      So cute! That little Avic is a fatty for sure! Do you have something for her to climb on? They need things to climb on and attach webbing to. They also need cross ventilation. Looks a bit damp in there.

      This is just the tub I took her home in. She's in a vertical enclosure with plenty of ventilation, an upright piece of cork, and plants to hide in. They had her in a tiny, flooded, critter keeper. I couldn't leave her there like that.

      Awesome CD. Can't wait to watch these grow up.

      The B. albopilosum will be a great beginner T for you as it will grow much faster than the A. chalcodes, and it will keep you very entertained with its bulldozing and appetite (I had one leap up and grabe a cricket out of my foreceps once. Actually, I think I have the video here:




      I would also say your little sling there looks premolt, but I could be mistaken. It appears to be dark underneath its urt patch on its rear. Seeing that it looks quite full, it won't harm it to not bother it with food right now. If it is premolt, you wouldn't want a cricket to try to eat it when it molts.

      I am excited for you!

      I have a chalcodes and a hentzi. Both are wonderful eaters as well as being docile.

      Oh yeah, I would definitely say that spiderling is premolt.

      I another week or so, you should have a newly molted T. It is important you don't disturb it until it recovers from the molt. At that size, I would give it a week after its molt before offering it food.
