The Addiction Grows

5 posts in this topic

Listen, it was bound to happen someday! I already spent a good deal of time considering these, and I did already put a solid 2 years of research under my belt, and after a really cool visit to a local reptile show it looks like I have three tiny lads joining me!! Somewhat impromptu, but I am prepared and thrilled to have them.

While it's hard to get pictures since they're tiny and it's really only the golden boi out and about, they're really cool and I'm so glad I have them. As positive as I can be, life has been really rough this past year, especially recently, and these hobbies really keep me afloat. c:

 

Also, all three are from Jessica at FangFarm and I really loved talking to her and I'm very happy with my Ts. She's very knowledgeable, her collection is a really cool mix of new worlds and old worlds, and she was very patient with my questions and enthusiasm. She even gave me the H. columbia for free, since I was so torn between all of the species and wasn't sure what to choose.

In the words of a friend, "those are the cutest tarantula enclosures I've ever seen." Well listen, it was the best I could find. I got lucky and got two three packs for $4, and they're nice and very small while being easy to modify. And yes I see in hindsight only one of the labels is in italics, I'll change it later. Now they just need names, since "Heart Ass","Pumpkin Booty", and "Goldfinger" aren't the greatest names out there.

 

[Now to keep from getting more to fill the other three jars I bought... :P]

Uh-uh, I strongly disagree, I think those are PERFECT names! :lol:

Very nice. I have each of those species. My recommendation is to keep their enclosures small. If you put them in too large of enclosures you will never see them...ever. I have actually rehoused mine to smaller containers. I don’t know how big those jars are but they will probably never out grown them. I use these 32oz from dollar tree. They are all fierce eaters for sure. My C. elegans is still in a Parmesan container. I doubt it ever outgrow it.

Actually I don't think these show the scale of how big they really are!

I know what you mean about jars like that, and one day I'll be moving them up to deli cups and later bigger jars. These things are actually REALLY SMALL, the base can fit in the palm of my hand. They're just little craft jars, I guess? I found them in the craft jewelry section of walmart. The incei is really easy to find in them, and the other two are VERY TINY and harder to see but its not impossible.

I do understand what youre saying though, I've read and notice the same things, and even though the jars might be a little big for the smaller two its definitely not unmanageable. Thank you for the advice anyway! c:

I had a tarantula named General Bald Ass, so those names work.

Bitchface was a name given to my pokie after he bit me, Karma got him though, when his mate ate him.
