      Brachypelma emilia Fan Club

      Hey you fans out there, I know you're out there. Let's hear it for Mexican Red-leg Tarantulas (B. emilias!!!)

      These Brachy's are gentle, slightly flicky, gorgeous spiders

      Who was that masked tarantula anyway?

      Me, me, me! I'll join this fan club, too! :-) I have five of these beauties: Benden, Ista, Igen, Telgar and Honshu. They arrived on 1/6/2011 at 0.5" and now range between 2.5 - 3.0". They usually stay buried in their respective tunnel networks. The following pictures are of Telgar, the most visible of the five.
      At ~1.0"

      Hanging from the ceiling of its coconut shell hide after its May molt.

      Most recently in its new found hangout on top of its hide.

      Believe it or not, she is only 4 inches. She is currently in premolt (I hope). She has bulldozed her hide shut and stopped eating. But she hasn't turned dark yet.

      Here are some more pics of her through the last couple molts. I have had her six months, and she has only molted twice on me. I keep my T room warmer than most and tend to feed my Ts heavily, so this really shows their slow growth.

      Her first molt with me was an upright molt.

      These Ts are one of the most beautiful in my mind. They are so elegant and graceful. And I love their temperament. I put her on my arm and she will explore around me, walking over my shoulders to the other hand.

      She is phenomenal. I am so excited for my males next molt. I hope his colors are close to your girl, and that he stops being such an urt.

      My guys/gals get fed once a week and are kept at room temp, which could be anywhere from 60 - 80 degrees F. Two have molted 4 times in the past 10 months, one molted 5 times, the other two 6 times. All kept on the same shelf, same substrate, same prey items, etc... no rhyme nor reason. It's a conspiracy to keep us keepers hopping! :-)

      Yeah, I am beginning to realize that Brachy's may be slow on molting but they at least grow some with each molt. Not as slow-growing as the Aphonopelmas have reputations for. But with Aphonopelmas, I think they have a reputation of no apparent growth from a molt. My emilia girl (Gloria) is a month past her due date, and she was a month late the last time too. I think her cycles have slowed down more than other species I have. But I do expect her to turn dark any time now. She has stopped eating and sealed herself into her hide.

      Being sacmates, I am sure yours will be just as gorgeous.

      I think it depends on the species of Brachy or Aphonopelma, and you might as well add Grammostola to the slow growing list as well. :-) I have several A. burica who have doubled their size in the past four months. "Doubled" meaning I can see them with the naked eye now. LOL My A. seemani, who was ~0.75" in July is going pass up most of my Brachy juvies if they're not careful! She's already caught up to the G. pulchripes.

      Believe it or not, she is only 4 inches.
      Hopefully my guys will put on some more color with their next molts.
