      Don't trust a perfect person
      and don't trust a song that's
      flawless.

      No genic? For shame!

      Good thing I came along

      (If this somehow isn't a genic, well... this spider has a lot of explaining to do!)

      So, a bit of a backstory with this photo. I took a trip to the pet shop (gasp!) that I bought my very first T at. I've been knowing the owner for quite some time now as I used to get all of my reptiles from him. Needless to say, after all of the researching and obsessive reading on keeping tarantulas, I was appalled. I won't go into extreme detail but they just were not caring for their Ts well. One of the shelves where the keep some of their Ts is right by the door which they keep open on really cool days. It's been in the 40s-50s F here so that draft coming in and out can't be well for them?

      Anyway, one of their smaller A. avics was on that shelf, and she seemed to have had a really bad molt, leaving two of her legs dis-configured. I was able to reach in and extract the molt, and the employee allowed me to take it home. A quick look under my microscope and low and behold we have a confirmed female! I've been thinking about "adopting" her, so hopefully she can have a better molts to come...
