  1. Yeah it was always my adult males that got out they would do that flutter jump. The dubia ended up in the bed normally and orange heads would end up in piles of clothes. lol Now my set ups are much better so that doesn't happen any more.
  2. I think there arnt many commerce sites. A lot of the members here have blogspot/webpress sites that don't show up in searches as easially
  3. I had the same issue its kinda crazy theres only 3-4 big name people in the non-tarantula side of the hobby. In the fact that they have their own sites and sell insects as their sole lively hood. My first suggestion is facebook groups many are international discussion groups but some are US specific and there are some devoted classified groups. I find them very enjoyable. Theres also faunaclassifieds I go there sometimes cool stuff pops up. Oh and mantidforum.net I tried keeping mantids and failed so I havnt tried recently but they can be cool to read about.
  4. I'm sorry to hear that. I have had a few collapses myself and its not a good feeling.
  5. Any idea how its going? Percent of offspring showing this mutation?
  6. I wonder a lot about hybrids in this genus but I only have the one species to play with I will defiantly try to isolate this morph if I can. This one is a male so I will isolate the females that have not matured yet. These actually mature pretty fast for me most places say 8 months to a year but I think living in texas helps them mature faster I think mine went from hatching to adult in 4 months.
  7. Found this guy yesterday.
  8. I'm glad these guys are doing well for you and there are more in the hobby in general my pair is breeding just as well as my white spots so I think these should be more available in a year or two.
  9. Yeah moldy dog food is the worst. I also will try to place it on a piece of corkbark turned flat like a plate or on top of leaves so it doesn't touch the soil. In really humid tanks it still doesn't make much difference.
  10. I realized recently cheerios are 100% oats and have been using it with my roaches that are slow eaters since it doesn't mold as fast.
  11. So this is kinda a random post. I'm feeling great it's fathers day, I realized I am 2 months away from having been on this site 2 years. I also officially hit 30 species of roach in my collection I just want to send my thanks out to the people in this community who have made this such a fun experience and traded their knowledge and bugs with me. You guys are the best.
  12. There are deciduous trees around it's interesting because the pines start near Bastrop which is where I hear the bananas live.
  13. Jurassic park styles
  14. Its about a predatory cockroach that's pretty wild looking https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn27439-predatory-cockroach-from-dinosaur-era-found-trapped-in-amber/?utm_source=NSNS&utm_medium=SOC&utm_campaign=hoot&cmpid=SOC%252525257CNSNS%252525257C2015-GLOBAL-hoot#.VUN6BvlVhBf
