the ground.
      legs fully regenerated! Little hard to see, didn't want to bother it right after molt but all legs are there and intact.
      The absolute resilience of these guys never ceases to amaze me 20 days, that's all it took...
      There's a certain freedom in having nothing left to lose!

      That's good news. I am raising three of the same species (H. dictator, I. mira, A. breyeri), I'm guessing we bought from the same seller. Did your I. mira give you issues during unpacking?

      For some reason I read your title as "siblings are amazing" and I was trying forever to figure out what siblings had to do with the post. It's early and I'm on my first cup of coffee.
      Anyway, that is great news. They are amazing little critters!

      Its in a condiment cup for the moment, one of those 6 or 8 for a dollar reusable types, going to give it something deeper now that it has legs to dig for itself again though, made it a little burrow when I rehoused it after the ant incident under a little piece of bark, seems happy in there and utilizes it which is why I haven't moved it yet.
